Primary and secondary school education in America has changed since I was a student in the 60's, and since I taught in the late 70's and and early 80's.  Theories and methodologies of teaching have radically changed in the US, but it seems for the most part unfettered in China.  The one thing that is same is the government bureaucracy and hierarchy... however, that could change under Trump's administration.  Trump and his choice for Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, want to privatize education, get the government out of education.  DeVos is a big proponent to charter schools.  I see both pros and cons to that.  I fear that may do away with equal education opportunities and open the doors to discrimination.
