  Learning Objectives: At the end of the Session participants will: (1) understand how perceived school pressure tends to increase with age and is differentiated by gender, with older girls reporting the highest levels of school pressure; (2) learn how systematic differences in schooling and external factors that impact school practices and policies can partially explain observed differences and trends in children’s and adolescents’ perceptions and experiences in school; and (3) understand how, given their unique position, schools and educators can best support children’s positive academic, physical and emotional development.
