Constant Comparison: An Academic Dilemma
Academic success in colleges has been dropping dramatically. Test scores and grade point averages are at sub par levels and people are beginning to wonder why. The reason is low self-esteem in our youth. This low self-esteem is directly correlating with the worsening of academic performances in even our finest universities. This self-esteem is perpetuated by a variety of factors: mental, social, even educational but they all have one thing in common; an obsession with comparison.
