14/4/2017- Are students happy at school? Do they have good relations with their peers, teachers and parents? Is there any link between the quality of students’ relationships in and outside of school and their academic performance? These questions are central to “Students’ Well-Being: PISA Results 2015 (volume 3)”, the first OECD PISA report that analyses students’ performance in school, their relationships with peers and teachers, their home life, and how they spend their time outside of school. The findings are based on a questionnaire that the approximately 540,000 students in 72 participating countries and economies completed in addition to the main OECD PISA 2015 Survey on science, mathematics and reading.
