Research done into fear of failure at Milton Peters College

Research student Jibbe Stokkermans and Department Head HAVO/VWO Naomi Richardson 


On May 6 and 7 Jibbe Stokkermans, student from the Graduate School of Teaching in Utrecht, executed a small research into possible factors for fear of failure by high school students on St. Maarten. Students, Care team and a teacher from MPC were interviewed or filled out a survey.

In June the results will be shared with the school and will be used for further internal research and the development of a strategy to prevent the occurrence of fear of failure.

The University of Utrecht and SVOBE Schools have been collaborating for years and on an annual basis students are sent to St. Maarten to commit educational research that is beneficial to the highschool students of our island.
