Letters to the Editor...
Do I think we are creating student burnout
in the elementary level in the education
system? Certainly not. Students need to know
how to read, how to communicate and how to
function at an appropriate maturity level.
Homework and testing creates stress for the
student and pressure for the parents but we
have to remember, these feeling will never
go away. The real world is full of these
feelings. So, do we hide students from it or
teach them how to effectivey deal with
feelings like stress and pressure? The
bottom line is students must meet the
curriculum. It is our job to make that an
enjoyable, yet educational learning
experience. Let's start showing kids how to
deal with upset, rather than hiding them
from it. If students are burning out, it's
because we are letting them.
