Pressure from parents: Do students need more of it?
From social to academic, there is no doubt that today's students are under pressure. But is it enough? Not according to the American public. A recent Pew Research Center study reports that 6 in 10 Americans believe that parents do not put enough pressure on their kids. And the majority of the world agrees. Students, on the other hand, do not. In fact, a survey of students at top high schools reveals that many of them are worried about grades, tests and college acceptance, and don't need any additional pressure.
Could more parental pressure help students to succeed academically? Or do students have enough on their plates without having to worry about pressure from parents? Check out our infographic below and weigh in.
