Schulzufriedenheit von Österreichs SchülerInnen ...

„Insgesamt zeigen die Daten eine hohe Zufriedenheit mit der Schule und vor allem mit der Klasse. Schüler/innen der Sekundarstufe 1 stehen der Schule größtenteils positiv oder zumindest neutral gegenüber: 59 % geben an, gern oder sehr gern in die Schule zu gehen, etwa ein Viertel (27 %) äußert sich neutral. Insbesondere in ihrer Klasse fühlen sich die meisten Schüler/innen wohl. Etwas mehr als drei Viertel der Schüler/innen äußern sich in Bezug auf ihre Klasse positiv, weitere 16 % neutral und 9 % geben an, (sehr) unzufrieden mit ihrer Klasse zu sein.“

Schüler, die sich in der Schule sicher fühlen, erzielen tendenziell bessere Bildungsergebnisse ...

„Schüler, die sich in der Schule sicher fühlen, erzielen tendenziell bessere Bildungsergebnisse. Im Gegensatz dazu kann ein von Respektlosigkeit, Mobbing, Schikanen oder Gewalt geprägtes Umfeld das Lernen massiv erschweren. Mobbing in der Schule kann sich für lange Zeit negativ auf das psychische Wohlergehen der Schüler auswirken und erhöht die Wahrscheinlichkeit, die Schulausbildung vorzeitig abzubrechen.“

Two in three students satisfied with their lives ...

„Across OECD countries, just about two in three students reported that they are satisfied with their lives, and that percentage shrank by five percentage points between 2015 and 2018. Some 6 % of students reported always feeling sad.“
Angel Gurría, OECD-Generalsekretär. In: OECD (Hrsg.), PISA 2018 Results. Are Students Ready to Thrive in an Interconnected World? (2020), S. 3.

An average of 23 % of students reported being bullied ...

„In the latest edition of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), in 2018, an average of 23 % of students reported being bullied at least a few times a month, most often boys and low-achieving students vis-à-vis girls and high-achievers. […] Students who are bullied experience more negative schooling experiences and report higher levels of negative feelings, such as sadness. Bullying is also associated with poorer academic performance, although negative relations with peers could be both a cause and consequence of low performance.“
OECD (Hrsg.), Crime & punishment (2020), S. 2.

A safe and supportive school environment promotes and protects ...

„A safe and supportive school environment not only promotes students’ academic achievement, well-being and self-esteem but can also protect them from engaging in deviant and risky behaviours. […] According to PISA 2018, students who attend schools with a high prevalence of bullying are more likely to feel a weaker sense of belonging, a poorer disciplinary climate and less co-operation with their schoolmates than those in schools with a low prevalence of bullying.“

„Moderate use (between 30 minutes and 3 hours per day, depending on device and timing) was associated with the highest mental well-being. Children who did not use technology, as well as those who were very intensive users, had lower well-being.“

The overall link between technology use and adolescent mental well-being is negative but small ...

„An analysis of data from the United States and the United Kingdom suggests that the overall link between technology use and adolescent mental well-being is negative but small, explaining only 0.4 per cent of the differences in mental well-being. Many common activities that do not draw as much media attention – such as eating breakfast, cycling or getting enough sleep – have a larger association with adolescent mental well-being. Among negative factors, screen time had an association with adolescent well-being four times less strong than that of being bullied.“

Children who have a strong sense of belonging to school tend to have higher academic achievement ...

„Children who have a strong sense of belonging to school tend to have higher academic achievement. As school is such a major part of most children‘s lives, it is reasonable to suppose that aspects such as school belonging also contribute to life satisfaction.“

Between 2003 and 2015, students’ sense of belonging at school seems to have weakened ...

„Between 2003 and 2015, students’ sense of belonging at school seems to have weakened. On average across 30 OECD countries with comparable data, over those 12 years the proportion of students who reported feeling like an outsider at school increased by 10 percentage points, from 7% to 17%. Similarly, the proportion of students who reported feeling awkward and out of place in their school increased by 9 percentage points, and the proportion of students who reported feeling lonely increased by 7 percentage points.“

Ein lernförderliches Klima als unverzichtbare Faktoren des Lernerfolgs ...

„Ein lernförderliches Klima wie etwa der Aufbau und die Pflege der persönlichen Beziehungen zwischen Schülerinnen und Schülern und Lehrkräften sowie die Lern- und Unterrichtsatmosphäre, die durch Selbstachtung, Respekt, Vertrauen und Gerechtigkeit geprägt ist, gelten als unverzichtbare Faktoren des Lernerfolgs. Ein hohes Wohlbefinden der Schüler/innen in der Schule und ihren Klassen ist somit auch ein wichtiges Ergebnis schulischen Handelns.“

„Ein positives Schul- oder Unterrichtsklima wirkt sich nicht nur auf das Wohlbefinden der Schüler/innen und deren Lernerfolg aus, sondern auch auf die Wirksamkeit der Unterrichtenden, das Selbstvertrauen und das Engagement der Lehrenden in der Schule und im Unterricht. Die Unterrichtsdisziplin hat Einfluss auf das Schul- und Unterrichtsklima, insbesondere auf das Element der emotionalen und physischen Sicherheit.“

„Die hohe Schulfreude von Kindern mit Migrationshintergrund und solchen aus bildungsfernen Familien zeigt sich am deutlichsten beim Vergleich nach dem Index der sozialen Benachteiligung.

Unusually high rates of maladaptive behaviors are found among affluent youth ...

„Unusually high rates of maladaptive behaviors are found among affluent youth beginning around seventh grade, including substance abuse, eating disorders, and even suicide attempts. These are thought to be a function of high rates of stress associated with a culture of competition and peer pressure, coupled with inattentive or permissive parenting in the context of depersonalized school settings.“

„In PISA 2015, Chinese students score among the lowest in the world in terms of self-reported life satisfaction. Stress and dissatisfaction can sometimes lead to tragic consequences. According to the 2014 edition of the Annual Report of China’s Education, a high share of teenagers who committed suicide were pushed to the brink by the heavy pressure of tests and exams.“

„School-based extra-curricular activity has been identified as being a particularly powerful and positive form of extra-curricular activity for enhancing achievement (i.e., more so than home- or community-based extra-curricular activity). Being school-based, this form of extra-curricular activity tends to increase students’ identification with the school, promote positive school-based values, brings students into closer proximity with teachers who can help them academically, and promote positive peer affiliation – all of which are important factors in academic achievement – and apparently especially effective for low ESCS migrant students.“

Top-performing students are less likely to feel bad without an Internet connection ...

„The impacts of new technologies and devices on mental health may vary significantly across children. Highly skilled individuals are likely to be better informed about the risks associated with extreme usage of technology and to pay more attention to screen time and use of personal devices. Data from PISA suggest that top-performing students are less likely to feel bad without an Internet connection.“

„Well-designed after-school programmes can make a considerable contribution to the educational and social development of young people, and to staying on in school. Attractive opportunities for young people to engage in sports, learn a musical instrument or get involved in handicraft and other practical activities can help build social and professional skills, while countering the risk of isolation. Empirical evidence confirms the positive effects of extracurricular activities on schooling outcomes and career prospects.“
