PBS News Hour Spotlights "Education Fever" in South Korea

I already mentioned that the PBS News Hour spent a week focusing on current events surrounding South Korea.  All of the reports they filed were very informative and interesting to watch.

The last report that Margaret Warner filed was about "education fever," in South Korea.  Recently, Obama has publicly praised the achievements of the South Korean public education system, but this report got it right and managed to balance out Korea's educational success and the strain and pressure it puts on the society from being so competitive.  Worth the watch!
