    BTW, here is an excellent WaPo article about the more substantive differences between the US and say, Finland and South Korea.

    Full story can be found here http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...ns-in-education/2011/03/22/ABkNeaCB_blog.html

    Doesn't Korea have some of the best performing students? According to that list Korea spends relatively little.
