More information about the victim
It’s said that freshman was from a remote area, and was under huge pressures before killing himself. |
I don’t want to say any bad things about his tutor. But a fierce employment market may speak of something more or less. I do remember when I entered my university, one of my teachers told how tough the employment situation was, especially after the policy of the expansion of enrolment. So the only solution was to work hard. I know the original intention of this kind of teachers. They hope we college students can make the best of our campus life, and concentrate our attention on study, rather than part-time job or sth. else. However, the truth is they are distorting the real situation unconsciously. For it’s quite probably those outstanding students are not be able to land a good job after graduation. You know in Chinese universities, professors’ performances are not evaluated through a graduate’s job, position or salary, but the no. of published papers on the most prestigious academic periodicals, which makes them seldom concern about their students. They do little to prepare their students for the labor market. Therefore, after 4 years’ hard work, those excellent students without full preparations of changing of status will have to face a cruel blow—can’t get a good job.
On the other hand, Chinese society is heavily influenced by Confucius’ philosophy, in which people work hard not only for themselves, but also for the honor of the family. So kids can’t choose their ideal lives freely. To some extent, their achievement in the future is owed by the drive their parents.
In addition, go to university is one means of addressing the issue of employment. After all, China is a big country with a population of 1.3 billion.
