    I must admit I am surprised. I long ago learned that in China and Taiway, kids spend more hours per day in school than here in the USA. They take classes all day long, have time to eat dinner and have more class time.

    Saturday is a school day.

    Check out Japan

    And their suicide rate is much higher than our combined murder/suicide rate, and there society is so dysfunctional, that a rising group of men are claiming to be asexual. I'll take mediocre education any day over a pressure cooker society like that.
