The USA has been lagging behind China and India in terms of economic growth.There are several factors that have been explained in the past. some people attribute it to the difference in the education system in the west and the east.The education systems in the Asian countries are fast advancing.The main reason for this could be that the Asian education system is far more superior. What are your views?

China has been helping us. We have too much debt to have any economic growth. It could very well be the education system in the west. And the difference in values. And how much we help other countries as aposed to how much China and India do. I think there are alot of variables and things I don't really understand. Watch Conspiracy THeory on TruTv on Fridays.

Thanks for sharing your views. In a recently held international test,students from China topped their American peers. Countries like China has raised their teacher's pay,given more choices to its students in terms of curriculum and have improved the standards of the teachers in their school. I agree that there are other variables too. Have a nice day!!

I can see where that would be true. I think the Chinese are probably more disciplined.

Yet the boys and girls of India are running to USA for higher education. How can you say the Asian education system is far more superior than the West. Yes Asian countries are advancing. But still they are lacking behind.

Thanks for responding. The past trend is gradually beginning to reverse at a fast rate. Western education system is no longer superior to that of the Asian countries. China and India including several Asian countries are advancing in all sectors of economy and will greatly contribute to the global economy in near future.

Yes , education system is one of the factors . The society also affects how the young think . Everybody can find at least one factor , but .. it's different to everybody . Depends on your views.
