Chinese, and other non westerners have a common belief that western schools provide you with a superior education, but this isn't always the case. In fact, more often than not, western schools are below the standards of third world countries. While there are some western programs within specific schools that will provide superior education, the vast majority of western schools are highly overated. Take a look at this video of a Chinese Amerikan interviewing students at a random western college. You will be shocked at what they are learning, and not learning. Furthermore, you will be surprised at the kinds of extracuricular activities these students are involved in.  The truth of the matter is, it is common for westerners not to take their education seriously. This is partly due to how easy life is for these students who primarily come from a bourgeois family background. The apathy for education has a tendency to bring down the overall education experience, and atmosphere. Those who are not familiar with western campuses would be surprised to find that many students attend college only to get drunk. On the other hand, students who arrive at third world universities have a tendency to take their education more seriously because of how difficult it is to earn a living in the 3 world, therefore they want to make the most out of their education so they can make a decent living.

Impressive: you can spell "bourgeois" but have trouble with "Amerikan". So why do some Chinese leaders send their children to study in USA ?

I'm not an ugly. And I don't even need plastic surgery. I look like I already got an extreme makeover. And I'm smart as $%$%.
