A New Learning Day

Wonderful. Welcome the hagwan experience to America.

A “hogwan” in a private institute in Korea. There are hogwans for just about everything you can think of including, language, math, science, and other academic programs. There are also more hobby-centric hogwans for things such as cooking and art.

The academic hogwans take up the slack for the public schools. With the all-important college entrance exam in their sights, Korean students (and parents) put in long hours at these institutes. While the necessity isn’t contested very much, Koreas still truly resent the necessity.

Now I guess it’s our turn in the states. It’s not that a question the necessity, it’s that I resent the necessity šŸ™
