When nearly 5,000 Naperville students took a survey to determine the sources of their stress, many wrote heartfelt answers to free-response questions.
“The kids would say, ‘Thank you for asking these questions,'” said Patricia Schacht, assistant professor of psychology at Naperville’s North Central College and developer of the survey. “The students are just really excited to have a voice. They’re really excited to kind of tell us what they’re experiencing and what’s happening.”
