Good article on New York Times that proves two of the Korean's deeply held beliefs:
1. Despite its numerous flaws, Korean educational system does at least some things right. -- The Korean himself was a poor student at math and science in Korea, but once moved to U.S., he was destroying the curriculum. Californian 12th graders learn 8th grade Korean math. It's a crying shame.
2. Immigration is a vital source of strength of the U.S., and it must be encouraged -- So what if America sucks at math? Import more Asians!
