Academic Perfection Can Hinder Students

Olivia Libowitz wrote a strong piece about the pressures of academic perfection in this week’s edition of The Elm. Parents are always wanting their kids to do well but at the same time, yet there is also a lot of pressure that is put on that comes with that hope. Students bury themselves in textbooks trying to get that perfect GPA yet forget about their own mental and physical health. Olivia’s article makes so many great points and also includes results from various studies. Take a peak at the link below!
