Don’t Hit MEwhat’s happenin in korea
You want to know what’s happening? Korea’s education system is literally the most rotten piece of shit to ever exist.
Let me explain the context of the poster on the left.
The average time a kid spends in school in the US is 900 to 1000 hours per year, spread between 175-180 days (x)
In 2007 there were mass student protests in Netherlands because they increased the hours spent in school to 1040 hours per year, or 8 hours a day, 130 days a year. (x)
Korean high schools, on the other hand, enact a 3150 policy, 225 days of school with 14 hours a day, or from 8 am to 10 pm (x)
Also due to the private education sector of hagwons and the fierce competition of Korean high schools, basically after school kids go to hagwons, or personal academies, till 2, 3 in the morning, fit in maybe 4, 5 hours of sleep and go back to school. (x)
It was only in 2012 that schools went from having classes on Saturday excluding the first and third Saturday, and it was only in 2007 when they changed from having class every Saturday. (x)
This system is literally the epitome of the factory schooling system which comes as a result of a capitalistic schooling system and it works kids too hard which is one of the reasons Korean school kids are some of the unhappiest of pretty much any OECD country. (x)
For the photo on the right, physical punishment is not fully banned in Korea.
Since 2011, Seoul, Gyunggido, Gangwondo, and Julla Bukdo have banned the use of direct physical punishment, or basically hitting kids with either tools or physically with their body. That being said that’s basically only about half of South Korea.
Also, indirect physical punishment such as making kids to planks, make them kneel with their hands up, making them run laps, or of the sort is still fully acceptable in all Korean schools. (x)
Anybody who’s a Korean in a Korean school right now already has experience with getting beat by a teacher and some kids still have to deal with physical punishment by teachers.
My experience in Taiwan was nearly not as bad as it was in Korea, but we did have school from 7 am to around 4. However, after that, since it was in Taiwan, and Asian people are highly competitive, usually students would have to go to tutoring after that usually until at least 8, which by the time you get home its about 8:30 and you still have to shower and everything, plus you still had school work to do, which was like a lot trust me.
The homeroom teacher would check the homework for all the classes in the morning, so you couldn’t finish it in other classes, and if you didn’t finish the homework, you would have to go stand outside the teacher’s offices and complete it during break time which was about 10-15 minutes, which was not a lot of time since the teacher’s offices were also on the top floor (4) so you had to walk up there and walk back down with hw completed within 15 minutes.
Also, if you did not finish the homework, the teacher would ask you to go to the front of the classroom and like pinch and twist your ear which is seriously not as bad as Korea since I think beating students is against the law there (I’m not entirely sure though). But one time our teacher actually made a guy’s ear bleed and he had to go to the nurse’s office.
School there was very tiring, we had 8 classes everyday, but we also had a half hour nap time after lunch. Test wise, you can probably expect at least 3 quizzes a day and maybe one big test or more because of the 8 classes that you had each day. What’s also different there than in US schools was that there was not janitor’s so basically each student was assigned a cleaning duty and the students would have to clean the classroom, and whichever classroom was nearest to the bathroom would also have to clean the bathroom (but our teacher gave that duty to the worser students so I never had to do it thank god). This happened twice everyday once before school and once after. That was basically my experience there as a middle schooler (7th grade).
why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain
no one tell him
