Subject: Chabuduo Xiansheng
Mr. Chabuduo’s story portrays an opposite version of how westerners would view “the most famous person in China”. Funny how “he casually strolled to the station” when the current images of train stations in Asia are viewed as a crowded fast paced race with rude passengers shoving each other and cutting in line to cheat for a front space. Perhaps Chinese people would dream of the casual life style of Mr. Chabuduo for having the freedom of flexibility.

Subject: China’s Cram Schools
Shocking how the article on China’s cram schools shows images of students with intravenous drips to keep them alert while studying. They are forced to study and the system at Maotanchang prohibits leisure time. It’s quite disturbing to place so much military pressure on students to live up to high expectations and pass the exams. Their mental health is at jeopardy to the point where some students even committed suicide. Most Chinese parents sacrifice a great deal for the future of their only child. Sad to learn of a family’s heartbreak when Cao failed the exam. His father worked overtime just to pay for his Maotanchang costs. Cao’s only other option would be manual labor in the construction site. Hopefully the government establishes laws to protect these students and adds counseling services to support their overall well-being.
