What's behind Chinese parents' anxiety about education?

Yes, kids in China are in fierce competition, but ultimately for what? Better schools? No - the assumption that better schools open better career opportunities and bring wealth.

Invest in more high quality schools and/or overall in better education from middle schools upwards, so that younger kids won't have so much to compete about. That will not only benefit the young children, but create better adults overall.

Increase pay for less educated people - technicians, engineers and nurses. Not everyone needs to get a PhD or any university degree. Increase the value of vocational education.

If that does not help, spread the quality higher education in universities from a handful of elite universities to the whole university network in China.

Simply remove the need for competition in all levels, and educate children to find their own competitiveness through creativity.
