BOTH. Society has a legitimate interest in influencing children to become good citizens. Not all par ...



Parents should assume responsibility for their kids' sociability and behavior; the school is the place where the children acquire academic knowledge plus morality.

But it is curious to observe how the Western and Chinese parens' expectations tend to converge: they expect schools to be holiday resorts that spoon-feed their children exam matter and ensure that their children pass these exams. Everywhere I hear of "helicopter parents" ready to sue teachers who don't pass their children in important subjects.

this is special phenomenon from Chinese education system.

Everywhere you get the schools the parents deserve. If you have to bribe teachers it means your culture accepts it as a fact of life. This then devalues education per se but even this parents accept.
