I guess the economic anemia put an end to forcing our babies to spend all day in kindergarten. I'm glad our five year olds can now persue their childhood.

They don't have the education problems in Japan we have here . Parents (both) for starters see to it their children attend . They teach respect ,teachers and students clean the rooms before they leave the school . That's just for starters ,it gets better if you can find it . They do everything in school our teachers , unions and administrators would never attempt . Oh, they have a childhood but don't want our kids trying to go to school over there. Their work ethic proves the discipline of why theirs is expanding and ours is becoming a 4th world export business.

economic anemia ? Pay , Pensions , unions and taxes cause their own collapse.
