Are you an Elite or a pusher of the community?

Days ago, I read an article talking about what kind of students our schools should cultivate, elites or pushers of the community. It is really a big topic.

        In China, almost all of the schools think highly of cultivating as many elites as possible, especially the training centers. The secondary schools would count how many students have been admitted to famous university like Beijing University, Qing Hua University and so on. They will not miss the words “elite education” in their advertisements. Some schools are only proud of having such top students. In most of the cases, they are rewarded according to the number of students admitted to colleges. What is education? Shall we only focus on the top students? Do they have to be shameful when they have less students admitted to college?

        What about that in America? It is said that America would like to use the words “pusher of community”, not elite. What are the differences between a pusher and an elite? Do you have any ideas?

Many people think that those who get high marks at school are elites. Do they become pushers of the community in the future?

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • 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.
