10/18 Reflection on education system

In China, due to a large amount of the population base, students need to study very hard and compete with each other to get into a good university.  Students have to choose one major for their study career at the beginning of sophomore, even they have no idea what’s this major is about. And it’s not easy for them to change the major once you decided. For most students in China, the university is a kind of place for them to learn more some specific skills like STEM than improve their critical thinking.  In people’ mind, the aim of getting into the university is to find a good job after the education. I would say improve students’ critical thinking skills is a better way to teach students. Teach students to have the ability to learn by themselves is more important than some specific skills.
