Is Korean Education Good?
Here in Korea, almost every student gets private education. Starting from preschool, they are sent to private academies. Many children go to these academies everyday, where they study and bring back large amounts of homework. The academies start as soon as the school ends and end at 10~11 pm. Every month, about $1000 is spent on a child's private education.
Students do not have time to get enough exercise because of all the homework and schoolwork. Even in P.E, we learn about sports and how to play sports with our textbook, but we never really get to play them. Of course, we learn a lot from this kind of education. I know a preschooler who is already studying middle school math by private tutoring. However, I want to know- IS THIS REALLY HELPFUL, IS THIS BENEFICIAL?
