The Increase In Enrollment and The Rise of Tuition Fees

Uploaded by realturtle on Aug 28, 2002

Not long ago, the entrance exam to college was compared to a single plank-bridge, which a largh numbers of soldiers were squeezing through, and the month in which the exam is held is called the " Black July".

Recently, the United Nations made a survey on school entry percentage in many countries, and here is the result. The percentage of the elementary school entry is 99% in both America and China, but the percentage of students entering college in China falls to 9%, while in America it's 80%, and the average rate of the developing countries is 9.6%.

So no matter how careful you are, you can't avoid knocking down or bumping into something when you walk in the room. But "the merits outweigh the defects", since the problem can be solved by other means.

A solution to the latter problem is the rise of tuition fees. With the money, more dormitories and classrooms will be built and more teachers can be employed. However, this solution brings another problem, that is, there are so many students who can't afford the increased tuition fees. They may come from the rural area or the laid-off worker families, and they may...
