‘MUCH HARD EVIDENCE HAS
ACCUMULATED THAT CIVIC
CONNECTEDNESS ARE PRACTICAL PRECONDITIONS FOR BETTER SCHOOLS,
SAFER STREETS AND EVEN HEALTHIER AND LONGER LIVES’(Robert Putnam)
Students’ connectedness to school has been identified as among the greatest protective factors against polydrug use, absenteeism, pregnancy, and unintentional injury, even after taking family
influences into account.
Connectedness in Schools
Students feeling of connectedness was the #1 protective factor against suicidal behaviour.
Students who feel connected to the school are also less likely to drink alcohol,
carry weapons, or engage in other delinquent behavior (2)
“Social connectedness is the magic bullet. “
“Social connectedness comes through cultural and community development -- building connectedness in the places where we live. That's what we need to be doing: building local connectedness on a global scale.”
