This is a topic that has been coming up quite a lol amongst my family/friends/colleagues.
It seems like lots of parents are sending their primary school age kids to tutoring aka coaching. I know about some cases where kids start as young as kindergarten. Because it's getting so common now, some parents are feeling the pressure to send their kids so they don't fall behind or are "disadvantaged" because everyone else around them are sending their kids.
From what i have heard this coaching is usually a classroom full of kids and they are taught subjects beyond their current school curriculum so they can "be ahead".
Other reasons parents send their kids is in hopes they will perform well in the test for OC class (opportunity class in public school) or selective school tests.
Tutoring can be up to 3 h on the weekend and then there is also additional homework given.
Anyway not after advice, just wondering what are your thoughts on this?
