DR teenagers happy but do poorly in school

Most teenagers in the Dominican Republic are happy with their lives but schoolwork anxiety is an issue, according to the first Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) PISA assessment of student’ well-being. The study looked into students’ attitudes towards academics, their relationships with peers and teachers, their home life and extracurricular activities.

The findings are based on a survey of 540,000 students in 72 participating countries and economies who also completed the main OECD PISA 2015 test on science, mathematics and reading.
Dominican students fared poorly in science, mathematics, and reading.
