That's why China become so great in a very short period of time. Was it about only 30 years of open up policy, wasn't it? China produced the most Scientist in the world. 30% of doctorate graduat in America are of Chinese. A little presure will hurt a few but propelle millions. Whay to go China!!

Yep

But it's not just the lack of pressure on our students. It's how the US educational system is set up. I'm sure you are aware of "No Child Left Behind", it drains resources from students who work hard and actually make something of themselves and gives those resources to retarded and lazy kids.

I believe a "King of the Hill" episode explained the problem with "No Child Left Behind" very well.

Also, I believe that we need to cut our funding to art classes and other crap and devote more of it to mathmatics and physical education.

I've been listening to people cry for more science and math since 1960 and the post Sputnik reforms. I have never heard anyone claim that PE was the key to learning. PE is just organized games and no education of any kind, it is nothing but jockism tricked out as a school subject. Kids would be much better off reading poetry.

More to the point, China, simply because of the numbers, has more honor students that America has students. American schools ask little and get less out of children who are told every day on television that they are cuter and smarter than their parents and teachers.

US kids are mainly obsessed with sex. Learning is not a big priority.

US kids are lazy and stupid because they have spent their life watching television. They all too frequently grow up to be lazy stupid and violent people and the prison cells await them. Just remember, kid, the government will spend some money trying to get you to learn a thing or two, but if you will not learn the government is perfectly willing to lock you up. Welcome to the land of liberty, kid. Now wise up, turn off the TV and read some books.

Classroom horror as Chinese pupil kills teacher for confiscating his mobile by slitting his throat

Sun Wakang discovered one of his students playing on his phone in class
The student revenged the confiscation by slitting the teacher's throat
Chemistry teacher Mr Sun died by his desk before ambulance arrived

Murdered: Teacher Sun Wukang was killed by one of his students after taking the youngster's phone
A Chinese student slit his teacher’s throat in an act of revenge after his mobile phone was confiscated.

The student, named only as Lei in local news reports, had been discovered playing with his phone by his teacher Sun Wakang during a chemistry lesson at a school in in Fuzhou, eastern China's Jiangxi province.
The following day Lei went to Mr Sun’s classroom where the teacher was sat marking papers, and slit his throat from behind.
The 32-year-old father-of-one died at the scene as the student fled.
Today young Lei called the local emergency number and confessed to the crime before turning himself in to police in Shanghai.
Mr Sun had worked as a chemistry teacher at Linchuan No. 2 Middle School for five years before his brutal murder, school official Xiong Haishui told China.org .cn.
He had taken the student’s mobile phone after the young boy had used it during a lesson, but it had been returned at the end of the day.
Despite this, Lei attacked Mr Sun as he was preparing lessons in his classroom, just four days after China’s Teacher’s Day – a national day where students honour their teachers.
Officials say a fellow teacher heard Mr Sun’s scream and called emergency serviced, but the 32-year-old was dead before an ambulance arrived.
