On Sunday, I’ll be speaking at the Courtyard Institute here in Beijing at an event hosted by 美中说 and Project 朋友. The tongue-in-cheek question for the evening is “Who will steal your job in ten years, a graduate from Peking University, or a graduate from Oberlin?” This question is, of course, a proxy for the larger debate about the value of the Chinese school system and its reliance on high-stakes test, and the western school system and its embrace of the liberal arts. For a preview of the event, watch this.
