PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A new survey says Rhode Island public high school students are stressed about grades and their general well-being.

The state Department of Education survey says more than 70 percent of student respondents are frequently worried about academic grades. The Providence Journal reports that 63 percent reported they were stressed about personal events in their day-to-day lives.

The survey also found that few students are of the opinion that teachers care about their emotional well-being.

SurveyWorks - the independent study commissioned by the state - asked students, teachers and families dozens of questions about school safety, student engagement, teacher-student relationships and family participation.

Narragansett Superintendent Peter Cummings says the results of the survey aren’t a surprise, though it is a “greater call to action.”
