Our Schools Made These Changes

  • Reduced homework and busywork
  • Changed school schedule/added late starts
  • Implemented project-based learning
  • Started student wellness programs
  • Modified grading and assessment practices
  • Launched advisories and tutorials for students

As a Result:

Kids got more sleep

Kids cheated less

Kids engaged in learning

Kids worried less

Kids felt supported by teachers

Kids performed just as well or better in school

This Matters Because:

Most kids don't
get enough sleep. High
school students need 9
hours and only get about 6.5 hrs

95% of high school and 90% of middle school kids
admit to cheating

1.2 Million kids drop out of U.S.
high schools

25% of adolescents
are depressed

50% of college students
say they feel
overwhelming anxiety

Students with helicopter parents are less open to new ideas
and more vulnerable, anxious, and depressed
and Students perform better, are more motivated and engaged in school,
and are more likely to persevere when they feel connected and supported.
