The past years have witnessed a mounting number of Chinese scholars returning from Overseas.
As is lively illustrated by the column chart, the number of returnees climbed from a mere 69.3 thousand in 2008 to over 272.9 thousand in 2012, at an annual increase rate of around 50%.
A multitude of factors may have led to the tendency revealed by the chart, but the following are the critical ones from my perspective.
First and foremost, along with the development of Chinese economy and society, the number of Chinese studying abroad has been soaring in the past years, which has provided an expanding base for the number of returnees.
In the second place, the government has enacted a series of preferential policies to attract overseas Chinese scholars back home.
Last but not least, the booming economy, science and technology in this country have generated more attative job opportunites for scholars returning from overseas.
The waves of returnees will definitely contribute to this nation's development, since they have brought back not only advanced science and technology but also pioneering concepts of education and management.
With more scholars coming back from overseas, and with the concerted efforts of the whole nation, we have reasons to expect a faster rejuvenation of this country.
According to a survey about the communication between students and their parents, about 67% of students are willing to communicate with their parents about their studies, while only 22% of them are willing to talk about their personal affairs with their parents. Besides, 32% of students or so often ask their parents to buy books for them, but only 3.7% like to talk about study habits with their parents.
The survey indicates the limitation of communication between students and their
parents. Since parents' concern is on their children's studies, the latter are expected to be ready to make their performance and problems known to their parents. This is what all the parents insist on. However, some students don't want to tell about anything on studies to their parents. They may be afraid of being blamed for their failures on studies. In spite of the fact that 67% of students like to talkabout their studies with their parents, less than one third of the percentage like to talk about their personal affairs in family, which is partly due to the existence of the gap between the two sides. Most young peoplr don't want theirparents to get involved in their own life because they long to maintain their spiritual independence. In conclusion, efforts should be made to improve the mutual communication between students and their parents. (227 words)
