http://www.telegraph.co.uk/educatio...to-blame-for-rising-mental-health-issues.html "In many schools, the problems are not new and while more money and resources are now being diverted to address mental health issues, a few still appear to care more about their academic results than the mental health and well-being of their students." "The boom in tutoring, for instance........ can be seen as an entirely understandable response by parents to the over-rigorous testing and entrance exams, often poorly communicated by schools by smoke and mirrors, and undertaken in such a way that shows little consideration for their impact on children and families involved." "schools must recognise that it is not competition and hard work that causes stress and mental health issues among their students, rather fear and anxiety." "What students don’t need as they navigate the often difficult years of adolescence is to be over-monitored and managed, but rather guided and supported by informed adults. More counsellors are urgently needed, and, in some instances, the ethos of schools needs to be changed." Thoughts?
