As someone who worked among the Korean education system for several years, I am
100% confident that I do not want such a system in my schools. While Koreans do
have high test scores, their education is also extremely expensive and
selective. Some parents will give 1/3 of their income each month just to after
school tutoring. This is commonplace in fact. All but the destitute pay life
limb and body for the education of their children. When was the last Nobel prize
in the sciences or Fields medal to come out of Korea....? ......(and. It has
never happened) Also, in Korea, keep in mind that by high school kids are
locked into a life path. If you were considered smart early on in your career,
you go to math and science high school. Otherwise, you go to an arts or social
science route. Only the top kids take the standardized tests.is this really what
we want in America?
Want to fix education? Simple!Remove the restraints!If
educators could only figure out what those restraints are.
