HuffPost Table Talk: The Crush of Schoolwork

Every Friday, the Huffington Post editors highlight one of the most compelling news stories of the week — a story to spark a lively discussion at your family dinner table.

This time of year, students of all levels are feeling the heat. Many are in the midst of a barrage of midterms; others are cramming for upcoming tests. And older students are frantically putting the finishing touches on their college applications. Last month the New York Times reported that the emotional health of college freshmen is at its lowest level on record. Campus counselors across the country are seeing more and more students arriving at college stressed, depressed, on psychiatric medications, or all of the above.

Visit The Huffington Post for more on this week’s download, which deals with the issue of schoolwork and the pressure for students to succeed.
