Notably, China’s Educational System offers higher quality public education compared to the US education system where Chinese students can outwit US students in standard tests. Indeed, China invests in quality education where about 4 % of GDP in China goes to education with a belief that education holds the key for individual, family, and state development in the future (China Education System, 2013). The Chinese education system includes pre-school, primary school, secondary school, high school, and higher education while the US system includes elementary school, middle school, high school, and higher education (China.Org, 2013). While the private schools in US have a right to determine their curriculum and staffing policies, private schools are only prominent between the wealthy Chinese and for international students (Li, 2012). Most specifically, China offers the largest public system in the world and has a consistent and more respected teacher development system compared to the US system (China Education System, 2013). Indeed, with an enrolment of more than 9.12 million students in higher education this year, China outweighs US in educational growth (China Education System, 2013). Ideally, there are significant strengths and weaknesses between U.S. and Chinese Public School Systems.
In comparing the public secondary level education between the US and Chinese education system, I will establish relevant pros and cons with relation to the Chinese education system.
