Pretty new perspectives about education and teachi [Rating: 9/10]
Well, I never expected this school drama would go so deep into the reality about education and hierachy system in the society. Just like others, I expected another replica of variety show like setting and a pleasing ending to make everybody happy. That's why it's such a great surprise to see Abe tortured the students recklessly.
I used to be kinda optimist, probably influenced by GTO, teacher should always comfort the students and compliment them. But it is proven to be just as extreme as purely discipline and punishment. Especially when students are in higher grades, it is a must to let them taste the real life other than isolating them with just beautiful dreams and ideology. We still have to face the reality some day, no matter how great our dreams are.
That's why I appreciate nearly all Abe said in the drama, especially this one:
"THE BEST TEACHER SHOULD PROVIDE LEAST SUPPORT AND LET HIS (HER) STUDENTS TO LEARN ABOUT SELF-RELIANCE!"
