Education System in China

As an ancient civilization with a history of 5,000 years, China has always been attaching great importance to its education. Confucianism and the imperial examination system have a great impact on China’s education. The current strategy of rejuvenating China through science and education puts science, technology and education as China’s priorities. International exchanges and cooperation promote China’s education to a deeper and further level. Not only does it play an important role in inheriting and developing the traditional Chinese culture, but also makes tremendous contributions to the development of world civilization.

I. Status

At present, China's education system mainly includes pre-school education, compulsory education, special education, high school education, higher education, adult training, literacy education and private education.
Pre-school education refers to the education in kindergartens for 3 to 5-year-old children
Compulsory education is also referred to as free education, including primary and middle school education, lasting nine years generally, six years in primary school and three in middle school (“6+3 system”), yet with exceptions.
China has basically formed its own special education development pattern, with special education schools as the backbone, regular classes or special classes in ordinary schools as the main form, and sending teachers to families, homeschooling and community education as a supplement.
China’s high school education, including regular high schools, regular technical secondary schools, adult secondary technical schools, vocational high schools and technical schools, is an important part of the national education system.

Literacy education refers to the process of teaching the illiterate or the semi-illiterate to grasp basic skills of reading, writing and reckoning.
China’s private education, also known as non-public education, is a form of education in contrast to public education or state-run education. It refers to the schools and other educational institutions run by non-state social organizations or individuals using non-fiscal funds for the purpose of benefiting society.

The Rise of China’s Education System

Anyone who studies the 30-year development of China's education is likely to be surprised by its stunning scale and remarkable pace. An open, inclusive, and vigorous society is the prerequisite that ensures the accelerated growth of an education system. During the last three decades education has transformed the nation and Chinese society.
Over 14 million teachers in more than 520 thousand schools dedicate and devote themselves to the cause of education and to their 257 million students. There can be no doubt that this is the key step in the process of changing China from a country with a big population into a country rich in human resources. Nor can it be ignored that China's education system is the largest in the world, and the pace of development of its 30-year education undertaking is the fastest in history.
In the space of thirty years, China's education system has transformed from one access to an elite to one accessible by the masses. For instance, the higher education entrance rate in the 1980s was less than four percent. In 2002, the figure had reached fifteen percent, an internationally recognized mark that signaled a new stage of China's education development: mass education. By 2013 the rate had soared to 35%.

China's Traditional Cultural Values

The cultural values of a country influence its national psychology and identity. Citizens’ values and public opinions are conveyed to state leaders through the media and other information channels, both directly and indirectly influencing decisions on foreign policy. The traditional cultural values that influence the psyche of the Chinese people are harmony, benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, honesty, loyalty, and filial piety.
Of these, the core value is harmony. Harmony means “proper and balanced coordination between things” and encompasses rationale, propriety, and compatibility. Rationale refers to acting according to objective laws and truths. Propriety indicates suitability and appropriateness. The value of harmony advocates “harmony but not uniformity.” Properly coordinating different things by bringing them together in the appropriate manner allows them to develop from an uncoordinated state to one of coordination; from asymmetry to symmetry, and from imbalance to balance. Modern Chinese society tries to maintain harmony between humankind and nature; between people and society; between members of different communities; and between mind and body.
Benevolence, the core value of Confucianism, extends from the importance of familial ties and blood connections and is held in high esteem by the Chinese. “A peaceful family will prosper (jiahe wanshi xing, 家和万事兴)” is a famous and widely embraced saying. This benevolence, although based in familial ties, extends to friendships and social relationships, producing a full set of values that include justice, courtesy, wisdom, honesty, loyalty, self-discipline, and commitment.
Righteousness refers to justice and correctness. As Confucius said, “the gentleman understands what is moral; the small man understands what is profitable (junzi yu yu yi, xiaoren yu yu li, 君子喻于义,小人喻于利).” There are not only individual benefits but also collective and social benefits. All people should seek what benefits both the individual and society. As two Chinese sayings put it, “Everybody is responsible for the rise or fall of the country (tianxia xingwang, pifu youze, 天下兴亡,匹夫有责)” and “Be the first to show concern and the last to enjoy yourself (xian tianxia zhi you er you, hou tianxia zhi le er le, 先天下之忧而忧,后天下之乐而乐).” If the country suffers foreign invasions and perils, the people should “expel the foreign invaders [and] resuscitate the Chinese nation (quchu dalu, huifu Zhonghua, 驱除鞑虏,恢复中华),” brandishing their weapons and struggling for the glory of the country.
Courtesy stresses modesty and prudence. It is about respecting laws and preventing misconduct. Traditional Chinese culture respects the importance of rites and has special rates for various occasions, such as the emperor’s sacrifice to heaven, the common people’s sacrifice to ancestors, weddings, funerals, and courteous exchanges. As the saying goes, “It is impolite not to return what one receives (lai er buwang fei li ye, 来而不往非礼也).” Confucius particularly stressed courtesy in daily life.
Wisdom requires that one distinguish right from wrong, place capable people in suitable positions, know oneself, and be resourceful. Confucius said, “Benevolence means to love and wisdom means to understand others renzhe airen, zhizhe zhiren, 仁者爱人,智者知人).” One must have a loving heart to love others, and one must have the wisdom to understand others. People should have not only a loving heart but also wisdom to distinguish good from evil and right from wrong. They should have the wisdom and resourcefulness to control evil and promote good.
A number of prominent figures who loved and understood others have carved their names into Chinese histories, such as Wei Qing (卫青), the Han dynasty general during the reign of Emperor Wudi; Wei Zheng (魏征), the Tang dynasty prime minister during the reign of Emperor Taizong; Hai Rui (海瑞), an honest and upright Ming dynasty official; Qi Jiguang (戚继光), a famous Ming dynasty general who fought Japanese pirates; and two upright Northern Song dynasty officials, Kou Zhun (寇准) and Bao Zheng (包拯).
Honesty refers to trustworthiness, integrity, and credibility. “People should obtain their fortunes reasonably and properly through their labor,” said Confucius, “ and not through fraudulence and cheating.” He emphasized honesty in daily behavior. Honesty is a moral virtue greatly valued by the Chinese. Many Confucian businessmen insisted on the principle of honesty in running enterprises in the past and established time-honored brands.
Loyalty stresses service to the motherland. It is an emotion and a value that evolves from blood ties and means that in cases of foreign invasion citizens should exert all efforts to protect their country as they would protect their own homes. Loyalty also means faithfulness to family and friends.
Filial piety is another important value in Confucianism. According to Confucius, “Respecting and supporting the family’s senior members and handling their funeral affairs (zunlao, jinglao, yanglao, songlao, 尊老、敬老、养老、送老)” are duties of younger generations, and “caring for the old and nurturing the young (lao you duo yang, shao you suo yi, 老有所养,少有所依)” are fundamental family virtues.

6 Types of Chinese Classical Arts

It is generally agreed that there are 6 types of classical arts: poetry, dance, music, painting, architecture and sculpture; poetry further gives birth to literary essays, fiction and drama.

Dance

As early as 7,000 or 8,000 years ago, Chinese ancestors had already started dancing, and use it as part of their community activity. In the Shang period, dance became a main component of ceremonies involving prayer and worship. Court dance started during that period. Court dance reached its peak in the Tang Dynasty. The influence of the Tang Dynasty dance spread as far as Korea, Japan and Persia; one can find even today the charm of the Tang Dynasty dance in the dances of those countries.
Chinese dancing includes both martial and civil dances, dancing with empty hands and dancing with weapons. In the more simple folk art, dancers would wield various instruments while dancing, including sickles, axes, umbrellas, straw hats and scarves. The use of sleeves and their extensions, long scarves, also contributed to unique forms of dancing.
Folk dancing was sometimes specific to a region: the lion dance in Hebei and Guandong Provinces, the tea-picking dance in Yunnan Province, the great yangge in the northeast, and so on. All of these have different characteristics.

Music

The "Six Classical Arts" at which Confucius was adept included music. He put learning music as one of the important components of education.
The chime bells of the Warring States Period prove that the twelve-note octave, including half-tones, was already known and employed by the Chinese some 2,000 years ago. In the Han Dynasty, not only had Han instruments, like the Zhong (chime bells), di (flute), Sheng, Zheng, qin and we become very popular, but ethnic instruments like the konghou, pipa, tongbo, yunluo and huqin were also introduced. All employed in orchestras, these came to become China's folk instruments.
After the Song and Yuan Dynasties, instrumental music and singing converged in a single production along with dramatic speaking. Music in the Yuan Dynasty was divided into the music of the south, and the north. The Kunqu Opera originated in the Ming Dynasty, and the Qing Dynasty had its Beijing Opera.
Ballads from different places, like the "Hua'er" of the Qinghai and Gansu Provinces, folk songs from Sichuan Province and "Xin Tian You" of the northwest, all have their own characteristics.

Painting

The country already had highly-developed painting techniques by the Neolithic age at the latest.
The discoveries of ancient rock drawings of the Red Mountain Culture all prove that early Chinese had already started using pictures to express their imaginative thoughts. Paintings of the Han Dynasty are of precise, simple lines, expressing imaginative themes, exerting a profound influence upon painters of later ages. Paintings in the Wei and Jin Dynasties mostly concern Buddhist themes. Paintings of the Tang Dynasty, whether depicting human shapes and faces or scenery, had reached an even higher state. In the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, paintings made by the literati were popular.
Chinese painting pays great attention to the precision of ink lines and strives for vividness and contrast. The integration of painting, poetry, calligraphy and seals is unique in the world of art.

Sculpture

One can see that many utensils unearthed from the Shang and Zhou Dynasties are really sculptures, and the beautiful patterns on ancient cooking vessels are also works of sculpture. Examples from the Qin, Han, Wei, Jin, Tang and Song Dynasties portray the beauty of the sculptors' skills even more dramatically. The Terracotta Army, excavated from the mausoleum of the first emperor of Qin, is called the Eighth Wonder of the World. Huge statues of Buddhas, Arhats, Bodhisattvas, deities and demons are legion.
In the themes of ancient Chinese sculpture, apart from religion and works done to accompany dead emperors to the afterlife, there also included some works treating everyday subjects. From many regions, one can see human figurines of different styles, figurines of the performers in operas and other people of various identities. Other popular themes were animals: oxen, horses, dogs, pigs, bears, tigers and lions.

Poems

Chinese poems originated very early in the country's history. Work songs, prayers in religious ceremonies and songs of romantic love could all be both sung and recited. Ancient myths and legends, the earliest epics, were a great source of the literature of the country. Classic of Poetry was the first written collection of poems in China. It is said that Classic of Poetry was compiled by Confucius. After Classic of Poetry came Chu Ci (or The Poetry of Chu: The Songs of the South) a compilation of the works of Q Yuan and his followers. Qu Yuan's works significantly influenced Chinese poetry of later ages. Poems in the form of ballads from the Eastern and Western Han Dynasties came after Chu Ci. Poems and ballads of the Wei, Jin, Southern and Northern Dynasties were very popular at that time. In the Tang Dynasty, a more modern style named Lshi (a classical poem of eight lines) developed very quickly. Poems of the Tang Dynasty became the most colorful chapter of Chinese literature, and hold an important position in the whole history of literature. After the poems of the Tang Dynasty, there came the Ci poetry of the Song Dynasty. Poets of this age were skilled in the use of alternating long and short sentences. In the Yuan Dynasty, the style of poetry changed, and San Qu (a type of opera with tonal patterns modeled after tunes drawn from folk music) became quite popular.
Chinese prose before the Qin and Han Dynasties was mostly concerned with history and philosophy. Works describing the various schools of thought of the Pre-Qin Period, and related historical accounts have been generally of high quality. Historical Records, written by Sima Qian, has been called the outstanding representative of prose of the Han Dynasty. Another scholar of the Han Dynasty, Sima Xiangru, was also a famous man of letters. The prose in the Wei and Jin Dynasties use parallelism liberally and lay special emphasis on the selection of beautiful words and the forming of symmetrical sentences. The eight prose masters of the Tang and Song Dynasties, and later those of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, all made significant contributions, leaving many famous works for posterity.
Chinese novels mostly derive from the script s of street performers. Legends from the Tang Dynasty and storytellers' script s in the Song Dynasty had already taken on an embryonic novel form. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, Chinese classical novels became fully mature. Existing script s show that Chinese drama during the Southern Song Dynasty had already become mature, and gained even greater development in the Yuan Dynasty. Now, types of dramas from different places of China number over 300, from the "living fossils of the theater" such as the Nuo Opera of Guizhou Province (the Mask drama), the Tibetan Opera, and the Pu Xian Opera in Fujian Province, to the so-called state treasure, the Beijing Opera - the whole spectrum is treasures of the theater.

Chinese Aesthetics

Since traditional Chinese philosophy has as an ideal attaining harmony between human beings and heaven, and as humans are part of nature, it is appropriate for the Chinese people to pay great attention to the harmony between their own creations and nature. Therefore, the main road of Chinese art has followed is basically simplicity. So, Chinese aesthetics sees recovering one's original purity and simplicity as the highest state of beauty. Only if, before creating a work of art, the artist gathers imagination and inspiration, understands all the phenomena on earth from the standpoint of simplicity, and tastes the multicolored nature of purity, can he claim to possess the spirit of beauty? As long as it is simple, plain, sincere, and full of imagination, it will be appreciated by the Chinese people. Recovering and maintaining one's original purity and simplicity, while upholding nature, the vividness of presentation, balance and harmony are the essentials of Chinese art.
Chinese works of art, especially literature and drama, pay a great deal of attention to moral evaluation. China's works of art squarely face reality and make life-like portrayals, they are also replete with a colorful imagination. The artists always maintain a sense of detachment from their creations, being at once inside the art and also outside the art. This sense of distance is one of the unique aspects of Chinese art. Chinese artwork very much emphasizes stirring the imagination of the audience. The artists try their best to immerse the audience and make them participate in their creations.

Chinese Food Culture

As a country that pays great attention to courtesy, our cuisine culture is deep-rooted in China's history. As a visitor or guest in either a Chinese home or restaurant, you will find those table manners are essential and the distinctive courtesies displayed will invariably add to the enjoyment of your meals and keep you in high spirits!

Respect First

It is really an admirable custom to respect others at the table, including the aged, teachers and guests while taking good care of children.
Chinese people stress filial piety all the time. The practice of presenting the best or fine food first to the senior members of the family has been observed for countless generations. In ancient times the common people led a needy life but they still tried their best to support the elder mother or father who took it for granted.
Although the hosts in China are all friendly and hospitable, you should also show them respect. Before starting to eat dinner, the host may offer some words of greeting. Guests should not start to eat until the host says, 'Please enjoy yourself' or something like that, otherwise, it suggests disrespect and causes displeasure.
When hosts place dishes on the table, they will arrange the main courses at the center with the supporting dishes evenly placed around them. When the main dishes are prepared in a decorative form either by a cut or other means they will be placed facing the major guests and elder people at the table. This also embodies virtue.

On Chopsticks

China is the hometown of chopsticks. The culture of chopsticks has a long history in China. The tradition of using chopsticks as tableware was introduced to many other countries in the world such as Vietnam, North Korea and South Korea.
The invention of chopsticks reflects the wisdom of Chinese ancient people. A pair of chopsticks, though they look simple, can nip, pick, rip and stir food. Nowadays, chopsticks are considered to be lucky gifts for marriage and other important ceremonies.

At Important Moments

To celebrate the birthday is an important moment in one's life. When one is young, usually he will eat noodles before his birthday, because the long noodles indicate the longevity in China, and birthday cake on an actual day. After middle age, his birthday will grander. In addition to the above, peaches in many forms will be added symbolizing the longevity and immortality, as well as delightful couplets and candles.
On the wedding day, it is also customary to serve dates, peanuts, longan and chestnuts together as a wish that the couple will soon have a baby in accord with the Chinese proclamation.
To most Chinese people, returning home after long absence or departure from home are both significant and there are dining customs associated with this. The return home is greeted with noodles and off home while a farewell is offered with dumplings. This is especially popular in northeast China.
During the Dragon Boat Festival, though many people cannot reach the river zone to watch the boat race, almost all of them eat zongzi, a pyramid-shaped dumpling made of glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves. The festival on that day it is to venerate the patriotic poet Qu Yuan and the people fearing his body would be eaten by the fishes, threw Zongzi into the river to feed the fishes so that they wouldn't bite Qu Yuan's body. Now Zongzi is made in various shapes and sorts.
On the eighth day of the last month in the Chinese lunar calendar, people will enjoy a nourishing porridge called 'La Ba Zhou'. In ancient times, monks would kindly share all sorts of grains with people and made them flavorful porridge on this particular day. People still keep this convention.
In Central China, when a baby is born, the happy father will send red boiled eggs to announce the news. Eggs with a black pointed end and dots in an even number such as six or eight indicate a boy's birth; those without a black point and in an odd number like a five or seven will say the baby is a girl.
In addition to these, fish has always been used to suggest the accumulation of prosperity and wealth with meals on New Year's Eve.

Wangfujing Street in Winter

The Qingming Festival

The Qingming Festival also called Tomb Sweeping Day is the most important holiday for Chinese to remember the deceased. It occurs on April 5 this year, and the festival that comes with a three-day holiday will see many people returning to their hometowns to sweep the tombs. As one of the 24 Chinese solar terms, the traditional festival also has a close relationship with agriculture. As temperatures start to rise and rainfall increases, it is the time for plowing and sowing in the spring.
However, Qingming is not only about commemorating the dead and farming. Nature is awakening everywhere during this period. Trees will turn green, flowers will blossom, and the sun will shine brighter. It is a good time to go out and appreciate the beauty of nature as the weather warms up. This is not a modern interpretation. The custom of spring outings during Qingming Festival can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907).
