Pressure to score

He had written: "This is not my chemistry paper but the last exam I am writing. I am so bored of my life. I don’t want to live any more. When I am dead, I do not want my body to be taken to India.” via TheNational.

This has to be the most outrageous news that I read this week. A 16 year old hanged himself because he wanted to make a statement to the school board to reform the teaching methodology! What the hell is the world coming into, these days, where we give our kids so much pressure to perform in school that they have to find another way out? Does the problem lies with the school board, the parents or the society?
