I asked a number of young Westerners: if each book costs 5 yuan, how much does it cost to buy 10 books?

All, except for 1, told me the cost was 15 yuan.


China MUST NOT use this dumb  ...



Doubt that. Where were those "Westerners" from, what education did they have, how old etc. But I think you made that up.

Reply # 39 - A Surprise?

Alex, some source said many people think the sun goes around the earth. What would be, say, the percentage of Americans who think so?

Crisis Looming for China K-12 Schools

I am devastated by the destruction of Chinese K-12 education system by Westernization.


... there is no "Chinese K-12 education system" to begin with:

The state shall adopt a nine-year compulsory education system.

Most education for most folks in P.R. China ends at completion of "Middle School".  "High School" in P.R. China is seen as a prep for University, and not compulsory for all students.  Those not seeking a University Degree after "Middle School" could go to "Vocational School" instead.

Your source is wrong as usual. Duh! I realize you are so clueless about China.

In the US colleges, chairs and faculties fear lawsuits from students and parents. All cases of clear cheatings go unreported or unpunished. This is the reality of the US colleges.  In China, college professors were not evaluated by students, so they had more freedom when they saw students cheating.  The reality is, Chinese students cheat MUCH LESS!


It's amazing people try to state such blatantly obvious lies... Every time cheating comes up in class everyone agrees it's a big problem here... I assume you are denying it in the hopes that some new user here might actaully believe your ignorance.

Yes, students everywhere cheat, that's obvious. if caught in the West they are usually punished. If caught in China they are sometimes punished unles they are rich or have Guanxi.

That's the difference. you can deny it all your want and cry on and on about the evil foriegners but every Chinese teacher I have talked to in Chinese Universities has agreed it happens a lot here.

Things don't get better until you face the problems. Western Education has serious problems and no one wants to face them so our education is going down hill. Chinese education is the same, except it's not starting at a high position. If China wants to gain fame in the world for education they need to face their failings and start working to improve, just like the West.
