Do you know Shantou University? That is a unique tertiary institution of learning where students have always been encouraged to develop their thinking and debating skills.

Schooling seems kindergarten where books act as toy or stone on which you could sharpen the edge of your thinking-sword!  The present so-called knowledge is limited for practical use and what would determine your success in the future is your strong head with which you could do well on reasonable judging to dealing with real problems!----------Debating is wonderful football match in class just as we are doing!
Try ro use simple words for teaching and communication in daily life that is essential to the success of our education!

SEARU,

have you ever been to a kindergarten? A kindergarten is not a school. Pupils there do not read and write because they are too young. In point of fact, kindergarten kids are physically unable to hold a pen or pencil to write. Their hands are too chubby. most Chinese parents don't understand that in a kindergarten the children do not normally learn academic subjects. They learn to relate to other children, discover the physical world in a safe place, develop their language skills - but they do not read books, memorise things or learn maths.

There is so much regrettably wrong with Chinese thinking about education and about children...

Thanks. I am grateful to see that I am not the only reader of SEARU's posts. He has interesting thoughts and he obviously needs some partners in the dialogue.

Chinese students fix their eyes on blackboard, focus the ears on listening to teacher‘s lecture, ti ...

Yet Japan and South Korea have education systems similar to China's including Hong Kong SAR and different from the US.  Are they doing poorly in industries and creative works?

We should not just try to follow blindly the western method but seek to understand first the origin of the China education system and then work towards hybridizing a pragmatic model which will retain academic excellence and also grow creative-critical thinking skills in each discipline but without politicizing political undertones.

It would be a grave loss to the world if students are only creative without the drive to acquire and delve into deep knowledge which is essential for R&D. This is a particularly pointed observation considering how the new generations these days have low attention spans and tend to get de-focused when they face studies they have to try to understand with enthusiasm decoupled from the objective of just passing exams or completing homework.

A key challenge is how to re-train the school teachers, university and college lecturers, and vocational and business trainers.

Create a national program to investigate and improve this aspect quickly, taking funds otherwise squandered by investing hard-earned money in Hollywood movies, none of which have succeeded internationally, and all of which only too welcomed by western movie-makers smirking how gullible are these greenhorn starry-eyed investors.

Encourage kids to teach themselves some subject who would act as researcher harvesting more sweet fruits by themselves. This is good for them to arise interest that means half of success!
Interest seems like magnet that would turn slave-like students into strong-general on learning and growth!
