it's interesting to hear my Japanese sis-in-law talk about school back in Japan.

school on weekends.

janitorial duty for the students.

brutal entrance exams.


I would NOT want that for my kids.

I'm not even sure I want them getting in to this intense college prep game.

my objective is to get them focused on robot-proof gigs in growth industries,
state universities, and a big focus on internships.

I managed to enjoy my youth sufficiently AND get on a solid career track via
tech. the local schools are actually taking a pretty strong stand against excessive
take-home work which I appreciate if not only because they can still enjoy
their extracurriculars.


It’s like the GZA coming on after U-God

Home work is stupid.

If you are training hard all day you should be able to come home and rest.

The Asians are all hard core discipline but they want to come to the US?

Why?


incompetence is preferable to malice.

My kids all made their own choices and have gone on to forge their own relationship with the world. Which I think is entirely appropriate. A couple of them are doing the 60+ hour work weeks but that's by their own hand, not because anyone pushed them into it. The extent of my pushing was basically limited to prompting them to assume the responsibility - and the credit - for the choices they make. If any of them have ever had any ideas about blaming their outcome on external factors beyond their control then they're at least smart enough to keep those rationales away from me because I'm not hearing it.

I didn't build that - they did. I wouldn't have it any other way.
