For decades people have been wondering if the Chinese or American education system is better. I personally believe from what I have read online that the Chinese high school education system is a lot more difficult than the United States. When it comes to colleges and universities, United States has a better system. I will just be focusing on high school today.
According to The Thunderbolt, “In China, students are bombarded with large homework assignments by first grade. Children usually arrive at school at around 7:30 AM and end school late at around 5:30 PM. However, the time a student leaves from school depends on how advanced a student is in school or whether or not he or she has finished the class work”. This article also stated which was really interesting that students in China only receive three years of education in high school. Unlike in America. In America, public schools are free to the public whereas high schools in China are private, making the selectivity and competition very intense. The Chinese students are required to take challenging tests in order to receive acceptance into private high schools. I love this idea and I think the United States should adapt this and also get rid of the no child left behind program. Not everyone likes school or is meant to go to school and education is serious and should be valued and not everyone values it. If getting an education was more difficult people would value it more I think. For the student who do not get accepted into high school due to low test scores are denied from further education and look for work or are homeschooled.
“Despite the challenges high school students in the United States face, the American education system is much more lenient compared to that of China”.
