Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7

Gallup Research Kick Starts Conversation in District 7
Dr. Tim Hodges, Director of Research with Gallup spent time in Spartanburg and the District speaking about hope, engagement, and well-being, and how measuring those outcomes can strengthen student readiness for learning.
Last year the Gallup Student Poll found that while 54% of the children surveyed felt hopeful, 46% feel stuck or discouraged about the future. Hodges noted, “That is real cause for concern.”
Next week D7 will administer the 2014 Gallup Student Poll to 1800 children in grades 5-12 with 20 questions like: “Did you smile and laugh a lot yesterday?”, “Is there an adult in my life who cares about my future?”, and “Is my school committed to building the strengths of each student?”
We believe this important feedback will help us improve hope and engagement and enable us to better prepare our students for college, career, and life.
Gallup is providing this Poll free of charge.
