Quote Of The Day

“I’m probably a little insensitive about this after my experience teaching in Taiwan and South Korea. After being told by parents to beat their kids if they don’t study; hear from parents who stay up drinking coffee so they can sit with their kids while they do their homework; talk to kids who are seniors in high school and will tell you that their only job in life is to get good grades; hear from folks (meaning, parents, friends, relatives) who tell their kids: sleep four hours, you pass, sleep five hours you fail; talk to parents who allocate a large percentage of the income on making sure the kid gets a good education, then, yeah, it is tough to be sensitive to educators and researchers who think there is a short-cut to kids getting a quality education”. —Casey Lartigue, former education-policy analyst with the Cato Institute
