Yale University’s happiness course is now being taught in high schools

Lessons in happiness and wellbeing led to significant changes in positive attitudes in Chinese high school students, according to a study.

Students aged 15 to 16 at Beijing’s No 19 High School were given a one-semester course in happiness and wellbeing.

The study reported significant changes in positive attitudes. The course also improved ‘affective balance’ – the ability to weigh-up negative and positive emotions associated with life experiences.
