2% of American students say they are “never bored” in class. 66% report they are “bored in class every day” and nearly half (47%) of all high school dropouts said a major reason for dropping out was that their classes “were not interesting” (Macklem, Boredom in the Classroom, 2015). This is a critical issue for all education stakeholders because a bored student is a disengaged student. Disengaged students are much more likely to underachieve – and this has a disparate impact on disadvantaged students.

NeverBore is the first education consultancy that demystifies the process of making teaching student-centric and active, helping frustrated teachers keep their students engaged in the learning environment

NeverBore exists to increase learning outcomes and achievement for all students by offering services that promote and advance active learning strategies that help educators build engaging classroom environments that get rid of boredom.
