Re: Obama urges longer school hours

Here in Asia, things are highly competitive leading to a mentality of "survivor of the fittest", and lots of stressed out, unhappy and suicidal people -- ok that's an exaggeration. :P

Here, unskilled worker are paid peanuts due to a much lower minimum wage. Thus w/o education, you'll have a higher chance of being doomed to poverty; that is unless you're resourceful, smart and driven enough to succeed.

Shinobi, yes I do see your arguments but what do you reckon? That America create less college so that student have to fight for places? And then lower minimum wage so that people would work harder to ensure a stable and more secure future?
