Stats don't have to prove anything in this case - I don't claim that the fraction choosing commerc ...
Correct me if I'm worng, but it has been my understanding that in China the state-funded public schools have monopoly in providing education that aims for Chinese gaokao. To my knowledge, private schools cannot offer this (they can only provide extra curricular tutoring, or education that aims directly for overseas higher education).
Not true at all. China's private education industry is a booming business with for-profit companies offering elementary, high school and college programs to Chinese students who can take the gaokao. Many of them are just diploma mills with profit as their main goal which is why they're listed in the HK or NY stock exchange. This Chinese for-profit private-school industry is different and separate from the non-profit international school system for the foreign children of expat families from the USA, Europe, East Asia, Canada, etc.
The quality of these for-profit private schools is questionable. And the fact that most Chinese middle-class parents including those from elite families continue to enroll their children in the State-run public school system including the best Universities in China proves my point. Even the Chinese children who don't pass the gaokao end up going abroad for their college studies because the local for-profit private colleges have a bad reputation as nothing more than diploma mills. The best Universities in China are all State-run: Beida, Tsinghua, Shanghai Jiaotong, Fudan, Xiamen, Xi'an Jiatong, Sichuan and the numerous Universities of Science and Technology. Those technological schools are world-class, comparable to MIT, Caltech, Technion, etc.
What China needs are more State-funded Science High Schools with an emphasis on Science and Technology. My view is that all these for-profit private schools are just a waste of time and money for rich parents to spoil their kids. I am not a fan of private schools at all because they cater to rich kids who spend most of their time partying instead of studying.
The rest of your post doesn't make sense.
