“In a typical day, I would study for about fifteen to sixteen hours. I would get up half past six and I would go to bed about half-past one or two o’clock in the morning,” said Li Chaohui, a junior at Peking University.
However, Li does admit that the educational resources she has received is something students from other regions never dreamed of.
“I just feel really lucky, grateful and thankful. And at the same time, a little bit uneasy. But then again, educational inequality exists pretty much everywhere in the world. If you compare it with some Western countries, the current education system in China at least still enables mobility, so that’s a good thing. And I think the problem behind this educational cluster of resource is regional economic inequality,” said Li.
