Another reason of the Chinese educational system
It is really a good article.I am very glad that someone show concern on education.|
Why Chinese students are good at taking exam ?Why they show less creativity ?Besides the reason of Chinese traditional Culture the author has referred to,the fact that China is still far behind those develop country also attribute to it.
Although Chinese government invest a lot on education,China still far behind the west.What China needs is not only a few scientists,but the whole educational level of the nation.
The exam-oriented education system is designed under the philosophy that "no matter whether you like to study ,you must learn the basic knowledge".it is not good in the college education ,but it is efficient in premary education.
The character-oriented education system,on the other hand , is under the philosophy that " only If you do what you like ,you will do it well".However,things don't always go so smoothly as people expected.Sometimes,especially the children,only a few are willing to study.Playing are more interesting than studying.If they are not forced to study,many of them will never learn to read and write.One of my friend tell me that he is very thankful for his stricted teacher in premary and middle school.However,I know when he was at middle school,he is always complain the exam-oriented education system.However,the character-oriented educational system is really efficient in college education.
In order to catch up with the west as quickly as they can,China have to choose such an education system,in which basic scientific knoledge must be taught to the student as more as possible.
As known to all,the former Soviet Union ,Japan and Korea has a simmilar system of education.Once they were far behind the west ,but under such an educational system,they catch up very soon.
There is also a common phynomenom in America that every year there is lack of thousand advanced engineers.However it is not a problem to the US,because it can employ excellent persons from other countries,such as India and China.
But for those less developed countries,they have no money to employ those advanced persons.Lots of them who are nutured by the less developed countries with huge numbers flow into the more developed countries.Thus rich countries gets richer,while poor countries gets poorer.
Thus for Chinese students,they have to study harder than the students from the more developed countries.Or China will fall behind the west for ever.If Chinese children haven't realize it,an exam-oriented educational system is formed to force them to work harder.
A Chinese-descent American scientist named Steven Chu(Zhu liwen),or Li Zhendao,perhaps,who got the Nobel Prize for physics,once said he is thankful for his foundational education in China and his college education in the US."The combination of Chinese foundational education and American advanced education is perfect".
