Transforming China From Within: Chinese Students Head To American Universities

China’s economy is growing. So is the country’s university system. However, the latter still lags behind the U.S. and other Western nations. With few spots available at top schools, Chinese students increasingly are heading to America for higher education.

While recently playing tourist in Beijing I spoke to a number of young Chinese. They tend to be bright and inquisitive, ambitious and nationalistic.

This educational exodus benefits Americans as well as Chinese.
