Understandable. So is that stereotype about asian parents caring a lot about their child's education sort of true? Sorry if that's racist

You could say that…
…whatever hyperbole you can come up with that, it isn’t a hyperbole. Just caring to the extreme, you could say

To an extent, yes.
Also because asian parents love bragging to family and friends about how well their children are doing, they see it as a competition.

I've legally got to go to school so I might as well make the best of a bad lot, plus you need to at least do halfway well at school to go down the general route I'd like to.
