I will make the conclusion so we can move on to the next topic because since EC is here I get the feeling this will just go in circles, with pie chart, random data from Tajikistan and the likes.
Tutoring in HK is great, works well, kids are under no special pressure at school and from parents and top student in top school do tutoring because they ask their parents for it as they want to better themselves.
@merchantms - now you got your answer.
Sorry if you thought other systems might work better. HK one is one of the best (the best?) so count yourself lucky to bring yup our kids here and don't whine about paying 200K of Int school and add half of that or a quarter of that for tutoring. That's the way it is, it works well and kids are happy and well rounded (@hk_katherine, remember that when you whine about not being able to hire local kids from top school or sthg. You are wrong.)
