10 facts about Chinese education I learned while being a teacher in China

I think this educational system is wrong, I have also experience in this subject and I have found children suffer because of pressure from school and parents. ''No chance for European to compete with Chinese students?'' Is it a bit cruel to say?

Can't believe you can post without any reason?

Some part is not truth. There is no one can slap student in China, because it’s illegal.

Teacher will no longer can teach in his or her whole life, also will be sent to jail.

It sounds like this article was heavily influenced by the author's individual experience, which may not in all cases be an accurate reflection of the larger education system as a whole. Sever of the listed facts look correct to me; lack of central heating in the southern half of the country, long school days, long midday breaks, warm ups, respect for teachers, importance of class rankings, teacher centered classrooms with a stress on memorization. However some things appear distorted to me.
1. As Yewen Zhu noted above corporal punishment is illegal, and teachers can get in serious trouble for it, that does not mean it does not happen, but it is certainly not school policy.
2. My understanding is that public schools are generally considered superior to private schools because the public schools have stricter entry requirements while most private schools take anyone who can pay.
3. I may be wrong, but I don't think Kungfu schools are not as common as the author implies. I believe they are more of a special option that some people choose.

I am used to learn at a chinese school, and the school i was learning at is 100% worse than the schools at the U.S

1. during the breaks, all you can do is read a book and wait for it to be over. I was just visiting so I was lucky to find there was an english book, though only 1. And believe me, it is not fun to read a 5 year old book 10 times a day

2. you can't really do anything during lunch, but i do not know what the food is since i leave at lunch.

3. in the bathroom there isn't any stalls for the boys room, and my sister told me there is no door in the girls bathroom

These are all the things from my school, but i don't know if the other schools do this too.
