Money can't buy you educational results

No matter how much money is spent on education, it is all wasted if it is not accompanied with good discipline and the removal of teachers who are unable to teach.

If Gordon Brown is worried about the future challenges from India and China, should he consider copying how India and China and teach their children?

Modern education in India is often criticized for being based on rote learning. Emphasis is laid on passing exams with high percentage. Few institutes give importance to developing personality and creativity among students. [] Some schools in India practice extreme forms of corporal punishment on children, particularly those in middle school.

The People's Republic of China has a system of 9-year-compulsory education in mainland China.
