Studying for the Test…with an IV?


If this NYT article is correct than maybe the next generation of students in China (and hopefully India) will go through a less demeaning and stultifying educational experience (being hooked to IV’s in order to study extra hard is a priceless image of a scary future – Matrix anyone?).

Nothing beats the old practice of honing the full individual through a combination of academics and athletics. To borrow from the Japanese and our ancient Greek heritage, the “sword and the pen” make the individual (emphasis on the individual and his or her dreams).
