Many nature and social theories were invented by foreigners and we Chinese should translate their original works with more accurate words, specially for the key-terms!  For an example: 
There are two versions of translation for the same word ‘Internet’:  the first one is ‘因特网’ with 因特 sounding like inter and 网 as ‘net'; the second one is ’互联网‘ which means ’connecting-each-other-net‘. ----------- I think the latter one is more reasonable for the true meaning of the modern communication system on which everyone looks like the knot-point of the invisible net talking through the wire-threads!

    To call them 'backward' is insulting as they may not have the required skills to succeed in the area.
    If you are a teacher, these 'backwards' students should be guided into areas they are more suited for
