Q: How far back do people teach about history in China?

Since China has one of the longest documented histories out of other countries how far back do they teach about that history in China? I've read and bought some materials from bookstores recently at Barnes & Nobles back at home. I found out the book that I bought had paper that was folded differently than any other paper I have ever come across. They said that was how Chinese use to make their books. I know there is other historic things but how far back does the teaching actually go?

They teach that the sanhuangwudi are euhemerized memories of early tribal leaders, approxamately five thousand years ago.

Are you talking about a polyptich? Fellow foreigner, as I am sure you have forgotten, Barnes and Noble is a commercial chain of bookstores.

Michael Thomas, oh how I have missed you.

Perhaps you should visit some of the wonderful museums China finances to share their proud history with the world.

Yes, China has a long history but I'm constantly shocked by how little of it the Chinese people know. The only dynasties most people know of is Qin, Han, Ming and Qing. Seems like schools just gloss over everything else and focus on the "humiliation" of the 19th and 20th centuries and the "triumph" of the communist party.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
