"They're our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." Didn't you say you were a teacher or something? This is why some teachers should be fired. Would you teach your students to distort the facts?

Maybe US teachers should move????? "im Ki-hoon earns $4 million a year in South Korea, where he is known as a rock-star teacher—a combination of words not typically heard in the rest of the world. Mr. Kim has been teaching for over 20 years, all of them in the country's private, after-school tutoring academies, known as hagwons. Unlike most teachers across the globe, he is paid according to the demand for his skills—and he is in high demand.

Kim Ki-Hoon, who teaches in a private after-school academy, earns most of his money from students who watch his lectures online.'The harder I work, the moreImake,' he says.'I like that.'

Mr. Kim works about 60 hours a week teaching English, although he spends only three of those hours giving lectures. His classes are recorded on video, and the Internet has turned them into commodities, available for purchase online at the rate of $4 an hour.

cont. "He spends most of his week responding to students' online requests for help, developing lesson plans and writing accompanying textbooks and workbooks (some 200 to date).

"The harder I work, the more I make," he says matter of factly. "I like that."

I traveled to South Korea to see what a free market for teaching talent looks like—one stop in a global tour to discover what the U.S. can learn from the world's other education superpowers. Thanks in part to such tutoring services, South Korea has dramatically improved its education system over the past several decades and now routinely outperforms the U.S. Sixty years ago, most South Koreans were illiterate; today, South Korean 15-year-olds rank No. 2 in the world in reading, behind Shanghai. The country now has a 93% high-school graduation rate, compared with 77% in the U.S.

cont. "Tutoring services are growing all over the globe, from Ireland to Hong Kong and even in suburban strip malls in California and New Jersey. Sometimes called shadow education systems, they mirror the mainstream system, offering after-hours classes in every subject—for a fee. But nowhere have they achieved the market penetration and sophistication of hagwons in South Korea, where private tutors now outnumber schoolteachers.

Viewed up close, this shadow system is both exciting and troubling. It promotes striving and innovation among students and teachers alike, and it has helped South Korea become an academic superpower. But it also creates a bidding war for education, delivering the best services to the richest families, to say nothing of its psychological toll on students. Under this system, students essentially go to school twice—once during the day and then again at night at the tutoring academies. It is a relentless grind.

The bulk of Mr. Kim's earnings come from the 150,000 kids who watch his lectures online each year.(Most are high-school students looking to boost their scores on South Korea's version of the SAT.) He is a brand name, with all the overhead that such prominence in the market entails. He employs 30 people to help him manage his teaching empire and runs a publishing company to produce his books.

Now, maybe if some US teachers worked as hard as this teacher, this country might have a chance. Of course, it takes great students with the need to learn. But why would a student need to learn when they can get a check like the parents. See, the circle goes round and round, it won't stop until US population is ground into the ground.

Instead of giving the responsibility to other teachers (which I am not), why don't you go into teaching and take advantage of the same opportunity and you change the course of US education?

The hard work actually has to be done by the students. To work as hard as is needed to master difficult subjects, students have to be motivated, value education as an investment in their own future and have some innate talent. Teachers are just the guides and mentors. The South Korean model will not work for US republikans. Republikans are taught to disregard the importance of education, lack motivation and are generally genetically deficient of innate talent.

Half right, I believe that a teacher has to motivate a student. It's hard work for everyone, I had a 7th grade teacher that to this day I think of her. Plainly, she made learning fun. I looked forward to going to her class, on the other hand, I had a teacher that I knew, could care less if I was breathing air. The US gov. has made it easier to get something for nothing. It's the new model. You say Republicans are money driven, can't be stupid and make money. Finance, law, medical, even politics requires a little smarts. Social programs promote "getting something for nothing".

Ask the parents of the FOUR dead how it stacks up. Because of the security implements put in place after 9/11 the country is on alert today. Thank you Republicans for making the choice to make it safer for me.
