Korea Trains Children
Just like many teenagers who participate in driver's training in the U.S., the training involves hands-on experience, which allows children to immerse themselves in the conditions that elderly people endure. The program directs children to do every day tasks; however, the tasks need to be done while the children wear items such as leg splits and fogged glasses.
The scene appears similar to the classes which attempt to prevent drunk driving through simulation. It should be noted that the training is not effective for all students as people do not always transfer their school knowledge to everyday life. The most important question is, "Can someone train a person to be compassionate?"
The Korean Government is said to have raised the national insurance premiums by over 6 percent to cover this program. In the U.S. the drivers' training covers other topics, so including a small issue cannot be seen as much of an increased cost. Is this program worth the money if long-term results cannot be guaranteed?
