What is the Deal with Student Suicide?

A recent USA Today article[1] indicated that an estimated 4000 high school students commit suicide each year after posting disappointing scores on their final exams. Some die by hanging themselves, others by lighting themselves on fire.

How could a national tragedy of such proportions, more dead than in the attacks of September 11, not be more widely reported by the media?

The students taking their lives are not in the United States. They are in India.
