Last May, The Wall Street Journal carried an article entitled “U.S. Schools Expelled 8,000 Chinese Students.” To many people that came as a surprise because most people associate Chinese students with academic success. However, as China changes as a nation, so do its students studying here on this side of the Pacific. What did the WSJ article show us about China and how it is changing? We’re all children of our time and culture, and so are the Chinese students. What is happening to the Chinese students in America says a lot about China itself. There seems to be a cause and effect.
