I read an interesting articleひらめき on Nikkei Newspaper, Japan's
Wall Street Journal.

This proves my point of doing easy problems over and over

(I have other proofs, but today I'll just present this.)

The article is written by a Japanese famous college professor
and school teacher, Kageyama Hideo, who has been struggling
to improve educational levels of Japanese children.

Mr. Kageyama was an elementary school teacher for a long
time, but now is a professor at Ritsumeikan University.

(His name is Mr. Kageyama, but he has no relations to
the late Kageyama Toshiro professional, a famous author
of "The Fundamentals of Go"

In case you don't know the book, I put the link on the left
column from the top of the 6 rows to the 10 rows.)

In Japan a number of children who lack basic education
are increasing dramatically for many years, especially
for the past 10 years.

They lack basic math, basic Japanese language skills such as kanji (Chinese characters), other basic subject matters.

Japan's educational system has been collapsing.ちっ(怒った顔)

(I was one of them... I never went to high school...)もうやだ〜(悲しい顔)

Now the Japanese children have been showing one of the lowest
scores among the western or industrialized countries
in average for many years.

(There are always extremely brilliant kids in Japan.
But I'm talking about the average scores.)

When Mr. Kageyama was a teacher in elementary school, he was
often extremely busy.

In Japan we have much fewer teachers than most western
schools.ふらふら So teachers get busy easily.

(I didn't know this fact until recently.)

Despite the difficult situation, Mr. Kageyama was
doing really well, making his children
improving their average math scores.

How did he do that?

He gave the children very easy math problems for many months.

One day it was one of the busiest times of the year, and
he didn't have time to make math problems at all.

Regretfully, he just made a lot of copies
from old math problems, thinking that "this lazy way
will not give my students improve their math..."

He felt guilty, but he had no choice, but kept giving his children those math problems for a while.

To his surprise, the average math scores of his
class made a quantum leap in a very short period
of time.
