12-year Compulsory Education
||Education is one of the most important signals indicating the competitiveness of a country. The original purpose of education is helping children find their talents and keep curious toward things. However, we always fail in education revolution consequently. The government tried to ease the stress of the academic pressure through extending|
compulsory education, which was sadly a good intention gone bad. This policy came along with several educational revolutions such as renewing the admission policies of entrance examination. These policies do not do any good but letting students, parents and teachers wondering around without a clear path.
This study uses interviews and literature review to collect data. By systems thinking and causal loop diagrams, we have a whole side view of the open admission in 12-year compulsory education. We provide an integrated viewpoint instead of break into parts, and then we analyze the cross effect of it in detail. We start our survey from the anxiety of the parents to the feedback from public and private schools, and the confusion of the teachers; finally the effect on society and cram schools.
Life finds ways. The result shows that the parents get their children to private schools because they don’t know the open admission in 12-year compulsory education well enough. In that, the academic stress in private school increase. Some parents can’t afford the tuition and miscellaneous fees of the private schools. In consequence, the rich are richer and the poor are poorer. Numbers of cram schools also reach the peak.
