中国的现代化进程比国外的起步要晚,但是中国的现代化速率绝对要比国外快,各方面超英赶美是早晚的事。美国的经济、科技、军事之所以还能处于世界领先地位是由于马太效应,但是吃老底是持续不了多久的。不可能全民都不好好学习的国家能比好好学习天天向上的国家进步快。

Many school systems hire younger teachers, "the Millennials aka Generation Y" from programs like America’s Choice, or Teach for America, or some other groups and develop a reciprocal partnership to get a financial, federal kick-back in funds. Why keep an experienced senior teacher making more money when they can hire an inexperienced young teacher and pay that person much less? Also, by firing a senior teacher, they can save the system money by not paying benefits like health insurance and life insurance. Unfortunately, money is more important to them than cultivated education. So aside from 14th amendment violations practiced by some preferential principals, money is another motive for firing tenured senior teachers. If these senior teachers do not retire, or resign then, they are issued unsatisfactory evaluations, or their working environment is made uncomfortable. . . In other countries, experienced, senior teachers are greatly valued and respected for their knowledge. Perhaps that is the reason that “U.S. students’ academic achievement still lags that of their peers in many other countries.” http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/02/15/u-s-students-internationally-math-science/

Chinese education focuses on math and physics, some chemistry. Most of the students lack original ideas, imagination, critical thinking. Basically lacking all the skills needed for innovation so now China has a great influx of accountants and engineers. A lot of the grades are bought and paid for, especially in university. If you make it to university you are basically guaranteed a degree. The education system is very narrow and only challenging in the aspect of how much one can emulate and copy.

Peter Pan
Peter Pan - Πριν 3 χρόνια
I think the reason why US is still a powerhouse is becoz US still have a high living standards and good freedom so best talents from other countries (China, India, Korea, Europe, Russia) go to US. US is more like a blood sucker now than before. However, as the country become more and more populated by some ppl (you know what I'm talking about), it become less and less attractive to elites. In that case, "Bang!!!" US economy crashes.
If countries like China and India are going to treat their talents very well and crack down corruptions, US will be in a "drained" condition. Currently, US is still a much much better place for elites to go than the above two countries.

I don't get it, if everyone becomes an engineer or doctor; who the fuck's gonna do most of the work? 
I don't know about China but only about 10% of Indians have a university education, 30% are completely illiterate, 40% never finish grade school and 20% never finish high school. 

Also, you went to like some big private schools there, go to a public (or "government") school in a low income area and you see exactly the same irreverent behavior and truancy that you see in the ghetto kids in America. A lot of them even end up in child labour or sex slavery rackets etc very early in life..India still has a lot of problems compared to China and US. I don't think you can find any 10 year old beggars or heroine addicts in America can you? 

The problem is a lot of the marginalized populations in India are forgotten and not taken account of (unlike America where they're actually focused on by the media and society), but they're people too, but the one's in power want to pretend they don't exist or look down on them. But I do admit there are still millions of Indian kids that study like there's no tomorrow but a very small percentage compared to the 1200 million people there.

although yes, the education system in America sucks, this guy has no fucking CLUE what he's talking about. I teach in Taiwan, the education system is DISASTROUS there. They start kindergarten at age 2, what the hell for? They start "learning" before they even know how to socially interact. They go to school for more hours, what does that do? it makes students DESPISE education, and what happens is people end up losing interest in learning later in life. Then he goes on to talk about how business is going to China and India, YEA BUB, because they have large, underpaid and under-educated slave populations which are ready to be exploited. Chinese students get good test scores because they focus EXCLUSIVELY on test scores and wrote memorization. They don't do group projects. They don't do presentations. They don't even have discussions in class. This leaves students VASTLY ineffective in just about every aspect of human performance except for the ability to get high test scores. This guy is talking about increasing the school days and school hours. Honestly I'm going to contact PBS myself and tell them to get me on the air because I'm sick of uninformed, posturing idiots like this spouting nonsense about things they don't even come close to understanding. The interviewer is asking the right questions and this bozo is totally missing the point. He's talking about vocational programs? Well China doesnt have vocational programs. They stigmatize anything that isn't an office job or above. Keith needs to take a good hard look in the mirror. It looks more like he's trying to justify future all expense paid trips to China, on the tax dollar no less.

+Nitin Reddy it's definitely disgusting but in India it's at least a bit more understandable. You're right, the have/have not caste system has been in play for a long time. In China I guess they have something like that, but it's so easy to grow food in China (because of the huge amount of arable land they have, exponentially more than India) that you don't see a lot of homeless people. So it plays out a little differently. The shocking thing is that the people at the top, in all countries, feel as though they are entitled to be there, when in reality they just lucked out or stole their way to the top.

+I'm Doni. I make music and do stand-up comedy. Much work. Very effort. There's definitely a huge stigma for non-desk type jobs in India, which is probably the reason for the low quality infrastructure. It's a cultural mannerism we've inherited from the caste system. They look down on the people that built the roof over their head or made sure water came out their taps, fucking disgusting behaviour if you ask me.

+常轶轩 If the jobs are not stigmatized, then why are those workers underpaid, undertrained and and why are the jobs generally done by people from poor families? We also can look to the general quality of workmanship. There are no standards unless a lot of money is involved. To be clear, I'm not saying quality work doesn't exist in Asia, but in Canada, where I come from, trades workers are paid well for doing quality work, we have a labor union that guarantees the quality and as a result, most of the work is of good quality. Your point of view on this subject kind of proves my point that Chinese students are unable to see more than just the surface of almost any issue due to the one way education system. Also you are missing the point about the education stuff too. It's not about working hard, certainly Chinese students work hard. The point is that the system doesn't allow for students to make connections and grow faster as a result. Believe it or not I'm writing a book on this subject right now, and it's more complicated than I can explain here, so we'll just have to wait until it's published!

I m Chinese high school graduate and I m in a college in America now. I agree with your " what happeens is people end up losing interest in learning later in life." It is what is going on in Chinese universities right now. Only a small number of college students who study the CS or engineering or BIo still have the interests in learning in China. I have many friends that are L&A majors or business major dont do shit in college at all. So the problem here this guy was not seeing is that 90% Chinese students work extremely hard in order to get in a good four-year university, but the thing is they work that hard because we have been told by our parents and teachers that everything we did in elementary school, junior school and especially high school is for freedom in university. Because no one is longer in charge of u and u can do whatever you want without teacher and parents' babbling. However, that why many Chinese students become lack of competitive ever since they get in college, because they are finally and they stop learning. It is simple actually, Chinese students have good grades from elementary to high school mostly because of parents and teachers, so in all fairness many of us gather the ability to learn by ourselves. That's the main reason why we started to loss in business exercising. Objective speaking, if we can put Chinese junior&high school education and the US university education together, it probably can work in a damn good way. And the students who are graduated from this kind of education system would the great fundamental skills and still continuous motivation and the interests to learn in college. About the stigmatized thing, that's bullshit, this is just cultural difference between the us and China. We dont stigmatize jobs that are not office job or above, we just think that jobs dont need u to take risk, stable and can always give u a certain amount of money are good jobs, because they are reliable so you dont need to worry about your wife and children. The jobs that are risky or changeable are just not traditionally good to your family.

Interesting research, I think we can learn from different approaches, but what about the emotional, social, and physical impact of China's education system? As a university teacher in China, I can confirm that the students crack under pressure, are in constant competition, have bad relationships with their parents, 90% of them wear glasses because they've damaged their eyesight from studying, and they all have the same anxieties about getting a job when they graduate. I dread the idea of America following suit.

Truly appreciate your work here. What does USA student do at grade 4? I don't think Xi is doing much about education reform, yet! You never know. The corruption in the Chinese gov't is more important. The education department is full of corruption as well.

+zhiduoxing 1 I worked at a Foreign Studies High School for two years in China, and am now a Director of a department in a Study Abroad program/company, I help Chinese kids prepare to go to USA/Canada/UK/Australia with AP exams, entrance exams and test prep, as well as history, reading, all the stuff that we do starting in grade 4 in USA that China just blindly ignores. I understand why Chinese education is based on memorization, there are thousands upon thousands of Chinese characters that must be memorized to work in society, and writing them with the stroke order, etc. I don't think Xi is moving toward more discussion in education, and we are ending up with tens to hundreds of thousands of Chinese kids who are going abroad that have no freakin' idea what they are doing in Western education. It's frustrating but I love living in China, love my work and love the people I work with, so I can't complain about any of that. I will critique the education system though, because I spend endless hours every month trying to reverse the damage it has done on sweet and innocent kids who are interested in going abroad.

+Mark McCormick For the reciting part, it is within the Chinese tradition. In dynastic period, people recite the entire Analects, 三字经,千字文, etc. And the civil service exam (entrance exam for working in the gov't) consists of memorizing this and expressing your thoughts about the country. This is probably the best explanation Chinese memorize all these things whereas Americans don't. Of course, the world are changing, and we should change our traditions accordingly. I don't know whether you need a source for "fully aware of the problem". My high school/college friends (and educated people who I talked to) are aware of these problems. If you don't take this as a source, then I guess you win the point. I understand we need discussions and more participation in Chinese classroom. This is bright side of US education. People need to learn how to speak more eloquently. In US, I think they should borrow the strict discipline of Chinese school and the hard-working ethic of the Chinese student. Out of curiousity, are you currently teaching English in China?

+zhiduoxing 1 1) "As a Chinese citizen, they should memorize the beautiful literature from ancient scholars". Agree to disagree. We don't memorize The Declaration of Independence and walk around quoting it all the time in the USA, don't see why it is necessary to do so in China, but whatever. 2) "At least, we are working hard to change it. We are fully aware of this problem." What's your source for this? The Gaokao is changing to becoming more China-centric, they took away part of the English section starting this year. That's not working hard to change it, that's making it worse. I don't agree the Chinese educational system is working to make things better, recently there has been an influx of stories from the media about how China is trying to reject Western values in education. Incredibly stupid in a globalized world and not "working hard to change it"...unless working hard to change it means going in the wrong direction. You seem to have a pretty good grasp of both education systems. I agree maths and sciences are significantly better in China. However when it comes to innovation, lateral thinking or problem-solving, creativity and other things like this, I don't expect any person educated in the Chinese system to save the day. It's cultural, sure, but it has turned masses into mindless robots. If China ever reforms their education system...look out. Until then, it will be same-old, same-old.

The USA is not a disaster zone, data has to be looked with insight and careful analysis. The percent of children that do well in Math is 8.8%.   If the US population of 310 million is considered, and we extrapolate the 8.8% of very-good/excellent children to the whole population, we can say that 0.088*310 = 27.28 million of very-good to excellent Math people. That´s more than enough to keep the society machine working, and more if genius foreigners be constantly hired and added to the USA mind assets.

In Reading and Science the percentages are slightly  better, and if there were tests of business proficiency and innovation that would show an even much better USA think-tank.

So instead of learning something of importance they're learning how to pass a test so that they can graduate and the school district receives more federal funds. So yes Mr.Ballard it's about money!!! Without testing I have personally seen 1st hand a school place a child with an IQ of 170 in to a special ED class just for the money

Ok Mr.Kieth Ballard I have to burst your bubble and wake you up! 1st there will never be a robust economy again, this is what they want, economic collapse. 2nd China is the model for which the US is to follow even in education, why? Because it's easier to control non-thinking people and trust me most of the people here can't problem solve simple things. These statements are not my opinion they are years of observations in the classes and the society at large.

How can a country where the people can't listen or speak in English and there's no type of phonics program. How in the world do you think anyone can be number one in reading? If you believe that you're just plain naive. There's no body language there's no creativity or imagination. Just copy, memorize, and learn how to pass test. They can't get jobs when they graduate. The government has to pay the company the students salary for the company to hire them.

I'm sorry to say your information is incorrect for China! I don't know about India, I don't live in India. I live in China and teach in China in both the public and private sectors. The education system here is the worst and America is trying to follow China's lead. I challenge you to live here for at least 5yrs to get a better scope of what's really going on here. You only got a quick snap shot of what you think is going on. Oh yeah that test is fake, what I mean is they have the answers.

I still remember that my history teacher from a Las Vegas public middle school have us doing cross words and coloring maps during the class most of the time while she talks to another teacher next door. That was my first school year in US. I thought I was in heaven! LOL.......

I' American and work as a remedial tutor. I fix kids who are failing- or at least try to. Sometimes, I wonder why a child is doing badly in school. Really wonder. And then I meet the kid's mother, father, stepparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. And I think two things. One is "Holy crap!". The other is "Oh, well NOW I understand why the kid is so screwed up! Coming from trash like that, the kid never had a chance!".

Nowadays Chinese kids are smart. They are not really "conformed" to the kind of obedience you mentioned, but just "pretend" to obey you when they are at school. It's good training since you need to pretend to be a good servant of your boss and be a good actor once you enter into the workforce when being adult~ It doesn't suffocate innovation at all~ We Chinese are the best strategists and deceptionists in the world~

There is innovation from India and China too, but that innovation is not a world changing or niche changing innovation. Even though there are improvements in Indian and Chinese schooling,US is adapting to the global human resource challenges there is no alternative to Berkeley, Ivy.lg or MIT. Sorry to say asian higher education is not simply in the same league of what the US has to offer, and this is where real innovation (world/niche changing) takes material shape.

cause we are so accustomed to do what we are told, when there is no one telling us what to do, a lot of us will get lost and then mess things up or just follow suit, go with flow, nothing more than mediocre.

i am a Chinese teacher now teaching in US college, i have to say i agree with you on the society nourishes the innovation. Actually the Asian society instills too much obedience into people, and all the hard work end up being a staff, a worker, never a leader.

American innovation is not because of education, it is because of American society. People like this man get determined and do some research, then he can get his idea on national television, you cannot do this in China. In China people do not really worry who they are, therefore, less motivation and more discipline.

The interviewer is stupid as well. Creativity is among every person and depends on the person. Americans don't have more creativity. China is just more disciplined.

The interviewee is so stupid. Countries who have a high capita and not gdp like Korea stay in school 365 days all day in school. Private spending in Korea is higher than China. Chinese reliance in public education is similar to the U.S. There isn't much difference. Currently global organizations such as the UN and the World bank is under Korean people. Chinese public education is only going to have the same effect as the US. America should be more worried about the european nations.

Yeah they will fellow Korean. Americans are not following the rest of the world in terms of education. All three people you named qualified to Harvard. Because of the rising global influence people like you can never make it into Harvard neither can I. I don't like China. but I know how to admit that America is a failing nation.

America is in fear of Chinese education. British, the French, the Germa, etc. all surpass the U.S. and China buy a hundred times. India and both China's capita is very low. The nations I named, spend more money privately than the government on the public education. Chinese private spending is close to zero. That is why their uniforms are track suit.

Its funny how you think China has a great education when Koreans spend more even when our population is smaller. Korean students practically live in school. We spend more money than China even when our population is smaller. Chinese people's uniform is a track suit lol. Korean students have at least 5 uniforms for different occasions. Koreans spend more money privately than publicly in education. Koreans stay in hakwons which are studying institutions so when school is over they come home at 12.
