College students can face tremendous pressures. This is especially true in China, where an entire family's hopes and dreams may be riding on the academic success of one child. Commentator John Richard Schrock recently returned from a visit to China, where he learned firsthand about the pressure facing some Chinese students.

Commentator John Richard Schrock is a professor at Emporia State University, where he trains future biology teachers. He's also traveled extensively through China, where he's been a guest teacher and lecturer since the 1970s.
