Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a description of the speech made by a middle school student under the National Flag in Qidong Middle School, Jiangsu Province. According to surveys, Chinese children ranked the lowest in the world in terms of their computing ability and their creativity. Besides, none of the Nobel Prize winners was the fruit of the education system in China. The students cannot realize the greatness of one's teachers either. They keep pushing the students for the sake of a college enrollment rate, either giving the students extra classes or endless homework. They claim that they are doing these for students' own good, but sometimes they don't even notice when the students are sick while still blaming the students for missing homework. No wonder according to a survey, 90" of the graduates never go back to see their teachers after they leave the school.
