The latest stories I've been reading:
i think japanese schools are still more rigorous than american school though. they HAVE to be - kids have to test into high schools still. my students can't believe when i tell them everyone goes to high school in the US (& Canada). a lot of my third years are already preparing for the HS exams in Feb.
angela- True, but some public school districts have testing/selection to see who goes to what schools, not just high schools. You're right that the Japanese system still is more rigorous, but it's good to notice current American trends, eh?
i read in the nytimes about japanese women and the decrease in marriage/increase in age before marriage. and how the women are replacing guymates with dogmates. haha.Post a Comment
