Charter schools could make a strong education system stronger, in general by providing competition to state schools that, without such competition, too often revert to lazy, rote procedures entirely lacking the innovation that the 21st century needs. New Zealand charters require a sponsoring partner to bring intellectual capital to the venture, and this is particularly necessary for providing STEM education, so Kiwis should be prepared to cast their nets far and wide in seeking such partners.
I can not see how the study had individuals playing 10 hrs of videogames per day - for 3 years?! That seems like brainwashing to me, and you could find problems if people read violent stories, or even go on Facebook, for the same duration/frequency. Also I don't think stating that "The only thing society can do is try to educate people about what their video game engagement is doing to their brain" is appropriate a response to these 'findings'. Why not educate on videogames generally and not just look for the negatives. There are far more positive stories about games than negative - like how 15 year old students who play online videogames regularly (like an hour a day) get higher maths, science and reading scores than those who don't.
