Goals of Education in Asian and American Cultures. Reflective Essay #2
Cummings, Alexandra
Online Submission
Traditional Chinese proverbs such as: "The sea of learning knows no bounds; only through diligence may its shore be reached" and "If you don't succeed, try again." (p. 296) illustrate that educational success in the Asian culture is viewed as the result of a single notion--"hard work". This paper will examine how this and other key educational goals differ in the American and the Asian cultures.
