Developing China

China stories in new century

Why do most Chinese people look like so anxious?

Some people say that people today value time, race against time; but I see there are filled with a kind of anxiety.
The anxiety from Ordinary people, like anxiety of study; anxiety of employment; anxiety of interpersonal relation; anxiety of the house price.
Because of anxiety, the new nouns of “house slaves”, “car slaves”, “child slaves” enriched the modern Chinese vocabulary constantly. Some people have the house, they feel anxiety for the villas; some people have a car, they feel anxiety for the top cars; some people have become the millionaires, they feel anxiety for the billionaires.
In today’s competitive society, life becomes stressful. Even more, many people are concerned about the status and wealth too much. Money equals happiness. This is an anxiety permeates in the whole Chinese society.

Focus on China’s education through a Chinese young writer


This picture is edited and drawn by myself.

The influence of Chinese writer named Han Han is larger than many professors in the universities. The China’s universities only open to attract the involvement of external factors; they can truly achieve academic freedom, and break the plight of education. So far, administration has intervened academic too much.
China need has some new universities which has different system of education and operation, truly become academic freedom. Also, the problem has become the focus of employment of university graduates; all these stuff will promote the reform of university education in China. Students should learn three things from university, how to read; how to think; and how to be a useful person. Today, most intellectuals do not have enough power to influence the public. There also is a factor about government policy. Students should learn three things from university, how to read; how to think; how to be a useful person.
Like the young writer said, his article can express people’s aspirations, but the influence is shadowy and powerless. In China, the influence always is power, is the government officials who play tricks. He is the little guy stands on this stage, but they own this theater. They can let this scene came to an end, turn off the light, cut off gates in any time. He just hope these government officials treat their influence kindly, and the other people on this stage are going to try to demolish the surrounded high walls and the light bulbs, at that time, when the bright sunshine come in, that light will never be put out by anyone.

Life Education is the eternal theme of education in China


I have got the permission, the picture is from Susan, it was edited by me.
In China, people always said: “Children are the flowers in this country.” Today, in the abnormal mortality of Chinese children, suicide rates are increasing, so the life education ought to be the required course for children. There is a city in China, the local Education Bureau decided to put the life education in teaching class, the aim is making sure the content will influence the students. Knowing death before understanding life. For the children in today, if they do not understand the value of their life, their ideality also will lose the most important precondition. Furthermore, in the face of pressure and frustration, they are unable to bear the weight of life, “they do not afraid of death.”

Why? Tracing to the source, parents and teachers all overlook the most fundamental issue, which is education of loving life. They usually ask children to work hard, they deprive children’s childhood, most of them only pay attention to the studying, they forget the cruel society is waiting for their children, they forget their children need a brave heart to grow, they forget to tell their children the life is colourful. Meanwhile, the education system is too hard for children. The children are bud; we should give them appropriate sunshine in order to make them thrive.
