Since I didn't do a Monday Quote-tastic post this week, I thought I'd do this instead. I'm reading The Smartest Kids in the World And How They Got That Way by Amanda Ripley. For my new readers, I'm a teacher, so when I read about this book, I knew I had to read it.

The kids who had received demerits-for misbehaving or letting their hair grow too long-had to wear red pinnies and clean the bathrooms. Work, including the unpleasant kind, was at the center of Korean school culture, and no one was exempt.
