Late Night Teaching
After school programs have been around in Korea for decades as institutions of learning supplementing and sometimes replacing regular schooling programs. They are, arguably, one aspect of the educational culture which allows Korea to boast a 93% high school graduation rate. Unfortunately the other side of the coin includes the hugely public student suicides that are shown on televisions at the end of the school year.
To curb over-studying, the Korean government has essentially cracked down on late night studying by forcing after-school programs to close by 10 pm. With the latest crackdowns on studying, who knows what children will do at night without porn and video games to save them.
