Q: What is the percentage of highschool dropouts in China?

Does anybody know the percentage of highschool kids that drop out, and if the percentage has increased or decreased in recent years? Also, what can a highschool dropout in China do if they drop out, is it more serious than in the States since education is stricter here?

A 2009 survey found that 50.4 percent of high school students suffered from school weariness in China, which education experts blamed on existing education methods, notably the cramming method of teaching and the intense focus on exam scores.

According to IPS, the ‘gaokao’, or the gruelling entrance exam is the main reson for the high drop out rates. This focus on exam-based education is the biggest contributor to China’s dropout rate, education experts say. According to a report published in May of 2010, the dropout rate in some rural areas was as high as 40 percent (although official Ministry of Education estimates are 5 percent in urban areas and 11 percent in rural areas).

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
