This model posits direct relationships between all the social psychological variables and school engagement, and also indirect relationships between life satisfaction and school engagement as mediated by all the other variables in the study. The participants were 2381 students (1119 boys and 1262 girls) with average age of 15 years, from 40 national secondary schools in Malaysia. The findings supported the theoretical conceptualization. All variables were positively associated with school engagement. The strongest relationship was observed between overall life satisfaction and school engagement. The mediating model was partially supported. The study reiterates the adage that “it takes a village to raise a child”. Implications for practice and future research are discussed in the context of engagement in school learning.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12540/653||DOI:||https://doi.org/10.1016/j.adolescence.2015.10.001|
