Response to Pterodactyl (Reply #61)

73. Ah yes, test scores

I teach in China and taught in Korea before where the focus is the test. Students spend 12 hours a day preparing for the Gaokao and not learning. They sleep through class and only care about tested subjects.

Violence: Where are the parents to teach their little princelings and princesses right from wrong? Parents have tied the hands of schools that there can be no effective discipline. Again, schools have all the responsibility of being the parent and none of the rights.

Not focused on College prep. Shouldn't you, as the parent, work with the school to insure this is happening?

Nihilistic parents! Again, you're the reason education is now a race to the bottom.
