Oh, yeah…entrance exams. My son is off to take his for junior high school this morning. What a barrell of monkeys that is. Irresponsible, unfair, and completely out of control this entire industry is. There are plenty of folks who profit from the system and who have a stake in keeping the system going as it is. The average person either doesn’t know enough about how testing and education work to ask questions, so they either do nothing to build their children’s self esteem, or they send their kids to cram schools in hopes that it will make their kids more competitive, which also, by the way, does nothing for their self esteem. It just raises the stakes.
