♦ TIME article on tuition in Korea →

I’ve heard this before in MOE:

> When Singapore’s Education Minister was asked last year about his nation’s reliance on private tutoring, he found one reason for hope: “We’re not as bad as the Koreans.”

But I had no idea it was this bad:

> On a wet Wednesday evening in Seoul, six government employees gather at the office to prepare for a late-night patrol. The mission is as simple as it is counterintuitive: to find children who are studying after 10 p.m. And stop them.

Fascinating, and more than a little depressing.
