Product Description:

Chinese culture places a huge emphasis on the value of getting a top education, but the privatization of Chinese universities in 1997 changed the landscape of higher education. Higher education became a commodity that drastically drove up the price of obtaining a degree. At some schools, the cost of getting a degree is equal to about 60 years of personal income. Even with these startling tuition figures, many Chinese students still saw the value in having a degree that has resulted in millions of graduates who cannot find work. The emphasis on doing whatever is necessary to obtain a degree in China is driven by the notion that education lifts a person out of poverty. Now, the opposite is true in China where graduates are burdened by debt and unable to find adequate work. A university education effectively places a person into poverty. This DVD is part of the larger series, Why Poverty?
