There is a similar issue in the United States with unequal funding for schools.   But what is differ ...

the means of education between USA and China is tottally different.in China ,we have a tradition that take education as a channel which offer to lower class climbing up  to the top of society. As we know , the keju exam system ! And that's also a way the gov select elites to run the country, the  system accepted by all walks and corner through the history of China. but , today ,If the way broken by the means of morden education or quality-oriented education which materially deprive the chance of lower class to change their life .
I think it would be a significant risk in the future

I quite like the system used in the UK and in parts of Australia where there are schools of excellence (e.g. Grammar Schools in the UK and "selective high schools" in some states of Australia).  Entry is by competitive examination, not by living nearby.  

There are also private schools which often cost 30,000 AUD (approx. 150,000 rmb) a year to attend or more if you are a boarder.  

As for which is better, it's hard to say as each has it's own merits and drawbacks.

With regards to equality of funding, it really doesn't happen anywhere I'm aware of as there's different measurement criteria used to determine the amount of state funding and some schools are underfunded compared to others in the state education systems.  It's sad but it's life.  I don't think there's a simple solution to this problem.

Why does a supposedly "communist" nation practise the apartheid system of public elementary schools  ...

No matter where, it always is all about money and greed.

Theoretically that is supposed to be true in the United States as well.  Unfortunately, poor communities usually have inferior schools, due to the reasons I described, so poor people from those places usually don't get the kind of education that would help them to improve their lives.

None of my business, but maybe China should try to preserve some of the equalitarian socialist attitudes of communism. Beware of becoming too much of an elitist society. Capitalism has its advantages in productive and pricing efficiency; but socialism has its own advantages in humanitarianism. Best examples are the Scandinavian countries.
What's on your mind...
