Education Problem of Global Perspective
Nowadays, education has been more popular theme all over the world. As international students, we meet American students in these days to talk about the education problem. The biggest difference with China and the United States is in middle school.
In China, the number of students in classroom is around fifty and even more. However, in America, there are some small class which just have ten to twenty people. Thus, teachers can focus on everyone and I think each people is different, so they should be treated in different ways.
On the other hand, people like to use "cramming education" to describe China Education. Actually, I quite dislike this education way, because the teachers keep the knowledge, the students receive knowledge passively. This way makes students lack the interests and passion for searching knowledge. If teachers charge strictly, students' performance would be improved, on the contrary, if not, it would fall. The reason for study is just because of the exams sometimes. On the other hand, America education pays attention to draw out children’s interests and promote the desire for learning. And there are plenty of activities for student to help them learn more about lives, so American students’ high middle school lives is more relax than that of China.
In my opinion, the difference of education is from history, culture and situation at that time. It does not matter even more beautiful. Because of the large population or some other problems, the type of education’s way maybe fit China. Although there are many blemishes or limitations, it has changed to be better gradually. And it will make a big progress in several years.
