Specifically, in what ways?

Rote learning?  Military training?  Classes on weekends to make up for missed lessons during holidays?  Exams on weekends?  

There MANY things that would be determined as "illegal" or "unconstitutional", the ACLU would have a field day filing lawsuits.

haha... what a joke. China's educational system is already bad, teaching the students to just memorize for the next test.
