Parent describes 'pressure-cooker' at site of Colorado school shooting

One of the first things she noticed was that her child, and other students at STEM School Highlands Ranch, weren't getting enough sleep. The academic workload, she said, seemed crushing. The parent noticed kids stressing out, and lashing out. She said she heard reports of violence, sexual assault and bullying. Yet school officials, she said, seemed to be ignoring the mounting problems.
