Just about everyone in China knows the problems with the education system but the government has a little conundrum.  If they really improve the system the way they know it should be improved, the ambitions of the citizens will become a danger to the state.  The reason the education system is the way it is, is because they need sheep.  Tear down the sheep factory, and you will have a thinking, striving society that won't put up with this sh@t that's being forced down their throats.

 

That being said, how can the sheep change the sheep factory?  Not possible.  In order to truly change, foreign experts need to come in and head a new program.  That will never happen because of face.  So...

I forgot where I heard it, but in a comparison between China and India (topic was emerging economies) one of the big differences was. "In Indian schools, Children asks questions"

The day that there are some foreigners as principals, vice principals or deans in some schools or universities you will know that things have changed (and I don't mean international schools). So far I've only heard of one foreigner being made VP of a university and he was born in China anyway. Yes there would be language problems but aren't all students learning English?

 

What's wrong (don't get me started)?: rote learning, lack of creative and imaginative thinking, 100% reliance on the final middle school exam for university entry, one size fits all, cheating, bribery, guanxi

 

For English: lack of a speaking test in CET & TEM - so why bother with oral English?

 

and that's the short list!

 

meanwhile Chinese will continue to "vote with their feet" and study overseas if they can afford it.

I have a list of ideas and urgent  needs for change starting with the kindergarten and going through all the educational system in this Country. But it's not about my needs it's about this Country need for a change. As long as they think "this is China", it ain't matter what I or us as foreigners think about their educational system. 

I nonetheless found that some personal efforts have brought green sprouts where I work and teachers, very little or little more have added to their understanding my suggestions and ideas especially because I worked together with the principle. She wouldn't admit that I was right but I suspect she would come up with them as though it was her ideas and that made possible little changes. It is this sort of efforts that we foreigner teachers should put together with the Chinese teachers and let them think it's their ideas so that you can enjoy the change you look for. 

Nevertheless, changing the educational system as mentioned by op to get it in line with the UK and other democratic countries it won't be possible. As already mentioned by xinyuren, that would be dangerous. China is not a democracy.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
