I tend to believe that the problem (if there is one) tends to be a lack of extracurricular activities. Also, the whole lack of the "lemonade stand" mentality.

In parts of the US and Europe, young teenagers have an oppurtunity to learn entrapeneurship (spelling).

Also, I believe, that as a rule the teaching/learning of personal responsibility as it relates to an individual and society prepares the youth to not only learn, but *use* what they learn....

Great blog by the way. Big fan of yours and look forward to hearing you next time you decide to go back on stage.

Cheers

You only half-answered the question you started out with, "how I want my children educated". Any thoughts on the early years?

@ Micah - You're right, I only half answered it. Right now I'm leaning toward sending them to the foreign-student program at a reputable Chinese school like Fangcaodi Elementary in Beijing, where there's bilingual education and quite westernized teaching, I'm told. My daughter will finish out the year we've already paid for at the preschool she now attends--I'm not thrilled with it, and neither is she--and then start at one of Beijing's better Montessori schools until Kindergarten. Little Johnny's doing Gymboree right now, but when he's 2 or 2-and-a-half we'll probably send him to a Montessori as well.

Thanks, that's exactly the kind of perspective I was hoping to get. I'm getting an early start relative to my pack of friends down here in Shanghai and I'm getting nervous about trailbreaking here. I'm leaning towards similar paths: either schools attached to universities, or some of the newer private schools (international or not) with interesting ideas and deep-pocketed investors, like 西外外国语学校. Luckily my wife Jodi is in the preschool business, so she'll be able to keep an eye over the little one when that time comes.

You must be imaginative,   strong hearted. You must try things that may not work. And you must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from.

Education is a very important issue, more and more we are been seeing that many kids leave schools for many reasons, something should be done to prevent more kids leaving schools.
