Plus, there’s tons of further reading and resources after the transcript!


This is Jeff J. Brown China Rising Radio Sinoland and the founder of Seek Truth From Facts Foundation and the China Writers Group. A lot of you may not know, but my wife and I are both certified public teachers in Oklahoma and we taught overseas in international schools from 2010 until 2017 and then had our tutoring school from 2017 to 2019 in Shenzhen, China.

So, education is a big part of our lives. So, it’s a big deal for us. I think, about my wife when she graduated from college in Paris, got her master’s at the University of Paris back in the 70s. And that was a time when the French education system was really accountable.

It was one of the best education systems in the world with their bac, they call it the baccalaureate. And to get a baccalaureate, a high school degree compared to other countries was essentially like not only going to high school but going to junior college as well. It was that difficult. The grading system is still the same today. It’s based on 20 points. And in the old days, if you got a ten, you passed and that was good enough. And my wife is no dummy and she got a ten. She was glad to get that because it was that difficult.

Recently with less accountability and great inflation and lowering standards and let’s be honest, a lot of it has to do with the fact that with floods of non-European immigrants coming into France and non-European immigrants flooding into the United States, principally from Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, with the language issue, everybody has to succeed. And this also gets back to the 1960s with all these goodie-two-shoes. Everybody has to succeed. Everybody has to do well etc., etc., etc.

Accountability and accommodating all of these millions and millions of immigrants have fueled the decreasing standards in Western education. I can at least speak for France and the United States since my daughters went to school in both France and the United States. My younger daughter went to college in China and got her degree at Beijing Normal University. And, we taught in China. So, we’ve got three countries that we can compare. When my wife got a ten, I just read recently, that my wife got a ten out of 20 and was very happy to get that.

And it was just reported recently that today if a ten out of 20 for France’s baccalaureate, it would be a “three” back when my wife was going to school. That’s how’s how dumbed-down French education has become. Unfortunately, the same thing is going on in the United States. I never will forget when my wife was teaching in Oklahoma City before we left to go back to China in 2010 and there was constant pressure to not flunk anybody, you can’t fail anybody. And we also got that at international schools when we were in China. Even if they’re a complete total goof-off, you cannot flunk anybody. Of course, in private schools, they want to keep the chairs filled.

Someone at the desks, because they’re paying money and they don’t want empty. They want full classes. But in public school, again, it’s accommodation. There’s this rationalizing and less and less accountability. My wife was extremely morally torn when a minority girl flunked her French class. My wife was teaching French and she came in crying and begging, and well, I have two part-time jobs and I’m supporting my family and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. What do you do? My wife is a teacher with integrity, she explained to her, listen we’ve all got problems.

If I forgive you for this and pass you when you actually flunked, that’s not going to help you be a better person, a more accountable person, a more responsible person, and a more resourceful person to find solutions to your problems if I do. And so, she flunked her, and it was quite acrimonious. But when I was teaching also, they didn’t give someone who deserved an F, I gave them a D and gave them a C minus. And that does not happen in China. There’s serious accountability.

They just had the Gaokao, the famous Gaokao test the first week in June every year about 10 million students. So, this year, I think it was 12 million who took the Gaokao. There’s no age limit. I read an article about a billionaire, a Chinese billionaire who has been taking the Gaokao for 20 years and is still trying to pass. It is extremely difficult. It is not a rote memory. It is logical thinking. It is contextualizing. It is using creative creativity and logic to answer questions. And, in fact, in the US and again before France now, the standards have just gone to shit and people can’t read anymore.

People are complaining. People can’t read anymore. People can’t add, subtract, multiply, and divide anymore and of course, France and the PISA rankings have just cratered, as has the United States, whereas China has been number one in the PISA scores going back several years, which is actually a European OECD international test that tests hundreds of thousands of students around the world in China and Singapore and Taiwan province, and previously Japan Asian countries with Confucian accountability, Confucian work ethic have always done better than the West at least in recent memory.

And China has just been running away with it for the last few years. But before World War two, I have seen high school tests. In the United States before World War Two, they were like the Gaokao. They were hard. Most kids today in the United States would flunk in a high school test from before World War two. That’s how far our education system has fallen in terms of developing the biggest and the brightest. Here in France, my French cousins, both of them are teachers.

They teach pre-K students in Paris and they have severely autistic children in their class, “Mainstreaming mentally handicapped and autistic kids into regular classrooms.” Oh, they want it. Everybody has to have an equal chance. Well, as my cousins talk about all, the other kids are being cheated out of an education because they’re spending all their time with these 2 or 3 autistic and mentally challenged students, whereas before they went to special classes with special teachers to help them do the best that they can do using the special tools.

And I know that because I’m actually certified in special education and I’ve taught special ed kids and my wife has and it is different. You can’t mainstream them. So, they’re doing that in France. I don’t know about the United States, but of course, it’s just austerity. It’s just they want to just cut corners. They don’t want to pay the teachers. They don’t want to pay for special ed teachers. They don’t want to pay for special education classes. And so, the dumbing down continues as teachers are absorbed with taking care of special needs students in a mainstream class.

And so, the mainstream students are getting cheated out of a decent education. It just goes on and on and on. There are several links here when the Gaokao happens in China, the whole country practically stops. I mean, entire towns shut down to be quiet for three days so that the kids can take their Gaokao fleets of taxis there. There are pictures of fleets of taxis on the ready to help kids get to their Gaokao destination. And the taxis are volunteering there you don’t have to pay to take a taxi. Busses are organized.

Thousands of people will line the streets with cheerleaders and flags of China waving the busloads of Gaokao students going to the Gaokao testing centers in towns with banners all over the streets. It’s like the 4th of July in the United States or Bastille Day in France. It’s like a huge celebration encouraging these students to do their best. And it’s accountable. Anybody and everybody can pass the Gaokao if they study and there’s no corner-cutting, there’s no dumbing down, there’s no reducing accountability.

It’s hard to know and it affects your life. And if you don’t do well, well, then you don’t get to go to the best schools. At the very top level in the Gaokao, they get a free ride, and they get to choose the universities they want to go to. As your score goes down, you get less and less. The next band may get their tuition paid for, but not their room and board. Then the next band down will be they don’t get tuition and room and board, but they’ll buy their books. And so, it just goes down and down and down. It’s very, very accountable.

And then if you get down below a certain level, if you want to go to college, you can go to college, but you have to pay for everything and you may be told that you can’t go to the 3 to 5 schools that you picked. But there is an opening at this lower-level university or college in a smaller town. But you can go and if you want to pay for it and then you can get your education. So, that’s why the Chinese are producing 75,000 engineers a year, tens of thousands of PhDs, and hundreds of thousands of master’s degree students every year because the Gaokao reflects the ability and the knowledge of the students who take it.

So, that’s why quite frankly, why the Chinese are kicking ass and taking names in terms of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, inventions, patents, licenses, medical innovations, inventions, etc.

Anonymous article describing school life in China

School in China can start at the kindergarten level (defined as a full day program for 3-6 year olds), but is not required by the government. Primary school, which is compulsory and funded by the government, starts at age 6 and is dependent on residential registration, also known as “hukou.” Just like in the United States, where someone lives within the country and city impacts the quality of their education and future opportunities. Class sizes are much larger in China with 30-40 students per class, teachers are generally better paid and significantly more respected, personal student scores can be said out loud in front of the class and posted on school bulletin boards, school days are longer going until 5PM for most schools, and homework and after school private tutoring lessons are a daily occurrence. However, their lunch breaks are longer, sometimes up to 2 hours in length. Some similarities are that the majority of schools use the 5-point grading system on a scale of 1-100 with A, B, C, D, and F for letter grades, and different regions in China will differ in their educational systems in minor and major ways just like the state-to-state differences in the United States.

As for standardized testing, China socially, professionally, and systematically puts intense pressure to succeed in order to progress forward academically. The first standardized test Chinese students are exposed to is the Primary School Leaving Exam (小学毕业考试 – Xiǎoxué Bìyè Kǎoshì), which is taken in their sixth grade year to measure academic performance and readiness for middle school. The scores will often determine which middle school they attend; the higher the score, the better school they get into. The next time students are given a standardized test is in their 9th grade year: the “dreaded” Zhongkao (中考 – Zhōngkǎo). This exam is used as a high school, or senior (upper) secondary school, admissions placement exam, and can be used to place students on different high school tracks (i.e. Regular Academic, Science, or Humanities). It also marks the last required year of their academic career. If the results of the test are too low, students may choose to go to vocational school, a specialized institution such as art or music (if not already in one), or drop out to seek employment with their family or find a non-degree job.

Senior (upper) secondary school, aka high school, lasts 3-4 years, with the last year being primarily focused on preparing for the Gaokao (高考), the famously and impossibly difficult standardized exam for university placement; a simple Google search of this exam has thousands of results on how difficult this test is. This is the test Chinese students and families have prepared their entire lives for. Unlike the SAT and ACT, which are each offered 7 times a year, the Gao Kao is only offered one time a year in early June. If you don’t get a good enough score for a passing rate, then you have to wait another year to retake it. There have been some people who retake the test every year for a decade before passing. The test itself is 9 hours over two or three days, with some communities shutting down to respect the testing environment. Schools still in session are closed for the two testing days, police officers are present to ensure safety and help traffic congestion for test takers to get to their exam on time, and entire cities quiet down. Similarly to France, students list out the universities they wish to go to before even taking the exam with 3-5 options. This makes for a complicated progress because students are randomly allocated to a university if their results are not good enough to be placed at any of the universities on their list. Their scores also have to align with their preferred university track. For example, a high math score is needed to get into the medical field of study.

All in all, most everything is differently structured when comparing the United States with China in regards to education. However, it is not as disciplined as might be expected. They goof around, joke, talk over each other. Even though the Chinese classroom has a systematically “intense” value system that greatly differs from the United States’, kids are kids no matter where they are.

Anecdotal comments from Michael Smith, journalist at www.legalienate.blogspot.com

Really interesting stuff. I’ve taught in Japan, the U.S., Nicaragua, and spent some long periods in Mexico, so I have an international view of education, too. Japan, Korea, China, kick ass on everything related to math, science, and technology, I mean, the curriculum in the U.S. is just an embarrassment compared to what East Asia is doing in those subjects. I do hear from some of my Chinese students (I teach ESL in adult education) that programmed instruction in China starts so early and is so relentless and all-pervasive that they feel it distorts child development. But the U.S. has the opposite problem – all fluff and no discipline. In adult education we offer the GED – the General Equivalency Diploma for U.S. born adults or foreign students who need to show mastery of high school level education. The test book is a massive tome, 400-500 pages, something like that, and the students MUST master the material or they don’t get their GED. Meanwhile, kids who coast through via social promotion get D’s in everything and graduate on time with no problem. Nobody is particularly concerned that they know nothing at all. If all students had to pass the GED to get their high school diploma, graduation rates would plunge 70 or 80 percent.

I taught in Nicaragua about 35 years ago. Due to the international solidarity around the Sandinista Revolution, Nicaraguan students got offered scholarships to study abroad on a regular basis. I remember one student who came to me asking to learn English so he could be ready to hit the ground running with his scholarship to a European school. “What can I do to be ready?” he asked me. “When do you leave?” I asked him in return. “The day after tomorrow.” “Get a good night’s sleep,” I told him.

This was the level of understanding about foreign language acquisition. The main problem, of course, was mass poverty, which made it hard for the vast majority of Nicaraguans to spend years sitting in classes. They had to work. The curriculum tended to be harshly rhetorical, with lots of references to “imperialist Yankees” dedicated to plunder and deceit, effectively checked by heroes of the Sandinista revolution. Sophomoric, but understandable, given the U.S. role in Central America, i.e., “our backyard.”

Mexico doesn’t do social promotion. The curriculum is more demanding than what the U.S. uses. One of my step-daughters went to primary school in Mexico and then came to the U.S. for high school. Her whole first year she couldn’t speak English, but the curriculum was so easy that she really didn’t lose any ground. By the second  year she DID speak English and found that she had covered most of the curriculum on offer a couple years earlier in Mexico.

Japan is too focused on rote memorization, at least it was in the 1990s when I was there for six years. Their primary school system looked pretty good, though. University was derisively referred to as a “four year vacation,” as students only had to work hard to pass the entrance exam, after which they coasted for four wasted years. Not sure how they’re doing today, but it would be hard to do worse than the U.S.

多省份优化调整少数民族高考加分政策,部分教育资源均衡省份已取消 (baidu.com)

A number of provinces have optimized and adjusted the ethnic minority extra points policy for college entrance examination, and some provinces with balanced education resources have canceled it.

Thepaper.cn 2024-05-09 15:41

In the 2024 college entrance examination, Henan, Fujian, Guizhou, Inner Mongolia, Hunan and other provinces have optimized and adjusted the bonus policy for ethnic minority students as planned.

According to the wechat public account “Henan Release” on May 9, a total of four types of candidates in the Henan College entrance examination in 2024 can obtain college entrance examination bonus points, respectively: children of martyrs, veterans who have won second class honors or above during their service or have been awarded honorary titles by units above the war zone (former Big Military region) plus 20 points; 10 points for retired soldiers who are self-employed; Returned overseas Chinese, children of overseas Chinese, children of returned overseas Chinese, family members of overseas Chinese and Taiwan provincial (including Taiwan household registration) candidates plus 5 points. Among them, if the same candidate meets a number of conditions to increase the score, only the largest one of the score values, and not more than 20 points.

According to the news, compared with the past, the ethnic minority extra points (5 points) project of Henan College Entrance examination in 2024 has been canceled, and the extra points of overseas Chinese families, Hong Kong and Macao compatriots and their families of candidates have been reduced from 10 points to 5 points.

According to the “Notice of Henan Provincial Department of Education and other six Departments on Issuing the Implementation Plan for Further Adjusting and standardizing the College Entrance Examination Extra Points Work in Henan Province” issued by Henan Province in September 2021, it is clear that the minority extra points project will be canceled from 2024. From 2021 to 2023, ethnic minority candidates will still be eligible for extra points, with a bonus point value of 5 points. 2. Starting from 2024, the bonus score of “overseas Chinese family members, Hong Kong and Macao compatriots and their dependents” will be reduced to 5 points; Starting from 2027, this kind of examinee bonus program will be abolished. From 2021 to 2023, the bonus point value for such candidates will remain unchanged at 10 points.

And Fujian, Guizhou, Inner Mongolia, Hunan and other provinces in this year’s college entrance examination, gradually optimize and adjust the ethnic minority college entrance examination examinee bonus policy.

In October 2020, the Implementation Plan of Fujian Province on Further Deepening the Reform of College Entrance Examination Extra Points made it clear that the extra points of ethnic minority candidates will be adjusted from 10 points to 5 points from 2021, and the extra points will be adjusted to ethnic minority candidates in 19 ethnic townships in the province. As well as minority candidates such as high mountains (which enjoy high mountain subsidies) and islands without Bridges and sea walls connected to the mainland. Among them, from 2021 to 2023, ethnic minority candidates’ bonus points can be used for all universities; From 2024 to 2025, ethnic minority candidates’ bonus points will only be used for provincial colleges and universities. The extra points policy for ethnic minority candidates will be abolished from 2026.

In March 2021, Guizhou Province announced an adjustment to the extra points policy for the college entrance examination, which will be officially implemented from 2022. Among them, the additional points areas for ethnic minority college entrance examination candidates are adjusted into three categories, one of which includes Yunyan District, Nanming District, Huaxi District, Wudang District, Baiyun District, Guanshanhu District, Huagang District, Huichuan District, Zunyi City, and Xixiu District, Anshun City. Ethnic minority candidates in this region who will take the college entrance examination from 2022 to 2023 meet the “three unified” principle. That is, candidates who apply for the ethnic minority bonus project must have three years of complete household registration, school status and three consecutive years of actual study in the same county (city, district, special zone) in high school, plus 5 points; Starting in 2024, this bonus will be eliminated in the region.

The second category includes Guiyang Qingzhen City, Xiuwen County, Xifeng County, Kaiyang County, Zunyi City, Chishui City, Bozhou District, Renhuai City, Suiyang County, Tongzi County, Xishui County, Meitan County, Fenggang County, Yuqing County, Zheng ‘an County, Liupanshui City, Zhongshan District, Shuicheng District, Liuzhi Special District, Panzhou City, Anshun City Pingba District, Puding County, Qiandongnan Prefecture Kaili City, Qiandnan Prefecture Duyun City, Non-ethnic autonomous counties under the jurisdiction of Xingyi City, Guian New Area, Bijie City and Tongren City, ethnic minority candidates who meet the conditions of “three unification” will be added 10 points from 2022 to 2023, 5 points from 2024 to 2025, and the project will be cancelled from 2026.

Three categories of regions include Qiandongnan Prefecture, Qiandongnan Prefecture, QiandongXinnan Prefecture under the jurisdiction of other counties (cities) except Kaili City, Duyun City, Xingyi City, ethnic autonomous counties, ethnic minority candidates who meet the conditions of “three unification”, 2022 to 2023 plus 15 points; An additional 10 points from 2024 to 2025; Five points will be added from 2026.

In September 2021, the Implementation Plan of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region on Further Deepening the Reform of College Entrance Examination Extra Points made it clear that the extra points policy for candidates of five ethnic minorities, including Mongolian, Daur, Oroqen, Ewenki and Russian, should adhere to the combination of ethnic factors and regional factors. Adjustments are made in accordance with the principles of “retaining and improving the bonus points of ethnic minority candidates in border areas, mountainous areas, pastoral areas and areas inhabited by ethnic minorities, accurately determining the bonus areas, groups and conditions, and gradually reducing the bonus points.”

The reform of the above five ethnic minority students’ extra points in the college entrance examination in Inner Mongolia is divided into three steps: from 2021 to 2023, the existing candidates’ extra 10 points filing policy will remain unchanged; From 2024 to 2025, the original 10 points will be adjusted to 5 points; Starting from 2026, the 103 flag counties (cities and districts) in the autonomous region will be divided into two categories: A and B. If the five ethnic minority candidates in Class A areas meet the “three unified” requirements that they have complete household registration, school status, and have actually studied in the same flag county (city or district) for three years at the high school stage, they will retain the policy of adding 5 points to the file, and the candidates in Class B areas will no longer score points.

The two categories of areas A and B are delimit according to the implementation scope of “Ethnic minority candidates in border areas, mountainous areas, pastoral areas, and areas inhabited by ethnic minorities” determined by the state, taking into account the popularization of the national standard spoken and written language and the level of education development in the whole region of Inner Mongolia. Among them, Category A areas include 19 border flags (cities), 33 animal husbandry flags (cities) and 3 ethnic minority autonomous flags, excluding duplicate areas and the Union cities and cities with relatively high levels of popularization of national common language and education and development, and a total of 36 flags (cities); Class B areas are other 67 flag counties (cities and districts).

In addition, the “Hunan Province general college enrollment enjoy ethnic preferential policy candidates qualification review Measures” pointed out that in 2023, 2024, ethnic minority candidates in ethnic autonomous areas added 15 points, 2025 college entrance examination added 10 points, for the national enrollment of colleges and universities to use; In 2023 and 2024, ethnic minority candidates in ethnic townships will gain 10 points and be enrolled in provincial colleges and universities in Hunan Province. Extra points will be abolished in the college entrance examination from 2025; In 2023 and 2024, ethnic minority examinees in counties with more than half of the population of ethnic minorities will gain 5 points and be enrolled in provincial universities in Hunan Province; Extra points will be abolished in the college entrance examination from 2025; In 2023 and 2024, Han students in ethnic autonomous areas, more than half of ethnic minority counties and ethnic townships will gain 3 points and be enrolled in provincial colleges and universities in Hunan Province. Extra points will be abolished in the college entrance examination from 2025; In 2023 and 2024, ethnic minority candidates in scattered areas will gain 3 points and be enrolled in provincial colleges and universities in Hunan Province. Extra points will be abolished in the college entrance examination from 2025.

In August 2022, the Central Propaganda Department held the 20th themed press conference of the “China This Decade” series, and Zhang Mou, director of the Policy and Regulation Research Department of the State Ethnic Affairs Commission, introduced the adjustment of the ethnic minority college entrance examination extra points policy in recent years.

He said at the time that since the resumption of the college entrance examination, China has implemented a policy of extra points in the college entrance examination, in which ethnic minority candidates’ extra points are mainly to help areas and groups with relatively weak education receive better education. At present, the adjustment and reform of this policy are mainly based on two reasons: On the one hand, the level of basic education balance has improved significantly in our country, and the educational resources enjoyed by minority students have been continuously optimized; On the other hand, with the development of society, some provinces and regions originally implemented the inclusive bonus policy for ethnic minority examinees in their provinces, but it is no longer accurate enough. Therefore, this round of reform is to more accurately determine the areas, groups, and conditions of bonus points, that is, to enable the policy to effectively benefit those students who need help.

At that time, Zhang Mou introduced that at present, various localities have formulated reform plans according to local conditions, and there are mainly several cases: First, some provinces with relatively balanced education resources have canceled the ethnic minority college entrance examination bonus policy; In the second case, some provinces and autonomous regions will adjust the scope of extra points from border areas, mountainous areas, pastoral areas, ethnic minority areas in the high school education to transfer to the local study of ethnic minority candidates; In the third case, some provinces have cancelled the extra points for ethnic minorities in scattered areas, and the extra points are narrowed to ethnic minority candidates in concentrated areas; The fourth situation, some provinces according to the regional bonus points, meet certain conditions in the region, whether Han candidates or ethnic minority candidates have bonus points. In addition, even in regions that still have bonus points policies, the value of bonus points has been significantly reduced.
