Analysis of the Differences Between China and the United States in Education

Dezhi GAO


I spent my first year studying in the United States in 2015. Instantly, it was approaching to the end of this year. Looking back on the tough time this year, I suddenly felt that I should write something down. Before I came to America, I had many interviews, among which I always talked about the differences between Chinese and American education by asking and guessing at that time, but now, I still can not find something new. In this document, I put together the answers to the interview questions about the differences between China and the United States in education, which will be combined with my own experience through this year. The following points are my superficial opinions on this issue.


Education; Comparison; Difference
