Is Chinese Teaching Really the Model to Follow?

For people tasked with improving educational standards, pointing at China is often a very popular choice. There’s no doubt that in some measures that Chinese teaching methods are extremely successful. Chinese schools are full of well behaved, focused and motivated children studying up to 10 hours a day from a very young age. If you test something like math’s ability it’s likely a Chinese youngster will be far ahead of most western children of the same age.

But for many people, the ‘Chinese’ approach is not necessarily the best way to educate children. For instance, the method is very much based on rote learning, facts, figures and methods are memorized. Repetition and discipline pay an important role, where information is literally forced into the children. Even with the long school hours, children often have extra tuition in order to cope with the highly competitive University exam called the Gaokao.

It is important to remember that the gaokao is primarily a test of memory. But it’s an important test that will decide a child’s academic and professional trajectory through their life. Chinese children take these sort of tests from a very young age and all the teaching is designed around this memorizing facts and figures, it’s hardly surprising that Chinese children score very well in these sorts of environments.

The problem is that although in these sort of tests and assessments, Chinese children rate extremely highly – it comes at a price. There is a growing belief that the Chinese system is too extreme, children have loads of technical knowledge but often lack the ability to apply it. There is also a lack of imagination and interaction in Chinese school rooms.

For example one teacher said that Chinese children will write down anything you say and memorize it. It doesn’t matter what it is, even if it’s plainly ridiculous the children won’t question but merely remember it. There are clearly facets of a Chinese education that are worth emulating but as an overall educational experience it’s lacking in many areas too. The Chinese system encourages conformity and discipline, it doesn’t create great thinkers and visionaries – which is often what a country like China sorely needs. It’s not surprising really China tries to control every aspect of it’s citizens life, from politics to the internet. However even this control is starting to change, Chinese people frequently use vpns and proxies to bypass internet filters, choosing to watch things like the BBC like this video rather than State TV.

The parents and teachers in China realise that they need to instill more imagination in their children so often this is encouraged. Many parents routinely encourage their children to pick up English language skills over the internet and online media sites too – this video is an example of how they emulate filtering technqiues used in the USA to watch the BBC too – more information here.

The Youth Are The Hope Of The Nation

We will always feel heartache once we saw many victims of crimes who are innocent people. They don’t have any mistake or any violations done into the society but they are the one who died. The much said truth is that, they can’t have the justice they deserved to have because they are less people. As we can see, many innocents and victims are jailed. In fact, they don’t do the crime but they are the ones who are inside the jail paying the crimes they don’t even commit. The reason is that, the less people don’t have any voice and power to prove their innocence. They don’t have the money to fight their right and themselves. The thing part is that, those who are the criminals are roaming around the city freely. So, we must have to show sympathy and even do something just to make this straight. The foolish truth that money can buy anything can actually be stopped in our own hands most especially by the youth. The youth can be the hope of the nation. The Perl had explained how we can have a developed, good law and society.  

It is a big achievement to have a developing society. This means that the leaders are doing part and responsibilities. They sit on their positions as being the leaders and indeed do their responsibilities to serve the society. Implementing such law has its main purpose and reason and that is to have a better society. Perl designed to have a healthy and enhanced society. The youth are the ones who will be the future leaders and they must open their eyes with this fact. Some people laugh on the insight that youth are the hope of the nation. This is because they only have limited minds. The present leaders have been on their youthful days and this means that they can be a good leader in the future. The law and society must be handled well by good and intelligent leaders. If you take time to read about the law implemented by the leaders to be followed and respected by the society, you will understand how youth becomes the hope of the nation.

There are only a few who have realized how law and society connected to each other. Of course, the law is implemented for the society. The society must respect and follow the law to have a good and developing nation. Perl presented many times that the youth can be good leaders. It is better to have a young leader and intelligent one who have a good heart for the people. Once a leader has a good heart to the nation, this means that we can have a better society. This can now be a good start. Perl explained broadly about how the youth becomes the hope of the nation. Once the youth becomes educated and understand their part in the society, they are not just good people but good leaders as well. The society is in thirst of peace and the youth are the ones who can change this.

More Young Lawyers Wanted for Military Service

While the men and women in the US military do not risk their lives for money, they do need to be compensated fairly.  For this reason, a military pay chart is released every year.  This chart outlines the basic pay and allowances that military staff are entitled to in the given year.

In order to understand the chart, readers must understand the following codes:

  • E –  Enlisted.  These soldiers are the front line staff during military operations.
  • W –  Warrant Officers are people who specialize in a particular defense function.
  • O –  Commissioned officers are the highest ranking personnel.  A university degree is required for this position.

O stands for Commissioned Officers – in ascending order of rank.

Both rank and length of service effect’s a soldier’s pay.  Aside from pay, 2014 military pay chart outlines a number of special allowances.  These payments vary depending on what function the officer performs. For instance, people who work in submarines get additional compensation.

Remember though the money seems great but it’s a tough job, and you can’t just sit around watching videos on Netflix for hours.  The training and discipline is not for everyone, but it can be a rewarding career.  Every officer is entitled to a few basic allowances.  These allowances are for housing, family separation, clothing and subsistence.

When push comes to shove, people do not sign up for the military because the pay is good.  They join because they want to serve their country and do something remarkable with their lives.  However, being well-paid is a perk.  As most officers do not have housing and food expenses, they can save a large amount of money while they are in service.  This will help their family considerably in the future.
