China's Secret To Beating the USA in Education
The Chinese school system is producing some very bright children.
The United States system is, well, academically challenged.
Here’s how the Chinese manage education:
1) Schools are ranked by qualitative measure of student performance, and
2) Any student can compete to get into any school, so that
3) Competition makes schools and students better.
Competition. In Communist China.
But not in the USA. Children must attent schools based on geography. Or pay for private schooling — in effect paying twice.
One would have hoped that the last two communist structures in the world could work together.
The communists running the National Education Association — the teacher’s union — should be following the lead of the union’s smarter comrades on the other side of the world.
And let the children attend whatever school they wish; local or not.
Freedom of association. The American Way.
