Raising the level of education more broadly will require both investment and reform.
Most countries ...
Another priority should be overhauling the so-called hukou system of household registration. The reason so many children are being raised by their grandparents in rural areas is because they're restricted from accessing public services -- including schools -- in the cities where their parents work. Yet it's significantly easier to offer a quality education in urban centers than in far-flung villages. And with apartment vacancy rates above 20 percent in many cities, it would be both a humane and economically sound policy to end these restrictions.
False. It's too expensive to offer a quality education in urban centers because real-estate prices are sky-high. China should instead promote quality education in rural villages using online education for distance learning. That is far easier and cheaper to implement than building more expensive schools in overcrowded cities because online education requires only access to the Internet using tablets which should be funded by the government.
A final goal should be reforming curriculums. China is famous for requiring rote memorization of its students. But schools are also increasing classwork on communist ideology, Confucian thought and even Traditional Chinese Medicine. The emphasis should instead be on skills -- such as creativity and unstructured problem-solving -- that will help drive entrepreneurship and innovation, and ensure that students can compete in a world of robots and drones.
False. China does NOT need Western Liberal ideas which promote selfish individualism, amoral hedonism and material decadence. Instead, China should reinstate learning in the Modern Socialist version of Classical Chinese Culture based on Confucian Socialism, Buddhist Communism and Taoist Spiritualism by emphasizing duty to the State, loyalty to the Nation and compassion to the People so that Chinese citizens can live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature.
Creativity and unstructured problem-solving? NON-SENSE. The modern hi-tech Internet economies of the 21st century requires mastery of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines in order to develop TECHNICAL skills such as quantitive analysis, qualitative synthesis and STRUCTURED problem-solving. This Western liberal non-sense emphasizing so-called creativity and unstructured problem-solving is good for drug-addicted rock-stars but not for highly-disciplined, highly-organized, highly-systematic STEM occupations such as VLSI microprocessor architects, AI data scientists, biotech R&D researchers, etc.
