Number of Chinese Students Studying Abroad Expected to Rise

On the heels of Monday’s post (see below), we recommend reading this article, which appeared yesterday at ChinaDaily.com. Most significant indicators of the Daily’s predictions: “840,000 high school graduates did not register for the gaokao (university entrance exam) this year” and “The total number of students traveling abroad to study increased from 144,000 in 2007 to 170,000 last year.” Analysts expect this number to top 200,000 this year, the majority of whom are likely to study in the U.S.

For some extra information and a fuller frame of reference, read this ACEBook post from June 18. Don’t miss the poll at the end of post.
