For whatever reason the practice of sending children seems to be followed by some very public parents - many of whom do not ostensibly have the means to do so. A similar dilemma exists in the UK. A parent will always choose and encourage the perceived best for a child within their means. What does that tell us? China's universities are not perceived as the best yet. No doubt they are academically easily top tier for knowledge, but the breadth of experience, culture and certainly innovation and cross cultural networking - there is a way to go yet and there will be until we see floods of overseas students paying similar fees to study in China. Assuming they would be allowed to. Such an influx might be perceived as a dangerous precedent and an infiltration of inferior foreign ideas!
