International schools and International Hospitals catering to Westerners have made life a lot easier for Westerners in China.
Domestically, both are in crisis.
The Chinese school system is archaic, relies heavily on rote memorization, and criticism of kids and parents are their only two tools to improve performance seemingly. Chinese brain drain is heavily influenced by this weakness. Upper middle class parents leave to get their kids away from this.
Hospitals are overburdened. You can see the harried look on the workers faces. There are just not enough resources to meet the need.
Needs and consumable cash for these are growing dramatically.
Chinese people are distressed about these problems, and something needs to give. Surely, Western help is needed all around the periphery and more and more closer to the core.
Anything to add?
