Talking about how to have a good environment for innovation, people might directly think of education. Education, especially primary education in China, should be introspected first. What are the big differences between China and the leading countries in education about innovation? How to get it improved?

      Many foreign friends have much experience in teaching in China. Compared with China’s education, what advantages do you have in western countries or other parts of the world? What are the main obstacles in developing the primary education in China? Your advice will be highly appreciated.

Children playing by themselves encourages imagination and creativity.
Confining and regimenting children with 24/7 study and organised activity kills creativity.
Stifling free expression through rote learning and pressure kills imagination.

thank you very much for your ideas.
We see our children learning in an unhappy way, but no one change it. We know our kids struggling for more time to play but they are not allowed. Whose faults?

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
