At What Cost points out the pervasive hypocrisy of our schools which profess to champion a balanced, enriching life for young students, but yet burdens these vulnerable hearts and minds with impossible academic and extra-curricular standards. However, Dr. Gleason does not leave us doomed with the reality of the anxiety, stress and depression that so many young students suffer at the hands of teachers, parents and administrators who care, but are trapped in dysfunctional structures that perpetuate our children’s academic misery. At What Cost provides specific examples of how various schools have made real, effective changes to provide an authentically caring, balanced academic environment without compromising academic integrity and reputation. These are not one-size-fits-all solutions, but proven methods for an academic institution to develop its own, unique solutions for creating a healthy academic experience. Ultimately, At What Cost? is not just a must read, but a must do!
