Kids have always killed themselves. Sadly, they probably always will. Some have genuine emotional problems that stem from childhood or simply the way their brains are wired. But many are probably more to do with problems which, in teen years, seem much more serious at the time than they really are - as in two of my examples above. Teenagers can get problems and anxieties completely out of proportion. Sometimes, I expect, those will be problems with school, but that will always have been the case. Equally often, I suspect they will be problems with relative misdemeanours or love gone wrong. This is tragic, but it is not the fault of the education system.
