I think the stress level in schools are rising today more than ever.

With the onset of economic turmoil and the need for recent or soon to be graduates to find jobs, the amount of stress has multiplied. These soon-to-be job seekers are hoping their good grades will benefit them in landing a job. This leads to an even higher emphasis on grades than ever before.

The luxury of not working while in school seems like an old fairy tail. Many students are working full-time, or nearly, tomake ends meet. Many students have been reported to make themself sick from anxiety, lose their appetite, lose sleep, become easily aggrivated and simply give up with an overwhelming sense of desperation.

It’s reported 1 in 5 students have seriously considered dropping out entirely.

Hopefully with the turn of the economy we will see heart rates back to normal.
