  1. The avalanche of homework, studying all night, lack of sleep, extreme stress, anxiety, depression, and suicide ideation are well and alive in many colleges — community colleges as well as 4-year universities. There are lots of college student suicides and suicide ideation, too. The media/public needs to be aware of the ridiculous overwork, stress, and competition in many college and grad school programs.

Schools need to stop focusing on how they measure up, or test grades, and start focusing on their individual students. I get that this may be hard, especially in larger schools, but it is very important for student learning. Maybe instead of teaching to the test, schools AND teachers should teach for long-term learning.
