Are you sure there are many innocent and "honest" students? That's far from certain. Most probably ...

'It is about the pointlessness of learning. If you can pass exams without having acquired any skills and knowledge, why then waste your time attending twelve years of a useless school?'

Coming from someone who claims to be a teacher, this is a surprise!

It's only a surprise for people who don't think about education. Teachers such as me do. That is why I wrote what I wrote.

Why do you say "cheating is PREVALENT in many countries..." as if it was the most normal, most reg ...

'If passing the Gaokao were not universally seen as the No. One ambition for every school child in China, cheating might actually decrease.'

In my humble opinion, Chinese don't pursue education for education's sake but for the tangible advantages that accrue to those who can prove with degrees and certificates, that they have "passed" certain exams at the end of certain courses.

Education is something else. It does not necessarily come with showy pieces of documents. Rather it is a corpus of intangible knowledge and insights lodged in the person's mind that the person can activate any time. Real education really liberates. Fake education gives only illusions.

Aren't you part of the problem?  You teach them and help them pass exams, yet you criticize them for that!  If you hav such an idealistic view of education, you should not be teaching in China, where the aim is always to pass exams, go to college, get a good job.

Mad dog of South Africa's digraced Apartheid regime simply refused to stop barking! The common wisdom is to leave a barking dog alone and it will stop barking, but it doesn't work with this mad dog!
