Amid rigorous and tough education programs in China, an increasing dilution of Chinese talent is mapped out in this 'Export of Studies' infographic.
The education system in the East is very different from those of Western nations. It is not uncommon for children as young as 3 years old to have to interview to gain acceptance into their kindergarten of choice. As they get older, the process gets increasingly competitive, creating a studious and unimaginably hard-working and high-pressure culture. As cited in Export of Studies, parents are looking to escape a linear and tightly focused system in favour of the more individual-centered and creativity-encouraging schools of the West.
With the United States, the U.K. and Canada receiving the most students, it seems China will have to make some modifications to its curriculum to retain the talent of its young.
