Gallup Student Poll
The Gallup Student Poll measures the hope, engagement and well-being of students in grades 5–12 through a new, groundbreaking survey administered anonymously in America’s schools. Gallup will conduct the poll twice annually, in March and October. The national results will be used by America’s Promise Alliance, the American Association of School Administrators and others in designing appropriate responses that support youth.
The early administrations of the poll have shown that more than one-third of students surveyed in grades 5 – 12 are struggling or suffering, and half (50 percent) are not hopeful, as quantified by Gallup researchers.
The findings provide local and national leaders with insights into the perspectives of their students. School system administrators and community leaders across the country will use the results to benchmark changes in local attitudes and design tailored interventions to better meet the needs of young people
