Implications of Student Health Problems on Achievement and Engagement
La Salle, Tamika P.; Hagermoser Sanetti, Lisa M.
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v4 n1 p10-15 2016
Healthy students are better learners. Establishing positive school climates where students are healthy, engaged, and prepared to learn is a critical component in increasing student engagement and closing the achievement gap. As such, educators need to be aware of the impact of education-related outcomes on student outcomes and schools' ability to provide support to students in order to maximize their ability to be successful. The purpose of the current paper is to present prevalence data on student health problems, discuss the effects of student health problems on student achievement and engagement, and present recommendations for school psychologists and educators to address student health problems within the school setting.
