Are students turning violent because of the pressure to succeed'

Yes. today’s kids have to cope with immense pressure because of sky-high expectations from their parents. If they fail to realise their ambitions, they become frustrated, and often violent.

Yes. Unable to handle the pressure, some students are buckling under it. Campus violence is one of the results.

No, it is television that is responsible. Students are, of course, under pressure but the reason they turn violent is because they are exposed to mindless violence on TV.
