1. Fewer administrators and more educators is what our colleges need
THE great rocket scientist, Qian Xuesen, who passed away earlier this month, lamented the failure of our education system, and asked why such a huge apparatus with billions spent on it and millions working hard in it couldn't produce top-notch scholars. That negative question is still ringing in the ears of Chinese education officials and university presidents.
Last week, 11 university professors in Anhui province wrote to newly-appointed Education Minister Yuan Guiren and to their colleagues in education to ask that they all confront Qian's question and do something to improve the Chinese education system.
2. Correct level of cool on campus （校园里烂漫有度）
If you're looking for romance at Nanjing Forestry University, you'd better take cover. University authorities have deployed “Campus Patrols”, whose job is to keep young couples safely and squarely apart. Any displays of affection are met with a firm “reminder” until the couple acquiesce.
What are China's Romeos and Juliets to do? We all know that love makes the world go round. Or, rather, as scientists tell us, it's not love, but hormones that make young lovers everywhere oblivious to everything but themselves. And hormones can make us go around and do crazy things.
