Chinese students around the country hold mass rallies to prepare for the upcoming Gaokao university entrance examination. The rally is intended to show the will and determination of the students in beating the exam and getting into their dream school. The videos show students shouting in unison slogans such as: “I will succeed”, “We will bring pride to the school”, and “For college, for honor, for parents, for teachers, fight, fight, fight!”

After Gaokao what do they have left?

wqerwqer21342134:

These gestures look like the Germans in WWII.

腾讯QQ_空蝉自鸣:

Sigh, I really don’t know what to say. Does going to college mean everything will be great in the future? Is going to college your dream? College… even after going, you still won’t know what direction the future will take you. In this materialistic, money above all else [society/world], where a mobile phone never leaves your hands and human relationships are cold and indifferent, can we still find a hint of childish innocence [idealism]?

优酷院线72393713:

Haha, talk about deceiving oneself and others. A retarded generation.

影视部落:

Even North Korea doesn’t do things like this.

爱迪生梦游仙境:

Schools keep using Hengshui No. 2 High School [see below] as a model for us [students] to emulate. from. An educational system that emulates the military has made students dense, destroyed the zest that should be part of their youth. Is the Gaokao the sole purpose of life? What do the students have in their heads besides studying? Is this what education reform has resulted in?

iceman537:

Aren’t they still going to be unemployed after graduating from college, or just making 3000 kuai a month, not enough to support even themselves? Everyone [the students], just give it a rest and stop shouting/chanting [such rally slogans]…

孟孟头发短:

This kind of education system cannot produce innovative talent, but instead obedient and disciplined [able to follow guidelines] children. China’s students are only good at taking tests.

诺爸诺妈:

That the education system has become this, I don’t know whether to be happy or be sad. May your 2014 dreams come true.

没有水晶鞋和王子的灰姑娘是我:

Stupid [the school has nothing better to do]… what is the point? All that effort might as well be spent on doing more math problems… The same method doesn’t necessarily work for every student… I don’t know if the school is promoting itself or actually “boosting the morale” of the students as they claim.

hoosbrand:

A perverse school and perverse teachers. Perverse teaching methods.

Sigh…Chinese education, when can it finally change?

IniLh:

A bunch of retarded people. Forgot to take your medicine, right?

网名叫啥的:

Just how many can actually get into a top university?

Angry youth, cannon fodder in the Chinese education system. Brainwashing and the Gaokao is the only way out [option].

七只羊128:

Education with Chinese characteristics.

多普达565:

North Koreans have found their soulmates.

SPLACF:

What I see isn’t the hope [future] of China but a perverse education system.

红色の骑士:

Millions of grass mud horses herding into the pig pen, what a sight to behold.

ZOUZHI94:

Even if you’re at the top of your class, so what? These children have no creativity. If the country continues using this mode of education, I confident we’ll still be copying others technology 100 years later.

In a huge country with 1.4 billion people, how can there not be a single Nobel Prize winner in the sciences?
