yes because high school students have a lot to be anxious about.... serious i would love to go back to highschool again .....
User avatar #57 to #44 - Crusader (12/27/2013) [-]
That's you going back to highschool knowing what to expect

People in highschool have a lot to be anxious about

Where they're going to end up
What people think of them
What they did wrong
What if they do something wrong

Throw that into the volatile cocktail of emotions/hormones that is adolescence, and you have a recipe for social anxiety

Why? High school is a joke... when I was in high school, I literally did my homework in class, went home, played video games, and then slept. Rinse and repeat. It's really not that hard or stressful. Not as much as college, where you have a planned schedule and classes are only offered once a year so if you **** up, you have to wait a whole year before you can get on track again.

I have a feeling you were never under extreme academic pressure at a very rigorous school.

Coming from a Highschool Student who is loving this **** .

What? Does anyone even know what it's like in Japan and S. Korea? Kids in the USA, Canada and well not sure exactly what it's like in European Countries have it pretty damn easy compared to them.

I mean.. After watching a documentary and later researching well, mainly Japanese students I felt so lucky I'm free to at least go home or do things I want to do outside of school.

REALLY?!?! ARE YOU REALLY SURE THAT HIGHSCHOOLERS HAVE THE SAME STRESS LEVELS AS AN INSANEASYLUM PATIENT?!?! ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY ******* SURE?!??!

studies show students today are actually learning more information per year than any generation before.

As a high school student who attended a 						******					 district and is currently attending a good district, it really does depend on the school. My school is full of kids who are so 						*******					 stressed out of their minds about grades, extra curricular activities, college admissions, and scholarships/financial aid. The other school I attended has kids that don't even know what an SAT or ACT is because the most "success" that comes out of that school is people who go straight into work or the military without even a second thought on college.   
   
I'm not saying that people who don't worry about college are unsuccessful, but there is definitely a big difference in stress levels compared to those who worry about college.

Globally or just in the US?
User avatar #155 to #150 - vladhellsing (12/27/2013) [-]
Most of the studies that get posted unnamed are typically from the US, who don't feel the need to make that distinction since they're generally unaware the rest of the world exists.

Probably because we're ill-equipped to deal with regular problems.

Cause we're dumbasses.

If they think life is hard now, just wait until they get into the real world.
