Students under China’s education model, who can never be creative

Last year, a book published by the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School, Amy Chua, named Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, set off a bunch of discussions about the China’s education model in the worldwide. Is the education model which is “harsh, exhausting, endless practice questions” good for the development of children? Some people support it, especially some Chinese parents, who may even hold their arms to declare their endless fanaticism to this education model. Unfortunately, I do not have any resonance to them. As a student who grew up under that “unique” education system, I have much more understandings and sentiments to its malpractices.
A Chinese government official once said: “The West relies on advanced science and technology from immigrants.” The sentence is too assertive and goes so far on their single aspect. The evaluation of the government could only be in the “community” spread instead of being recognized by the other countries in the worldwide.
The most significant feature of China’s education is the set of the education system. The schools in China prefer indoctrination; therefore, Chinese students have very strong foundation, which a disadvantage to them. The reason of that phenomenon is Chinese students always afraid of new challenges. Compare with the students in the United States, Chinese students’ creativity is much worse. Whether it is from course reports, designing reports or final exams, Chinese educational institutions pays great attention to if the students fit into the “standards”. Chinese schools are both the stressful and stale places, forcing students to remember facts in order to excel in tests. (1)
Neuroscientists know that stress hampers the ability of the brain to convert experiences into memory, and psychologists know that rewarding students…...

Education of Students with Disability in America

... Education of Individuals with Disability Name: Institution: Education of Individuals with Disability History of Special Education In the early 18th century, people with disability were often ignored, obscured, or put to death. First efforts to provide education for disabled students were focused on students with sensory problems such as the deaf and blind. During the 19 and early 20th century, schools that were specialized in providing education to students with disability emerged in United States and Europe. The extremely published story of Helen Keller influenced the introduction of education for disabled people in America. In 1887, Anne Sullivan who was Helen’s teacher said that he will not give up in offering education to the deaf and the blind, and she succeeded in teaching a five year old Helen how to communicate (Ashbaker, 2011, p. 25). Prior to 1965, there were no free education services provided to students with serious disabilities. These students were barred from attending school. Most of the students with severe disabilities used to put up in institutions. Many students who had mild disabilities and were not in a position to complete high school without any help did not have any other alternative other than dropping out of school. To appreciate developments that have placed disabled students in normal learning classroom, it is important to understand the legislative history that led to this move. Back in 1954, there was a civil rights case......

Online Education and the Adult Student

...Online Education and the Adult Student Never before in the history of academics has it been so easy to attend an institution of higher learning. With advances in technology, people are interconnected on a global level. This capability to communicate over vast distances has enabled educational institutions across the world to offer what was once thought impossible… A college degree earned by way of online learning. This unprecedented offering would now offer an educational opportunity to adults who were previously unable to find the time or the necessary resources needed to complete a resident degree plan. However, with the dawning of online education came the realization that the subject matter and workload of traditional curriculums would have to be altered to suit online learning. In addition, online students would experience both the benefits and difficulties presented by this new and unique atmosphere. In today’s society, a college degree is more common than ever before. In fact, in 1982, only 58.3% of High school graduates attended college right after graduating. Today, more than 79% of high school graduates continue on to attend college. (http://www.besteducationdegrees.com/, n.d.). A major contributing factor to this jump is the availability of higher education by way of community colleges, on-line learning, and other distance learning methods. Adults who desire a college degree no longer have to worry about putting their lives on hold in order to do so. In fact...

Eye Never Would Have Though

...around my room to get ready for the routine five hour Saturday marching band practices. As a graduate, I was so eager to head back to my alma mater to become a color guard advisor for the program that built me to what I am today. It was my home away from home, but that all changed very quickly on Saturday mornings. Instantly, as I got out of my car, I could feel the blazing heat rise from the faded asphalt that came from the beaming down sun rays that shined from the sky above. I was already dreading the temperature that would soon only rise as I stepped foot onto the plastic and rubber artificially made turf. “I knew I should’ve slept in,” I scolded myself. As I entered into the renovated football stadium, where practice is held, the first thing I saw made me cringe. The band and the color guard were doing simple technique drills that they’ve been practicing the past three months, and it was as tragic as when the final sight of the front bow of the Titanic sunk under. I stopped to analyze the weaknesses and mistakes of each member. Many of the 32 girls in the color guard were being lazy with their posture and were not standing up straight with their chests slightly extended out, their knees were not in plié for them to be able to properly push off when they did jazz runs, and their arms were swinging like trees in a hurricane when they were supposed to be down, still at their sides. Also, as they did jazz runs, their feet were not in time with the beat of the metronome and......

...Perceived Effects of Online Games to the Academic Performances among Students under the College of Business Administration Education at University of Mindanao (UM) Leynard Bangkulit Romeo Dimiao Russel Anthony Junsay Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Background of the Study In 1958, the world’s first world computer game, a rudimentary two-player tennis game, was created to entertain visitors on the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Since then, the computer/video game industry has become one the most aggressively growing business sectors in the United States and in the whole world. Obviously, games are emerging as one of the most dominant forms of entertainment. This trend goes further as of the increasing penetration of high speech Internet connection and the declining prices of computers, video-game consoles, and mobile entertainment devices. (Lee, Jin, Park, & Kang, 2005) As we know, Internet offers many conveniences. As a result it has made many people depend on it. What is worse, a large number of people have become addicted, especially to online game addiction. By2007, the population of online gamers worldwide was about 217 million, approximately 28 percent of the total online population (comScore,2007).In addition, online game addiction is prevalent in many countries, including China, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, U.S., and Canada.

...city of Reverie- self contained city sized Pod that stands at nearly 300 years. Like all Dwellers, she spends her time with friends in virtual environments, called Realms. Realms are accessed through an eyepiece called a Smarteye. Aria enjoys the Realms and the easy life in Reverie. As a genetically engineered child, as all are in the Pods, Aria was given the voice of a Falcon Soprano. She can sing like an angel, and every Sunday she meets her mother in the Opera Hall to sing for her. It is the one time in each week where she has her mother's undivided attention. The most recent time that her mother came to her for a song, she told her that she had to leave. Her work would take her to the Bliss Pod and she had to leave early, so she'd come hoping for one last song in person. It was to be the last time she would see her mother.

The New Model of American Education

... The New Model of American Education: Inclusion or Exclusion?? November 27, 2011 EEX5665 Bernadette Harris University of North Florida College of Education & Human Services Graduate School According to the U.S. Department of Education, the N.C.L.B. Act of 2001, came the law of public education that states “that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.” This law was instituted to increase accountability in public educators for the individualized education of every student in the public school system. In theory, it eliminates the ability to simply push students forward from grade to grade without evidence that they can perform at grade level. It brought with it the death of what we had previously come to know as “social promotion.” Quickly on the heels of N.C.L.B. came the I.D.E.A. (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) of 2004, which affirms the guiles of N.C.L.B. while taking accountability a bit further. I.D.E.A. states that “all students (including those with disabilities) must have access to a free and appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment” (Wright, 2004). The “least restrictive environment,” as defined by legislators, has become what is now known as “inclusion education” and the birth of the “inclusion” classroom. ......

China's Consumption-Driven Development Model Basically Established

...China's consumption-driven development model basically established http://news.hexun.com/2015-04-17/175037256.html The 2015-04-17 00:17:46 source: China business times author: ren-ping li "Consumption rate exceeded 50% for the first time in the past decade, ranking first in the Troika." The 2015 Consumption Market Development Report which is issued by Ministry of Commerce pointed out that the consumption-driven development model will be basically established this year, and the growth rate, structure, hotspots, drive of consumption will change accordingly. Unlike the spokesman of Statistics Bureau Sheng Yun’ opinion that the contribution of consumption to GDP ratio in the first quarter may reach 60%, according to Zhao Ping’s interpretation, who is deputy director of Consumption Economic Research Department of Ministry of Commerce, the full-year contribution ratio of consumption was always used to clarify the status of consumption, which in fact only reflected the proportion of consumption in economic growth, while consumption proportion in the stocking economy has always been low and hovering around 40% for a long time. However, consumption rate, which means the consumption share of GDP, is a more comprehensive measure of the proportion of consumption. Therefore, “consumption rate exceeded 50% for the first time in the past decade with the specific measurement data of 50.5 percent, which means the consumption-driven development model is basically......

Who Is Responsible for Sex Education?

...Who is Responsible for Sex Education? Writing 291 Joseph A. Marco 22 July 2010 Public schools systems have been implementing sexual education into their classrooms as a regular part of instruction for decades. Ongoing controversies exist when dealing with this issue whether sex education being taught in the public schools or whether it should be considered the responsibility of the parents. It seems most parents are either for or against it and very rarely are they standing on middle ground. Given the statistics does it matter who teaches the children of the United States the basics of sex education? Children should receive a basic unbiased and informative sex education in school, from their it should be the parents responsibility. By their 18th birthday, six in 10 teenage women and more than 5 in 10 teenage men have had sexual intercourse. Of the approximately 750,000 teen pregnancies that occur each year, 82 percent are unintended with more than one quarter ending abortion. The United States continues to have one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the developed world – almost twice as high as England, Canada, and Wales and eight times as high as the Netherlands and Japan. In addition to the teen pregnancy rate, the teens in the United States contract roughly nine million new sexually transmitted infections (STI’s) each year. Though teens in the United States have levels of sexual activity similar to levels among their Canadian, English, French, and......

Finally, after ages of waiting, our family arrived in beautiful Korea. Stepping out of the plane, we could feel the chilly weather to our bones. Never experiencing that kind of weather, my siblings and I were totally excited. Passing through immigration and baggage claim, we were talking animatedly about our new surroundings. Since we went with tour group, we knew we were in good hands. Incident number one. We were supposed to take a bus to check in at the hotel, as instructed. I guessed I was overeager and without thinking. I ran to a random bus and knocked on the door. The young bus driver opened the door and looked at me with a puzzled expression. He started asking me something in Korean, which of course I did not understand. I tried to reply in English, but before I could make the attempt, my father quickly apologized to the driver and walked me back to the tour group who was watching from afar, shaking with laughter. It turned out that the bus I was running to was not the bus we were supposed to take. I dismissed my burning cheeks. I was glad I could be the butt of everyone's jokes on......

An Education Is Never Wasted

...Malcolm X once said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” There are many different options available when it comes to educating the future men and women of America. Since private schools can be a heavy burden on one’s wallet, most people are left choosing between public education and home schooling. They both have their own advantages, and disadvantages, making it difficult to choose between the two. There are many factors that must be considered while deciding which is more suitable. However, some of the most important would be the instructors, how well the students’ needs are met, and the overall effectiveness of each. Where a student’s learning takes place is not nearly as important as who is educating them. It is of great importance that the person entrusted with the task of educating students be well qualified to do so. Some parents enjoy the idea of home schooling because they can teach their children themselves, or choose who does. However, the task of ensuring the chosen instructor is of sound credibility can be a daunting one. Although home schooling allows for the opportunity to choose a student’s instructor, the teachers within the public education system are all guaranteed to be certified. They also have a set curriculum for their students that they are comfortable with. However, home schooling gives you the opportunity to oversee the student’s curriculum, giving you the chance to change it as......

Undocumented Students and Higher Education

...Undocumented Students and Access To Higher Education in America Juan M. Galvan Liberty University Abstract This paper exposes the urgency to implement an immigration reform that would eliminate educational and occupational barriers to millions of undocumented students that want to pursue a postsecondary education. The information in this research examines the impact undocumented students may have in society and the economy of this country. There are thousands of undocumented students that graduate high school every year and have no opportunities to pursue a higher education degree, thus increasing the chances of poverty in this country, increase in unemployment and a serious negative shift in the economy. Given the increase role that immigrants and their children play in American society in the coming years, it is essential to give as many young people as possible the opportunity to enroll an succeed in postsecondary education. This should push for policy makers and educators to focus on increasing immigrants’ participation in postsecondary education to ensure the long-run strength of the U.S economy. By providing legal residency or working permit as a condition to earn a degree to contribute to society it will definitely increase this nation’s economy and reduce unemployment and poverty.
