It is not uncommon for students in China to begin their school day at 7:30 a.m. and not end until 9:30 p.m. That is in stark contrast to the comparatively lazy students in the U.S. where school begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. If we could implement the Chinese style school hours, think how much more training we could get our students through. They would be better prepared to enter the workforce and more competent. And they would already be used to the long hours needed for a corporate job. I like my employees to work a minimum of 12 hours a day. I find that is the minimum for a satisfactory amount of work to be done. I'd require even more if the lazy sloths didn't have silly things like bathroom breaks, food needs, and families to tend to. But if the 14 hour school day became standard, it would be easier for us bosses to ramp up the work hours.
