Südkorea, Singapur: „In South Korea […] it has been estimated that fully 75 percent of all students attend one of the country’s 100,000 hagwons, after-school private cramming schools. The pressure to do well is so intense that some observers blame it for the country’s suicide rate, which is the highest among all OECD countries. The situation is similar in Singapore, where the press has reported that 70 percent of parents of children from preschool though the secondary levels send them to 'tuition classes', many of which are cram schools for the high-stakes tests.“
