[photopress:China_college_students.jpg,full,alignright]According to Beijing Youth Daily, China’s first survey on college entrance exam shows 50.4% of Chinese people are dissatisfied with current education system. (The figures in Britain or Australia where this is being written would be much, much worse.)
The survey also shows that 73.3% of the respondents think the exam can be fair to most participants. The survey was launched by the Ministry of Education working with Beijing Youth Daily.
The survey also shows 89.7% of the respondents admit their life has been changed by the exam.
One respondent say that he will have a totally different lifestyle if there is no such exam, and 65.5% of the respondents hold similar ideas. More and more exam participants and their relatives are worried about the result of the exam, and some 11.2% of them couldn’t sleep before the exam.
The survey reveals that 55.9% of Chinese teachers are dissatisfied with the current education system, but more than 95% of teachers also think the exam can make the competition fair.
All of which sounds pretty positive. No one likes any education system -— in what country can you find a majority in favor of the education system? — and China is no exception.
