How are students educated in schools in YOUR country, where you came from?
If every student is put through the same program, go to the same lessons and lectures every single day, and have the exact same curriculum, I would say that schools are just a photocopying machine. This is why schools kill creativity and kill individuality. Whatever happened to developing our own interests and dwelling into our own passion? Do we have the time to do that? In my country, students reach the school at 7am and leave the school at 7pm, with homework, assignments, and projects to complete. This is the fatal flaw of our schooling system nowadays. Creativity is completely killed off. So is individuality. After all, we are just copies of one another. This is where schools have to change and get rid of route learning. Focus on developing creativity, developing passion. For a start, let students get a hobby, find something their interested in and find something they are good at. Right now, students don't have all these.

Hey Judy, I'm from Singapore. So the culture here is pretty much similar to that of South Korea. I think it's the culture here in Asia. Here in Singapore, it's really 'teaching to the test'. Students are flooded with information and students basically just cram their heads memorizing all these information in order to ace their tests. Here in Singapore, results mean everything. I think that many fail to realize the purpose of education. Why do we go to school? What is our purpose? What drives us? What is our motivation? Many students here in Singapore can be coined as 'lifeless mushrooms'. They are like robots, basically, taking in heaps of information and spewing them out in tests. They do not know why they are doing so.In fact, many people in my school do not even have an ambition, or a dream. The education system here in Singapore does not give up the space we need to develop ourselves holistically, it does not give us the chance to explore our interests and dwell in our passion. It gives us very little space for individuality and uniqueness. Schools here kill creativity and kill individuality. This is why Asia does not produce any "Steve Jobs or Bill Gates". We concentrate too much on route learning but we miss out on the soft skills, creativity and thinking. Instead, we should have more of experiential learning and have the chance to explore outside the classroom. There is so much more to learn outside the classroom, there is so much more knowledge outside to gain. We should have classes outside the classroom. We should be given the chance to explore, discover and develop, because it's these things that stick with us for a long time, not the cramming of information into our brains. We should get away from 'teaching to the test' and aim more towards 'teaching to learn'. Education does not equal to academics, and what we lack now is a good education system.
