A recent article in a Taiwan media claims Chinese students from middle class families are having ever increasingly difficulty's adjusting to self monitored school studies in the US.

Amid a craze for overseas study, growing numbers of Chinese students have had difficulty adjusting to foreign countries, leading to the appearance of multiple problems such as suspension of studies due to their inability to handle schoolwork, or psychological ailments with some going off the rails or even committing suicide, according to the website of state-run China News Service.

This is by no means the status quo nor is it confined to Chinese students. It is confined to those students who have been coddled and overprotected by the family support system. This also follows those young students who finish schooling and join the work force no matter what country or origin.

The nurturing of all young student turned worker must be full rounded with the ability to adjust to whatever conditions they find themselves. This creates a high tension atmosphere for any student leaving home to study elsewhere but more so for Chinese students studying abroad who come from over protected family structures. It is not about can they study and complete examinations but can they adjust to a changing world and be successful. The stress a student is palced under to succeed is a burden no budding young adult should bear. The psychological effects are life lasting which can effect relationships to everyone around them--from marriage to friends to work place associates.

There are of course exceptions to every rule.

No, I don't. But I have a friend who went to a top notch UK university and got MBA degree. After returning to China, he only landed a poorly-paid job in a bank.

The myth of Chinese who are with overseas education background and then can get a job with fat salary is busted.

All university sudents are faced with this same dilemma....From the beginning of University time--(Plato is credited with the conception and implementation of the first University) we all had to take courses with no relevance to out future aspirations.

However the other side is this..ALL education of all matters are related and necessary. They are all related to mathematics--even the science of philosophy. If a matter is not physics it has roots in physic's. To understand one principal one must understand or have in-depth knowledge of all matters. Only then can one be truly successful to family or society.

Families who parents have no education whether it is primary or secondary-- have no idea what their children study or learned..They don't sit down with them and help them with their homework...only that the end result must be 100% correct answer. In most cases it is not the parents or grandparents fault they have no education. It is a result of "circumstances beyond their control" which kept them from learning.
If given the opportunity how successful could they have been?

The major point in the first post was How valuable the education of life and knowledge is a primary factor in educating our youth today. If leaps and bounds are needed then make that happen whether by hook or crook which is so prevalent today.
If you want to teach a child how to swim you don't throw them in deep water and tell them to die or swim. You teach them how to keep from dying. The success rate will be 9 1/2 of 10 over the first method which would have a failure rate of 7 over 10.

abramicus point is what type of job will they get

the same one they are doing after school
flipping burgers?

this is an interesting topic.
There is the private school system that offers a lot to the students.Most students that finish high school in these schools attain good enter scores for their preferred subject
The only problem with these kids is that they are "spoon fed" and when they enter university they have the most difficulty adapting compared to the non private kids who had learnt to  study independently.
the kids from the well funded private schools might have the best high school education, more opportunities for sport, music etc
not necessarily the best education to prepare them for the tertiary part.

My nephew is very lazy,Chinese student, when he goes to Brisbane to university, he will have to get himself out of bed and organise his life, do his own laundry, pay bills and cook his own meals. He is in for the shock of his life when he meets reality and real life.
