    I think that's just cruel to expect young children to sit still and study all day without a recess break. That's where children learn to interact and (at least back in my day) get some serious exercise running and playing games with each other.

    Truly barbaric. I wish there was some way to bring this to light and form a protest against it. Of course, the core problem is producing robots to pass standardized tests which seems to be accepted wisdom for the entire education system now.
