in pursuit of education…

March 7, 2007

In China everyone wants to send their kids to College. In Yantai city, which is on the coast of Shandong, more than 20,000 students lined up to attend a College Recruiting Fair. Over 240 police officers were needed to help control the crowd. The sad thing is for those who even managed to get inside and sign up for some school, after graduation they still have to fight for a job. In one case 600 college graduates were competing for 5 toll booth operator positions.
