How does a 3rd grade student attack his teacher? How would that scene go down?

And Obama has continually praised the South Korean system of education.

yet this system seems to encourage passivity among its students.

not the typical korean student. he was probably provoked, but kids these days don't know their place as pupil. especially that region of korea. daegu could perhaps be korea's largest export of ignorant, spoiled kids and plastic surgery disasters.

obama has a point but americans in general do not agree on this point. the korean system's old school, fear-based and it's worked *for them* for millenia. i'm sure we americans aren't all too willing to move out of our current comfort zones.
