With the deepening of reform and opening-up of our country, many people dream of going abroad for further study. They insist that the modern research facilities, world famous professors and excellent environment in those foreign colleges can help lay a perfect foundation for their future development.
However, there are still many people who favor studying at home. They argue that studying abroad is too expensive and doesn’t pay. They also point out that there are no language and cultural barriers if they study at home.
Both opinions are acceptable in some sense. If students have the chance and financial resources, they should seize the opportunity to study abroad and broaden their eyes. On the other hand, if conditions don’t permit, they can pursue their studies in top universities at home. What counts is not the place where you study, but the desire to learn.
A survey is taken on public opinions of the fact that many parents spend a large amount of money sending their children to study abroad, some of whom are middle school students.
From it we can see that 38 percent of those surveyed think it is worth the money letting children study abroad to get a better education so that they can get pay in return in the future.
However, some are against of it. 62% of them hold the view that it is difficult for young people to live and study in a foreign country. It’s easy for them to get into some bad habits and the cost of education in another country is ten times as much as that at home.
The survey shows that the government should set up different kinds of schools to meet the demands of different children.
