I read some telling statistics recently. The highest percentages of Senior School students reported to be "under stress" were USA (62%), Japan (69%), South Korea (75%) and, at the top (or bottom?) was China (86%). It does seem to be the only thing students think about at this time of year. Recent reports about students in Hubei Province are even more worrying [see photo]. Schools there have set up IV drips in the classroom to ensure the students have "enough energy to study". One wonders what's in the IV bags ...can't be good, can it?
