Voicemail Project: Are High School Students Being Over-Pressured?

Nov 14, 2018

Being a high school student isn't easy. There's pressure to get the grade, participate in extracurriculars, and sleep enough to function. It's rare young people can do all three. 

So we’re asking you: Are you a high school student with too much on your plate? Do you feel pressure from your parents, teachers, or peers to take on extra classes or after-school activities?

If you are a parent or educator, do you believe students are taking on too much? What do you think can be done to create a healthier school-life balance?

We want to hear from you for our Tuesday, November 20 show. Call our voicemail line at (860) 580-9677 and tell us your story. And be sure to leave your name and a phone number where we can reach you.
