I don't know anything about the curriculum, but it's important to realise that cultural attitudes have a great influence on the performance of Asian children in school. When I lived in China, my boys' Chinese friends were only available to play after 8pm on Friday and Saturday nights. At all other times they were either in school, doing homework, or going to extra tutorial sessions. Yes, every weekday evening, all day Saturday and all day Sunday. Competition for university places was extreme and pressure on the one child of two parents, only grandchild of four grandparents, was intense.
