basic education in China
In my last post, I didn't mean to criticize the Chines education. Instead, I only hoped to attract attention of those on this forum. To me, the basic education in China is a topic that deserves to be attached great importance to. It has a lot to do with the future of the young generation and that of the country.|
The Chinese basic ed has changed a lot, for the better, epecially when compared with what it was, for example 25 years ago.
When I was in primary school, the theme of my school life went like the words of a song, which was one of the few songs we had then. "I am a commune member;To cut the grass, to pick up dropings and wheat heads. Plainly speaking, we spent not much time reading.
Luckily, everything changed at the end of 1970's. The students could begin to do what students should do --to spend most of the time studying. The teachers started to gain respect.
The Chinese basic ed is improving. the students are doing what most of them want to; most of the teachers are busy heart and jsoul in preparing their lessons and correcting the student's assignments. Thae parents of the students are satisfied. But this does not cover up the fact that much needs to be donein basic ed. Some students are spending too many hours reading for the college entrance exams.This, I worry, could ruin their health. Some teachers only know cram knowledge and facts into the heads of the students. They seldom think of ways to stimulate. And in some schools , score is everything. So many things, for example, psychological education, moral education, are ignored.
