Overloaded and Underprepared: Helping Students Find Balance in the South Bay Pressure Cooker
Our society has become so focused on grades, test scores and performance, that little time is left to develop the necessary skills to become resilient, ethical and motivated learners. Hear from Dr. Denise Pope of Stanford’s Challenge Success on the practical, research-based tools parents need to create a more balanced and academically fulfilling life for kids. After all, success is measured over the course of a lifetime, not at the end of a semester.
The Families Connected Speaker Series is presented by Beach Cities Health District and South Bay Families Connected, in partnership with Hermosa Beach City School District, Manhattan Beach Unified School District and Redondo Beach Unified School District.
