Drama Rainbow: Creative discovery for kids

The young CEO, who earned a master's degree in management from Coventry University in Britain after an MBA at Beijing Jiaotong University, was well adjusted to China's exam-driven educational system.

It requires "a balanced performance in various subjects for a higher score", she notes.

Yet the beneficiary of that education began to reflect on the system when she noticed the education of her friend's five-year-old son during her stay in Britain.

Billing herself as "good at observing and thinking", Wang said she was amazed by Britain's approach to childhood education so different from that in China.

She began learning about the theory of drama in education and developed a keen interest in vanguard education.

After she had her own child in 2007, she realized that China's existing educational system could not tap her daughter's maximum potential.

The current system, like mass production, lacks of personalized adjustments. "She may be made mediocre in every aspect, but not brilliant where she does best."

Wang said she found that her daughter is not a lone case. Many of her friends share the concern.

She noted prominent performance of Chinese-born students in the US and European schools. "The growth of same seeds is different due to different soils."

As a result, she imported the concept of drama in education and founded Drama Rainbow in 2009.
