So, who’s taking care of the kids that aren’t leading the class? Who’s taking care of the average students and the struggling ones? The ones that aren’t academically inclined?
I understand how elitist their education system is. The reality of things is that not one school or two can change it. In such an insanely competitive system, it’s better to try your best to have an edge. The school trying to help the ‘1%’ kids is (because they are putting in a lot of effort) the way it can be but there’s just too much focus on them. Not everyone’s brain is wired to ‘cram’ and ‘memorize’. So, who has got the back of the kids in 99%?

    I’m only following the recaps but the drama doesn’t seem interested in answering your question so far. I was hoping to read about the effects of all this on that 99%. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the drama seems very focused on power politics and admin wars, not really on the students who are on the receiving end of all this.

      I’m hoping next week’s episodes will touch these 99% because in the latest episode, there was some opposition against the clear favoritism of the 1%.

    The rest 99% will be way better than the top 1% from such a system, because in the university most of the 1% just fail… because higher education is not about clearing exams by rote learning… I hate that there is actually no focus on them understanding the subject actually. In the end it is us University teachers who have to deal with them and make them unlearn. We have to teach them how to think and reason, i just wished they are taught this from school…

      I can attest to this. My country’s education system, too, is built on memorizing rather than applying your knowledge. It’s just not as competitive. I struggled when I got into uni because I had to unlearn how to memorize and learn to understand and apply.
