    Sad that children are so eager to play over studying. To be sure it isn’t that way in Finland and Japan. Play has its place, just not at the expense of learning.

    And vice versa. Remember the Tiger Mom who wrote that book?

    Ha, even I could’ve shimmed that. The teacher missed an opportunity to teach her a valuable lesson: How to shim.

    Considering that Japan has a word that specifically means “death from overwork” (Karōshi), that sort of “work ethic” isn’t necessarily something to admire.

    I don’t know about Finland though…

    I’d feel a lot better about schools if so much wasn’t make-work. It’s a cliche, but teachers at my high school really did act like they were the only ones assigning homework. And so we did a triage approach, doing what was most important.

    Nabuquduriuzhur, Teachers like that don’t exist much any more. Now they work in teams and coordinate assignments so that doesn’t happen…

    Really? That’s great to hear. I had the same experience in my high school as Nabuquduriuzhur described. Was stressed most nights from way too much homework.
