Talking about the education system in China, you’ll find six years of elementary school, three years of middle school, and three years of high school. Describing the first day of school in the regular little city school, Peter Hessler wrote in The New Yorker, The loudspeakers crackle, along with music comes in for the flag raising. The older kids, wearing the red scarves of the Young Pioneers, marched in position while the national anthem played. An average school has several educational and sports facilities other than a chalkboard, some desks, seats along with a Chinese flag along with courtyard where kids play. Calvin Henrick wrote in the Boston Globe, Medfield social studies tutor Richard DeSorgher, who spent six weeks in Bengbu, said the variations between the two systems are stark.
He said students in China spend extended hours at school, along with extra time being tutored on nights along with weekends for college entrance examinations. Course sizes of up to 60 pupils mean rote learning can be common, he said. DeSorgher said he asked the typical Chinese-born student living in Medfield for guidance before the trip. He said, allow it to be fun. The more you may make it fun, the more they’ll need to continue to learn English. Describing the class room for a kindergarten class in a little city school, Peter Hessler wrote in The New Yorker, The class room was dirty, and there is a hole in the ceiling.
The board was chipped and scarred. Twenty kids sat at their desks, every one of them playing with a stack of Lego-like bricks. There were only three girls. There was no bathroom. Almost all students between the second and 6th grades are expected to join along with wearing a red kerchief to school every day, except when the weather is extraordinarily hot plus they wear a red pin instead. However, the Chinese education system always prepares the kids for a future, so they are almost professionals in something when they leave the school at 20 years, they use for it a very impressive system of career coaching during the whole school life.
