    Hey im a 16 year old from India. I feel that comparing asia with west is irrational. Countries like India and China have huge populations and less land hence the competition ia alot, dont know about other countries but a typical student aspiring to score A in high school here has to study 2~3 hrs every day along with 6 hrs of school. The pressure is moderate, the simple reason that countries in asia focus on more tests so as to provide poor children living in villages equal opportunities of getting into a college, I feel there’s nothing wrong in this. feel free to comment and discuss

    The definitions of `educating' , education', `educator', etc. are too fragmented to be meaningful, it seems to me, and seem beside the point, anyway. What everyone wants is `learning'. `Teachers' and `educators' are supposed to promote learning, but not so many do that. Far more likely to work, it seems to me, is to show people and young people `what there is to learn'. Give them the opportunity and means to `explore' subjects to the `depth' they want, and when a match is found, the job of the system is mostly done. To me, the secret is having `environments to learn', where students can find what they want to learn, and then have the resources to learn at the rate they want to learn. Nothing should prevent any person or young person from learning more than one subject at a time, and/or at different rates.

    Me, South Korean in 2016: Senior(Gosam in Korean), Sleep 6 hours/day(pretty much in korea actually), Spend 16 hours(7~23) in school if not weekend, spend 10 hours in private institute(Hakwon; not accurate word I found) if weekend, repeated this everyday every week! Best education if you wanna make clockwork machine instead of human.

    It is very surprising not to see Germany mentioned, as the general culture which the educational system gives students is both very thorough and intelligent. The Humanities are given full respect as they should, since Germany understands that whether for the sciences or literature, anthropology and the likes, we need to be generally well rounded and reflective, as opposed to being a trained parrot who performs little practical tasks without any deeper understanding of the world. By the way, I am not German

    If you notice the countries with the best education system resides in countries where there are little to no Spics, Muslims, or Jiggaboos.

    Singapore's education system is not what many people think it is. It does not produce students who truly think. It only teaches students to get around the systems used for testing their so called intelligence and competencies. That's why you don't see many great figures coming out of our tiny little nation. Our education teaches us to be crafty, not smart, and somehow, at the same time, blindly obedient and submissive to all those above us. We don't question authority. We only stick to what we are taught and rarely ever adapt and improvise when what we are taught doesn't work. You think this kind of people are really smart and can solve real problem? No.

    Not to start a war but I don't understand why so many people in the comment section keeps saying how bad the education system is... I mean when Asian countries overtake western countries in something, westerners will quickly denounce them. I mean everything has its pros and cons after all.

    I studied 1 year of middle school in Taiwan. I left home at 7am(which is quite late compares to some of my classmates) and went back usually around 9pm. 10pm in exam season. I spent less than an hour with my parents every day. One of the student in the high school department eventually committed suicide. It was pathetic.

  • Gladys Chong

    I live in Singapore and our education system isn't that great. Firstly, there is a social hierarchy because 12 year olds are sorted into different schools with different levels of prestige based on their PSLE scores. In Singapore, the content that is usually taught in secondary school/high school is taught in primary school/elementary school. Students are pressured into learning difficult content by their teachers and parents. I am in secondary school and most students (including myself) are regularly sleep-deprived and stressed.

    I live in the Netherlands and even though i see a decline in our overall grades, students at least have a life and can do fun stuff. We only have a maximum of 7 hours of school a day (normally 5 hours) and then maybe 1 hour of homework( if you decide to make it 😋) so i rather be the 9th on this list than have all the pressure of the east asian countries on you and not enjoy your youth as much. I really hope east asian countries will stop pressuring their students so much 🙏🏼

    In the USA, many school systems hire younger teachers, "the Millennials aka Generation Y" from programs like America’s Choice, or Teach for America, or some other groups and develop a reciprocal partnership to get a financial, federal kick-back in funds. Why keep an experienced senior teacher making more money when they can hire an inexperienced young teacher and pay that person much less? Unfortunately, money is more important to them than cultivated education. So aside from 14th amendment violations practiced by some preferential principals, money is another motive for firing tenured senior teachers. If these senior teachers do not retire, or resign then, they are issued unsatisfactory evaluations, or their working environment is made uncomfortable. . . In other countries, experienced, senior teachers are greatly valued and respected for their knowledge. Perhaps that is the reason that “U.S. students’ academic achievement still lags that of their peers in many other countries.” www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/02/15/u-s-students-internationally-math-science/

    1) This video is based on a 'PISA' scores.
    2) Asians tries harder than any other countries in terms of academics. However, it does not mean they are born with smarter brains.
    3) Asians wants to study in countries like U.S and Canada. Yes because it is much easier, it is less stressful, it's got less competitions, which mean more opportunity to get into better universities.
    4) Top ranked universities, for example Harvard, is in U.S. Yes, but the fact that Harvard university is located in the states, does not mean they only have Americans. There are lots of intellegent international students in Harvard.
