How Elementry Students Were Treated In China.

928 words - 4 pages

"Man, this is horrible! I never thought it would be this bad!" thought by me as I was nervously standing at the corner of the front classroom sweating. Do not even think about this as a speech project or debate tournament or anything like it. This is instead a punishment, a punishment for talking in class; a punishment that severely affects a student's physical and mental development; and a punishment that should be stopped.Retrospectively thinking about five years ago, life was ridiculous. That was when I was still in China and enduring that never-going-to-end type of middle school life. Evil and more evil is all that I can use to describe it. No one could ever imagine how strict the middle school system could be in China and they would shake and twist and punch their own head completely without control that the "No way!" coming out of their mouth simultaneously would even seem impossible to distinguish.Normally when someone thinks about a middle school teacher, they would have kindness, gentleness, loveliness and all sort of positive characteristics filled up in their minds. But the situation takes a complete U-turn when it comes to those extremely strict Chinese middle school teachers. Pure evil is not how I describe them, they are nice and kind people like most of us, and they all have one common purpose: to lead their kids to success. It is only that the way they manage to achieve this goal comes out to be too severe for most kids to accept. Being a middle school student in China is not a simple task, it is more likely being in an Army that starts with severe training lessons: everyone has to sit up straight, leaving their hands behind their backs at all time, and yes, I mean all time, of course with the exception of attempting to answer questions, in which case the elbow has to be laid on the desk and made a perfect 90 degree angle with the forearm.When being called on, the student has to stand up, lay his hands along his pants, and answer the question with a full-time eye contact and clear and distinguished voice. Well, this can get much worse, if a student is being called on but not being able to answer the question correctly, it is then time for some real physical pain. The teacher is going to take out a long piece of wooden stick and point it right at your head, and yes, it would not be to difficult to guess what is going to happen next. The so-called "stick" method for "opening up the brain" makes the students endure, and the teachers enjoy. Still, worst is still to come, without mentioning cleaning the bathroom, running 5 laps for...
