My friend CrucifiedGuru asked me: http://www.mylot.com/CrucifiedGuru 'It does sound like Chinese students are placed under a lot of pressure to perform certain duties, even those for which they may have no aptitude. I am thinking that this sort of pressure is on them through all of their school years, and that is sad to contemplate. Why it there so much pressure? What is the goal of driving students to perform in this way?' Thank you very much for your further question. It really helps me a lot and gives me good advice on how to continue my introduction. The primary cause is the world-largest population of China. Having gone through the World War II, the former Soviet Union lost a great number of young men and its population became very small. Over time Russia has never been known for its big population. But China is. Even during Qing Dynasty, China already possessed a population of 400,000,000. After the World War II, the Soviet Union encouraged people to procreate to relieve the population crisis. And China, though also losing lots of young men during the war, still has a large population. But at that time, because of the same ideology, China took after Russia in every respect regradless of its actual situation. The women who gave birth to many children are awarded the title of 'Hero Mother' just like in Russia. As a consequence, the population of China was increasing via an exponential growth just like what Malthus said. And now China has had a population of over 1,300,000,000. We all have learnt market economy. This situation is called 'seller's market'. The world-largest population, the oppressing education system drive students to perform this way. Thanks to the large population, the education system gets evern more oppressing. But that is not all. According to the Chinese tradition, parents are indeed requested to be strict with their children in their schoolwork. The final reason is the history of China.
