How much is too much?

In the recent years attending 4 year college institution has become more and more difficult.  Students are more pressured to be extraordinary, to achieve impossible levels of excellence to be able to compete for the most coveted spots in the nation’s best schools.  Overwhelming classes, never-ending homework, and intimidating standardized tests are leaving kids exhausted and throwing in the towel on the future of their education.  How much is too much?  The documentary “Race to Nowhere” covers the heightened pressures of the school systems and explores the dangers of not letting children be children and not teaching them the learning skills they need to succeed in higher education.  A must see for all parents and educators!
