An American View of Chinese Students

Check out this article by Ken Ellingwood in the Chronicle of Higher Education about his view of

Chinese students.  He discusses how they are distinctly different from previous generations in that they are much more pragmatic and interested in improving their lives and their country.  As he says in the article, "...1990's kids have come too far to waste their lives in traffic."

I think this is true of America's upcoming generation.  They are pretty sick of the blue and red divisions  and the overall politics of mutual destruction.  I would look for the emerging generation in the U.S. and China to do great things that do away with the discord of our current era.

I know that a number of college students and professors read this blog.  Do you agree with me?  Do you think that the current college generation is ready to transcend the status quo?

I'm a student of the emerging generation in the U.S. I love China and I hate traffic.
