Unscientific, but....

I asked as many Clearwater students as I could this question:

Were you happy, or unhappy, or did you have mixed feelings about the end of Winter Break and coming back to school?

The same day I asked it to the 4th/5th graders in my own after-school class at a Seattle public elementary school.

(The results are below the fold.)

Number of public school students asked: 22
Ages: 9-11 yrs
Happy: 0
Mixed feelings: 4
Unhappy: 18

Number of Clearwater school students asked: 26
Ages: 7-19
Happy: 24
Mixed feelings: 2
Unhappy: 0

Well, then.

Interesting results. I am currently involved in doing a scientific study of motivation in alternative schools, which means a home education resource center and a democratic school both in or near Portland. I've posted a couple videos about my research as part of a campaign to fund my last semester at Reed College:
