Kids these days are studying less across the board. The 1990 survey found that students at second-tier schools studied 112.1 minutes at home on average, almost as long as their elite school counterparts, “as they wanted to catch up with and overtake the top students,” Mimizuka said. “But now they do not have to study so hard because they can easily go on to college.”
Taí um número que preocupa a sociedade japonesa: só 112.1 minutos em média. Qualquer ministério da educação deveria medir isto. Alguém sabe do caso brasileiro?
