    Surely tutoring for selective high is cheaper than six years of private school education.

    White are the minority in selective high schools. In quantitative degrees at uni and in CBDs.

    maybe their parents think that their kids should have a proper childhood instead of sending them to tutoring after school ever day after they are 6 years old?

    You're almost saying that if you don't go to a selective school, you have a low iq. You don't have to go to selective to be successful in life and nobody said they're creative, you kept bring that up yourself. I'm not white so i have no idea about their vaues but probably, they reckon don't need it? They don't see the point in going? Idk. Besides not many white people take part in the selective test anyway. What's white flight?
    Just so you know i ain't kissing white ass, i'm just against you saying that asians are the superior race which is utter bs. All races are equal. And I'm asian btw
    Do you agree that iq tests are inaccurate or nah

    I am not Anglo- white, and not asian but I agree with this as well.

    You can't simply say one race is better than another.
    There are intelligent people in every race.

    Re: Testing times: selective schools and tiger parents

    What I would say is that kuromusha isn't completely insane. It's well known that migrants place a greater stress on work ethic as a result of a desire to establish their families in a new nation. As such you can probably say that Asian-Australian families, as a hangover from this migrant mentality, tend to transfer to their children better work ethics. This unfortunately seems to come out in the form of after school tutoring from a very early age, but probably does result in better academic outcomes.

    However, the kind of generalisations kuromusha is making make me very wary that he simply believes the 'asian race' is superior to all other races because of some inherent intellectual quality. This belief is obviously not grounded in reality, but kuromusha has done nothing to allay my fears.

    Re: Testing times: selective schools and tiger parents

    You said Asians are smarter than British/European people.
    Then why are most scientific breakthroughs throughout 1700-2000 from Europe and not Asia?

    Just a thought.
    Not really saying one is better than another.

    If you don't get into selective high school, you don't necessarily have a low iQ, you just don't have high IQ.

    Why are you posting in this thread if you don't bother reading the article. "white flight" is the white people sending their children to expensive private schools because their children failed to get into a selective high.

    And also, what's the point in being smart if you can't be happy? Take a look at international happiness rankings, western countries take majority of the high ranks.

    Maybe they don't have to complete with Asians for a spot in their selective high schools?
