OECD on School climate and student behavior

January 20, 2015 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Improving School Climate and Student’s Opportunities to Learn is a new release  from the OECD Teaching in Focus series (vol 9, Jan 2015) DOI: 10.1787/5js7sf14gd7b-en

The summary on the first page, says:

  • “Almost one in three teachers across countries participating in the 2013 Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) reports having more than 10% of potentially  disruptive students with behaviour problems in their classes.
  • Teachers with more than one in ten students with behaviour problems spend almost twice as much time keeping order in the classroom than their peers with less than 10% of such students in their class.
  • Behaviour issues such as intimidation or verbal abuse among students are associated with student absenteeism.
  • Schools that promote participation of students, teachers and parents in school decisions, combined with a culture of shared responsibility and mutual support, tend to have lower incidence of student misbehaviour.”

Alberta represented Canada in the suvey/data gathering.
