Rate this:
A hard-hitting exploration of China's widely acclaimed yet insular education system - held up as a model of academic and behavioural excellence - that raises important questions for the future of American parenting and education. American journalist Lenora Chu enrolled her three-year-old in China's state-run public school system. What she learned made her wonder: are Chinese children paying too high a price for their obedience and the promise of future academic prowess? Chu's eye-opening investigation challenges our assumptions and asks us to consider the true value and purpose of education. Print run 50,000.
