ok, get this, i currently work in a kindergarten in China and i shit you not the principal sent this video to our work wechat telling us that we need to work harder because our kids cant do anything remotely like that.
it was fucking insane. she went on a rampage telling us we had the drill the kids on these skills day in day out, until she forgot and moved onto the next thing.
the thing about chinese kindergartens is that it is ALL theatre. these videos are created tp impress parents to retain parents and gain new suckers. Can you fucking imagine how many teaching hours thet wasted learning that lil trick? how much reading, writing and speaking you could do in what was surely a hundred hours of training? for what? so you can suck the joy out of physical education? so you can teach the kids that exercise is drudgery? my fucking god. it infuriates me when people defend china as this bastion of socialism when ive never seen such wildly authoritarian capitalism
