"Chinese Educational System Engulfed In Corruption: NY Times" Article Response

Dan Levin, a reporter for the New York Times, went to Beijing to study China's educational system. It was there he discovered just how much the Chinese government influences and corrupts its own schools via bribery. Students who come from a wealthy family have an advantage over other students. From admissions to the seat in the front of the class, any tidbit that can give a student an edge can be obtained, as long as your wallet is fat. Since when can success in one's future be guarunteed based on wealth at birth? I'll tell you when; when people have been born into royalty in the middle ages. There was a reason why that didn't work then, and there's little reason to revert back to those old-time concepts. Success is something that is earned, not bought.
