Is academic pressure sole reason for student suicides?
Sunday, 7th February 2010
We're still a few weeks away from the board examinations. For the past few months the entire country has been agog with the news about the sweeping proposed educational reforms.
CBSE had already announced that the Xth board exams are optional, other state education departments have made similar recommendations to the local governments, yet there is a sudden spate of reported cases of several teenage students, as young as 12-year-olds having committed suicide. Is academic pressure the only reason for such random acts of suicide?
