This is a difficult read. The students of Issaquah High School in Washington self-organized to write testimonials to the school administration. I think the debate over schools has had plenty of discussion of teachers unions, parents, student performance, etc.. but I was really impressed to see them put together so much thoughtful feedback. I don’t know the solution, but the price being paid in mental health and stress is pretty clear.

And let’s remember – this is a wealthy school in a well-supported district.
