The Asian Advantage

I read The Asian Advantage on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times this morning by Nicholas Kristof. He writes that Asian immigrants (Chinese and Korean) do well economically in America because the families value education and hard work and have a low divorce rate.

I see that work ethic and the value families place on education here at the Osaka International School. It is nice personally, to be in a valued profession in Japan and for my children to be in an environment where working hard and sacrificing for the sake of a good education is the norm. There is lot to unpack here and this article can be a start to a conversation.
