Lei, Li
Online Submission
What does "education" mean? According to the dictionary, "to educate" means "to bring up and train the mind and way of thinking." Education is an important thing which can brighten people's minds and expand their knowledge. To some degree, the educational systems of two big countries in the world, the United Kingdom (UK) and China, are very complicated. They both have advantages and disadvantages in each phase of education. This document provides a brief comparison of the educational systems in the UK and China relating to the following levels of education: (1) Primary Education; (2) Secondary Education; and (3) Higher Education. It provides suggestions for how the educational systems in each country could be improved, concluding that education is one of the most basic, yet most important elements in a society, thus countries need to try to improve their educational systems to the extent possible.
