Q: Those 7th graders are out!

Well here we are with some sad news again:

As of last month the educational bureau won't allow legally working foreign residents children to go to public school anymore and those who are in public school now must leave before 7th grade..

So you gotta go to a private primary school to high school which most B talent foreigners won't be able to afford or even 50% of A talent foreigners won't be able to afford.

I'll be a victim of this too, this is how I found out, I found out directly and witnessed the good bye of foreign 7th graders leaving school.

Always have a plan A, B and C, as we keep telling everyone don't invest here, save here because China can't be your home, even if you pretend it to be!

I wish America would do the same but we let illegals go to school.

 

I understand China's reasoning for this. There aren't enough spots for Chinese citizens so why give them to foreign kids.

But it has always been the case that foreign kids need to go to private international schools here. That is why I decided my daughter should have Chinese citizenship rather than British.

Yeah, it is wrong. Racist and Xenophobic.

Uncle wants us out.

Do you have a link to the news Ironman? I have not heard this anywhere else.

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
