China's Schools

Interesting blog post from the Washington Post. I disagree with the conclusion. The Hidden Flaws in China and India Schools

The blog post in Class Struggle points out that the very poor in China get a lousy education, and will actually use private schools due to cost issues.

I have no disagreement with that, what I do disagree with is the conclusion that this reflects education around the country. I have worked a lot with people from China and there are a lot of top schools that are producing excellent graduates. From reading in the comments there are private schools for the middle class and rich that are world class.

The challenge for the US is we have an excellent College System overall, but the quality of our K-12 really varies. In the High School I student taught at, the drop out rate was 60% which I view as a crime.
