BEIJING: Despite China enjoying an economic miracle for over the past three decades, much of China's rural poor remain in dire poverty. Yes, the Chinese do emphasize education, but it focuses on tests, not training its citizens for better job skills.
Conservative Action Alerts reports that, "However, the Chinese government should take an alternative educational approach and shun a focus on tests and university enrollment for its rural citizens. They can be encouraged to learn more technical skills so they can build a more sustainable country and the economy nationwide can reach its full potential."
Chaities, companies and government agencies can work together to launch a strong network of trade schools in the rural regions of the country.
According to Conservative Action Alerts, "A good solution would be to build an intricate network of trade schools where students can receive government-recognized certification upon completing a program. Most likely, graduates will be expected to work in blue collar jobs, such as a car mechanic, home contractor, plumber, electrician or appliance repairperson, but that’s good news for farmers. They have already proven themselves as hardworking and good with their hands. They just need more technical expertise to move forward."
The future looks bright for China's economy, but more is needed to develop the country.
