What do most Taiwanese kids do after school? Go to school. Cram schools, as they are known, are big business here. Here kids, even kids at the top of the class, will receive extra tutoring in math, English, and other subjects from private tutors. It’s common for kids to start in first grade, and by elementary school start coming home around 10 pm. The Taiwanese very much believe that education is the key to a better future.
