Q: value experience or education

During my time here I am seeing they value education more than experience in the work place and the better education you have the better career you will have. 

While I do value education I do not see it as the pillar of career success. So why do Chinese value education more?

It is probably related to the "Good good study, day day up" from Chairman Mao. I have noticed sometimes this extreme obsession with the university and how some kids that cannot make it almost give up on life and they believe success is not possible for them. Fortunately in my field experience is more valuable and pretty much will give you the same chances than someone with a degree. I hope a Chinese person can answer to you about this.

Because just about anybody who can walk or talk can graduate from highschool. They hand you that diploma on a silver platter. I've known friends who got D's and F's and still got out of highschool. Having a college degree is referred to as higher education and many employess value that....since experience will come with time.

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
