Chinese immigrants' dilemma: oriental education orwestern education?
There are many attractions to the Western education system. It molds top talent inscience, business, arts and sports without sacrificing the happiness of childhood. ForChinese immigrants, the image of the western dream is much easier to grasp than thereality.

西方教育体系太让人心驰神往。它能够在不抹杀童年乐趣的前提下培养科学、商务、艺术以及体育领域的顶尖人才。而对于中国移民者来说,西方梦可以展望,却难以实现。

Most Chinese immigrants' children study in public schools. Western public schools aim tocultivate informed citizens by providing them with a basic education on issues of morality,culture and general life. A public school education cannot meet the same standards as anelite education in terms of teaching equipment, faculty and work intensity. Without thepressure of homework and exams, children in public schools may feel more relaxed andhave more time for leisure. But their aspirations might rise no higher than a career as acleaner, taxi driver, cook, supermarket cashier, security guard, firefighter, or librarian .

多数中国移民小孩都就读于公立学校。而西方公立学校致力于用基础教育,在道德文化和日常生活方面培养普通公民。无论是在教育设施、师资力量和教育强度上,公里学校都达不到精英教育的标准。公立学校的学生,如果没有作业和考试压力,他们在学校就会过得非常轻松,并且也有更多的休闲时间。同时,其志向也不过于做一名环卫工、出租司机、厨师、超市员工、保安、消防员或图书管理员。

The civic education in western public schools may seem very successful. However, forChinese parents with dreams of a place in the elite, it's hard to accept - "Do we abandon asuccessful career in China and start from zero in a strange place, just to see our childbecome a happy ordinary worker? "
西方公立学校的公民教育可以说相当成功。然而,对满怀西方精英梦的中国家长来说,却难以接受—“我们放弃国内成功的事业,在一个陌生的地方从零开始,难道只是为了让孩子成为一名快乐的普通工人?”

Is there an ideal education plan?
Some people suggest that Chinese immigrants' children come back and undergo theirprimary education in China, so that the children have a strong academic base, and a betterlevel of math.

有完美的教育方案吗?
有人就建议中国移民小孩先回国接受中式的小学教育,这样他们就能掌握夯实的基础知识,而且数学水平也能得到提升。
We do hate the spoon-feeding and rote learning education mode in China. However theoriental education provides children with a solid educational base, and especially an obviousadvantage in 'hard' courses such as math, physics and chemistry. It also helps the childrento learn good Chinese. Speaking good Chinese is quickly becoming a clear advantage inwestern job markets. After their primary education in China, children can continue tostudy abroad and take advantage of a western education. Is this the ideal education planfor Chinese immigrants' children?

我们虽然讨厌中国填鸭式和死记硬背的教育模式。但是,中式教育却能给孩子提供扎实的基础知识,尤其是那些难学的学科,如数学、物理和化学。中式教育同时还能让小孩更好地掌握中文。流利的中文已迅速成为西方人才市场的明显优势。一旦小学毕业,小孩可以继续转到国外去吸纳西方教育的精华。那么,这套方案对中国移民小孩来说真的完美吗?

Choose the education which best suits
A Chinese mother in Canada chose to send her son to China from the second year ofprimary school, and then have him back from the fifth year. She says that although therewere obvious improvements in his Chinese and math, his English level dropped fast. It tooka long time for him to re-adapt to the new educational environment. So the ideal educationplan may not exist. The two education systems have both advantages and disadvantages.We can only choose the one which suits us better.
选择最合适的教育
一位在加拿大的中国母亲选择将她的儿子送到中国读小学二年级,然后在他五年级的时候再转回去。她说尽管小孩的中文和数学有了明显的提升,但英语却下降得厉害。而且重新适应新的教育环境也要花大量时间。所以,并不存在所谓的完美教育方案。中西教育体系各有优劣。我们唯有选择最合适的。
In the Chinese education system, every child is cultivated to reach the top. Only 10percent of them will succeed - there is room at the top for only a small number of people.However, China provides its parents with a dream, and an equal chance for everyone toreceive an elite education. The Western system, which provides an elite education to only asmall number of people, can be a good choice for parents of a more relaxed disposition.They will have the opportunity to raise their children in accordance with their own talentsand wishes.
中国的教育体系里,每个小孩都旨在被培养成人中龙凤。但只有10%的做到了-毕竟精英的容纳空间有限。然而,中式教育却为家长们制造了一个梦想,也为每个小孩提供了同等的接受良好教育的机会。至于西方的教育体系,虽然只给少数人提供精英教育,却是思想开明的家长的不错之选。因为它可以根据个人的天赋来培养不同的小孩。
