Comment from a reader on: A Lesson in EducationSo How do you fix it? The education system here is very poor if you can’t afford to go to good private schools. Classes only three days a week! 4th day reviewing the previous three days 5 day sport. If there is public holiday it always affects the school day rarely the sport day. So most children here despite the best efforts of parents struggling to educate their children find even if they go regularly to school they only get 3/5ths the education of Australian and American children without the myriad of public holidays they celebrate here. Get the Filipina a good education they are as smart as anyone, its the system not the nationality.
