another question------

and as we all know that there are lots of various educational system,  but in truth, some are good for men, but some not.
for example, the education system before New Chi ...


Old education system of China had it's saving grace, especially when it comes to ithe imperial civil service examination system. It had accelerated the interaction between social classes, added lots of new blood to upper class and broken the social hirarchy. Even children from poor family could have the chance to take several exams in one year, which changed their fates.  The imperial examination told people that they would be comtempted not because of  their low social status but because of their poor ability.

if Old education system of China had its saving grace, then, Why was the destruction its destiny?

added lots of new blood to upper class and broken the social hirarchy

don't you think what you'd said was a paradox? Upper class and Breaking the social Hierarchy?

Even children from poor family could have the chance to take several exams in one year, which changed their fates. The imperial examination told people that they would be comtempted not because of  their low social status but because of their poor ability.

as we all know that lots of talented men who have the great ability but still they in the low social status. and also we know that lots of craps though have the high social status, actually are incapable of making the things better. it's a very common phenomenon, haven't you ever been aware of  it?

no one is born a man of inability. but verily, through the schooling most of them turned into the men of stupidity. few are choosed for serving the imperial service system.
if the schooling system is healthy, then why most of them are changed into a mess of cripple of mentality?

and how can you explain that millions of students from poor family in rural erea still have rare opportunity to get into the city university, and still remain at the place where they ever want to leave?
are they, the poor students in rural erea, incapable of thinking things better, or doing things better?

they are equal to you, if you are in their place, and they in your situation, i can declare you are now still in your poor condition at rural erea, and they may be now despising you your inability in the city university.

maybe you'd say that you'd try your best to win your bright future, but if you are in a family without any background of education. may be you could never think about this problem, for maybe you'd never know the concept of what's a bright future.
maybe what the Bright Future they'd thought is the same as  A.Q(阿Q), be an emperor ruling billions of stupid people, and kill the smartest one at anytime as he please.
so the wheel of history run around and around, but still at its initial place without any move in reality.

so what's your concern about these problems?

After reviewing all the posts, i see 12-14 years studies, a lifetime success.

Yet for those waiting for chance to come by, a lifetime waiting for success to drop by.

Supporting a stable peaceful government is the ultimate to pay all bills.
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

Education is a must nowadays, otherwise what else can a young child do?

Coming out of school or college doesn't mean one should have a new chip on the shoulder. In fact, if we observe life carefully, the graduate at any level should accept that once you get into the work stream, there is a levelling effect waiting for you.  By this, I mean everybody should mentally take it they shouldn't treat others who did not have as much education less than equally how they would treat their friends who've graduated with them.

The job market gives a few points for the education, but working life of risks and rewards is based on results and teamship.  Results come from knowledge, skills, experience, initiative and luck. Aptitude.  Teamship comes from wanting to cooperate and to help everyone around to do well, and raise the bar of excellence.   The education one has just says there's a greater chance the educated person will be able to realize these tasks faster and more efficiently.  Nothing to do with expectations of being paid better or treated better.

Unless one has some special manual skills which can command a premium in the work market, such as a craftsman or painter whose works of art are in vogue, the likelihood of those without education landing up in unremitting manual work paid low increases with the size of this cohort.

So, in order to say that the purpose of education is to prepare you for a more fulfilling and rewarding career, one must accept that the more you know, the more others will value what you know in order to provide directions and solutions, both of which being always in demand anywhere all the time.

Education increases choice and mobility.

It also helps one to appreciate the beauty of markwu's thoughts.

any mantou around?
