Main focus in Education US's education pays more attention to raise student's self-confidence, independence, spirit of supporting oneself, but China's education emphases on training the students to be strict, rigorous, and spiritual. China's elementary education aims to build the foundation of education with more study and less thought
Changing Majors/ Specialties In America you can change your major however many times you want, whenever you want. Just talk to your student advisor, and they will help you. In China, the student may choose the specialty according to own interest and hobby, but change of specialty in the school is not easy, and transformation of school is more difficult.

Many teachers still adopted old teaching ways in the Chinese universities, thus take a test which needs mechanical memorizing.
