Terence R. Egan's curator insight, April 16, 7:34 PM

This infographic is interesting but perhaps not as informative as might be thought.


1. Much of the data is outdated (1999 is an eon ago in China). The education system has undergone massive change since 2000. 


2. Aspects of China's education system bare little relationship to that of the west. Making any comparison based on quantitative data is fraught with error and misjudgment.


3. The data will not always be reliable and will be subjective to various local idiosyncracies in definition and collection methods. 


4. The assumed impacts of these numbers on the economy and on society may be starkly different to the consequences that might be felt in the west. The structure of China's economy and society is very different to most developed nations. It's critically important (in the real sense of the expression) to take off your western glasses before making any prognostications. 


Having said that, I'm grateful to the authors. I hope there's an opportunity to build on this one.
