Homework torture

Today on my way home from yoga class I stopped into our local back alley DVD store. The owner was sitting with her daughter – who is only 1 or 2 years older than Max – drilling mathematics. The little girl – still in her school uniform- yawned as she dutifully recited the answers.

It was 945 pm.

Anyone who reads this blog knows there is much in the Chinese school system I admire. But, surely, this is ridiculous?
