PERSONAL NOTE: During my 7 years as a visiting professor in mainland China, I continued to tell my students and some parents that NOT all students should attend colleges or universities. China has too many students with paper degrees, but what China needs is people with skills to help develop the country. It makes sense that the Chinese government is finally paying attention to this critical sector of the education in China.
