"Why peg education to property taxes when property prices fluctuate? If policies are applied that succeed in cooling property prices and thus revenue for school resources, would that mean the schools concerned will have to lower the maintenance of their resources?"  


That is true, another reason why it is not a good system.  

It is interesting that you mention "all parents should pay school fees."  Public education is free in the US, financed purely by taxes.  Is this not true in China?

"Why is a supposedly "communist" nation still practising feudal segregation into commoners and elites? "

I wonder the same thing.  Isn't communism supposed to promote equality?  I know that there is inequality in China, but isn't the government supposed to promote equality in principle?

It is interesting that in the capitalist country of the United States, even though schools are extremely unequal, the government would never say this was done on purpose, and in principle, schools (at least the public schools) are supposed to be equal, in terms of their quality and their resources.

That is interesting, because the kind of corruption you describe is not much of a problem with the public schools, but there is much corruption among the privatized charter schools.

Public schools in the US are not run independently, but are part of larger school districts that may include a whole town or several small towns together.  These school districts are run by elected boards.  Those elected boards have oversight over all the schools of the district.  They oversee the budgets of all the schools and corruption could not be hidden.

On the other hand, privatized corporate charter schools are increasing in the USA.  These are schools (usually chains) that are owned and run by corporations, that have contracts with school districts and receive tax money like public schools, but which have no oversight.  Among this sector of schools, corruption runs wild.
