Educational Meat Grinder

Interesting Metafilter post on a Korean high school student who made a documentary about her college entrance exams (the Korean version of the SAT, albeit a much bigger deal in this hyper-competitive society).

I have very little to add other than the suggestion that a society composed of gifted test-takers who happen to be completely burned out on education in all of its varied forms is kind of a bad thing.  It literally looks good on paper, but that’s about it.
