This is the asian century whether we like it or not, there will be plenty of setbacks just like in the America, just like in the UK. I want to prepare my children for the 21st century. I want to give them any legs up I can. Its not going to make them successful because they know Asia or know Mandarin, but it will give them a few advantages.
The Asian nations come out in top on all national educations in International tests. United States is not even in the top 20, so I wanted them [my daughters] to have demanding, rigorous advanced education. I got to tell you its unbelievable how demanding, rigorous, advanced education. Its much more than I expected, my daughters have more homework in 2 or 3 years, than I have had in 12 in the US. I see what they are doing. I can see why the Asians come out of top in tests. She is certainly a learning work ethic if nothing else.
