In a poll done by the Journal of Experimental Education in Stanford, 56% of students connected school’s homework with the main stress factor in their life. Only 1% of the students said that school did not cause any stress in their lives. This poll proves that students feel stressed from their school work.

The key word in his argument being any, he makes a conclusion about all hockey teams that doesnt have enough evidence to support, resulting in Gladwell making a hasty generalization. He looks at one canadian hockey team and states all are probably the exact same way.
We will use the scientific method to help guide us. The scientific method starts out with a question. Our question will be How much of an impact does the community have on the future of our youth.
