The sketchnotes above are from the recent New York Times article Seeking an Edge, Teenage Strivers Turn to Stimulants.

Excerpts:

“Once you break the seal on using pills, or any of that stuff, it’s not scary anymore – especially when you are getting A’s,” said the boy who snorted Adderall in the parking lot.

“It’s time for a serious wake-up call.  Straight A’s and high SAT scores look great on paper, but they aren’t reflective measures of a student’s health and well being.  We need to better understand the pressures and temptations, and ultimately we need to embrace new definitions of student success.”
