Far worse than what I thought about the fukushima radioactive leak. So cancer prevention should be the first to come into consideration if what Dr Helen Caldicott said is true.I can believe it is mostly true. But what I didn’t know was the extent of the disaster. We should never place complacency in what we know and play with fire. I will leave you to watch the video. It is very concisely presented. Anyone who still thinks nuclear is a viable source of power to expand economically should have their brains ‘washed’ by now. Technology should gear towards to how to cancer prevention and cure. I think that’s the most important task now — not the power struggle, fights and material greed. It doesn’t pay. — Karen Fu

Excellent reflection. I think you are a scholar in your own right. And if more people come to think along these terms and beyond, they will not harbour resentment from the ground about students or graduates from elite schools. I too question the nature of how schools are run. The emphasis of A-s and academic reputation via conventional old culture is really redundant and even harmful to real education that focuses on knowledge to serve the people to the best of our ability, in full earnest dedication. Not a mere dive into academic prestige. Knowledge must be used to enhance lives. By that, it must encompass due diligence to learn from the ground too– not just to aim for top schools and gain your personal reputation. Cheers!
Note: Two weeks ago, a number of former Chinese High students spontaneously penned two separate FaceBook notes about their experiences when they were in school.
It’s been about two weeks since Wei Leong’s FaceBook note (here) and Jianrui’s follow-up (here) were published, and I’m pretty sure that most of us within their social circles and even beyond have been charmed by their sentiment and post-graduation enlightenment.
I’ve read them too (a lot of times, in fact, in order to pen this article), and in my first time reading it I was reminiscing and feeling nostalgic about my own school days as well. I agree with most, nearly all of the points raised. School is indeed the best place to venture into new realms, make mistakes. School was where I forged most of my closest friendships, created the best memories and most importantly learnt about the world…
