A Turning Point at High School


 Image Credit: Google.com
High School during 1985-1986 is tough, 
no dating is allowed in China...
students face pressure 
and may not understand peer jealousy..
That kind of education system makes students news blind...
Jingle feels grateful for what the teacher did...



High school was stressful for students,
Jingle'd spent all of her time studying
subjects related materials, she didn't
realize the concept of jealousy
until this teacher brought a newspaper
to class, showed an article to students:
Jealousy can be understood and handled...
After that, Jingle stopped blaming herself
for being picked sometimes...
what helpful realization.

well, modern students may not understand how close-minded folks in another part of the world can be.

No dating is allowed during 1983-1986, Jingle had to study hard.

she tried to make it to college, because one had to take national entrance exams in six subjects, score high enough to get permission to be admitted to college...

So the grading and exam writing are national and consistent, which makes the competition fair, meanwhile, of course, city students are given relatively lower bottom line in recruiting...

for example: Jingle needs to score 525 out of 620 to be admitted to a first class Beijing university, since she lived out side of the city, Beijing citizens only need to score 475 or above to be admitted to the same university...

any way, Jingle felt lucky to be able to make it to the capital city...her score is among top 3 among 40 students in her major..

Thoughtful information,

Americans may never know or understand how things work back in another country.

hopefully, this gives educators a window to feel how air has different temperature outside the window.
