@Wongie - I don't like racial stereotyping, but the strong impression I get is that the children of asian/Chinese ethnic minorities in UK and Ireland DO work harder and are actively encouraged to do so by parents. A lot of underachievement in education is not entirely the child's fault but is down to poor parenting. Who teaches the parents?

@pedned No worries Jamie, you're light years off from being the worst. You must have seen the woeful drivel I referred to, there's plenty of it on the web. And the Daily Mail is grammatically sound enough, even though it's far away from the right political colour for me. Tits and Tiaras ain't my thing. The fact that you instigated this thread indicates you're more literately inclined than many of your age group.

Although that is true for a number of cases, my parents are quite literally the opposite, let alone I do also think both of my parents are knob'eads. They never went to school either! For South Korea, they're #1 in education worldwide. Hong Kong (unlike mainland China) are slightly okay.

@ pedned - Guardian reader??? Yeah, OK , guilty as charged yer honour!!! It's a fair cop Very Happy

I feel sorry at the end of the day forthose whose reading ability is below standard. They can never know the enlightenment and enrichment of those who do manage to read the great works of the best authors. Or some of the critically acclaimed work that sometimes happens to be crap. Mr Rushdie, pay attention.
