Differences in Education Western Education push for lateral thinking, Chinese teachers push for repetition Many Chinese students stay in touch with their teachers/tutors long after they have left school. In America we may visit a teacher, but we rarely become close friends outside of school with an old teacher of ours. Education in China plays a big role in the family lives of the students. Many of their hobbies are sacrificed so they can study harder. In America many students juggle homework and another activity outside of school.
