I will read the article ASAP but i hope the article does not suggest the mental and physical issues WITHOUT considering the effect of video games and social media consuming the quantities of time in student's lives these days.I do not want to push my kid unnecessarily, and am trying to find the right balance of courses for him. In my area, there is a big push for AP and Honors courses - though some private schools are doing away with AP courses.
It seems like some of the kids are not doing well with the current system.
The March 23-24th, 2019 WSJ article "The Right Way to Choose A College" , mentioned the following
"More and more students are reporting severe sleep deprivation, anxiety, depression and thought of suicide as they struggle to meet unrealistically high expectations foisted upon them." ... The ultimate irony is that, even when these students do end up in selective colleges, many of them continue to struggle with mental and physical health issues, and often lack the independence, resilience and sense of purpose they need to graduate and enter the workforce."
There was an article in yesterday's WSJ, February 13, 2020 titled "Mental-Health Requests Strain Employees."
