Take this guy’s word for it…it sucks!
Update 18th July, 2011:
It’s summer holidays all around Hong Kong right now…but you wouldn’t know it. Thousands and thousands of students and teachers are participating merrily in summer catch up classes, remedial lessons and school activities. And they’ll be doing that all July and all August, so I am told. It’s a sad state of affairs when holidays have finally come…after a year, I’m sure, of schools ratcheting up the pressure, whipping up the stress, mythologizing the stakes and pushing kids to the limit…to know that as far as the eye can see, all through the holidays…students will be scurrying around in full school uniform petrified by the fear of failure, trying to gain that extra .0005% advantage that will secure them a slightly better customer service job than the next student.
