Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior like George Orwell’s teachers were Superior

Read this:Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior – WSJ.com. And then read this: George Orwell: Such, Such Were The Joys. You might be inclined to agree with the first approach to teaching and disagree with the second. (I disagree with both.)

Both of them make me think of Wilde’s quote about cynics: “What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.” People who have these educational approaches know all about the costs/benefits of education, but not the value of it, it seems.
