Education isn’t just about learning, it’s about learning with maximum efficiency. For many students, however, classrooms are full of distraction and few are optimized for learning.
Looking at student drop out rates and college completion statistics, it may seem like motivation is a missing trait in many of today’s students.
Many believe that the students of the 21 century struggle in school more than previous generations, and rising dropout rates and lowering college completion statistics indicate this is very true.
While financial reasons are often cited as the number one reason students don’t attend college, a more pervasive problem is college dropout rates.
Keeping students focused requires a balance of engagement, excitement and helping them own their work.
More and more often, teachers are reporting that their pupils seem unhappy, unmotivated and disinterested. Changing curriculum, changing teaching methods and even altering the subjects being taught hasn’t had much of an impact on this trend – so what is causing students to be miserable in school?
A teacher’s role in the classroom is to help their students succeed. Not just in school, but in their lives going forward.
With high school dropout rates reaching 8.1 percent in 2014, and college drop out rates even worse only 70 percent of college freshmen continuing on to their second year, there seems to be a problem with motivation among America’s student populations.
