China’s Education Gap; Urban vs. Rural

The capstone project brought us through a series of assignments, starting with loads with research, followed by interviews and an essay, and finally, a documentary. With this project, I chose to focus on the urban versus rural education gap in China. For me, I really learned about how this education gap does not just affect the quality of education, but also the affordability of education as well as how it affects the student’s day-to-day life. I really enjoyed how this project managed to change my beliefs on how wildly difference rural education could be to an urban education. Before, I thought that the difference would just be how nice the school looked, or how fancy the technology was. However, after progressing along the project, I realized how drastically different these two types of school can be. It completely affects all aspects, ranging from the literal physical structure of the school, all the way to the mentors and even the students. If would have the chance to do this project again, I would focus more on managing my time and making a day-to-day plan on what I need to get done. As the project moved on, time became more of scarcity and things became more rushed. Therefore, making a detailed plan and managing my time would be a focus if I were to do this project again. This would also be my most important piece of advice for eighth graders that are about to do this project.
