China will kick up football talent development with the Ministry of Education planning 20,000 primary or middle schools with a football specialty by 2017.

The move came in response to the shameful performance by China's national football team in recent years. Chinese football fans were angry the national team missed the World Cup for the past 12 years. However, China appeared to be a dark horse in the ongoing Asian Cup in Australia, winning Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan in Group B and sweeping into the quarterfinals. So what do you think about China to build schools with football as specialty?

Sounds like a terrible idea. 99,99 % of Chinese kids will never be a professional football player. As a whole Chinese schools and school system is also pretty bad, so before focusing in small things like football, they should fix the basics first.

If someone wants to play football and really focus on it, they can join the army just like many other Chinese sport prospects.

have to agree with this
how may parents will destroy their child's life by pressuring them to do something they have no talent for?

you can not 'make' someone else be good at something if they have no talent or interest.
I come across this every day with students who are in classes they have no interest in because their families think that it is a quick way to get a return on their 'investment' in education.
the result? misery

Build the schools, but don't put much into the football. Kids can learn this as an after school activity as with other sports. Build the playing fields and kids have activities that they will enjoy in their spare time...
