China’s rich want their kids to study abroad

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

An over­whelm­ing majority of China’s rich­est peo­ple are likely to send their chil­dren abroad for ed­u­ca­tion, the United States and the United King­dom be­ing their first choices, ac­cord­ing to a Hu­run Re­port on ed­u­ca­tion.

The re­port said that some 80 per­cent of the coun­try’s rich peo­ple have plans to send chil­dren abroad, the high­est ra­tio in the world.

By con­trast, Ja­pan has less than 1 per­cent and Ger­many has less than 10 per­cent of its rich peo­ple hav­ing such plans, said the re­port.

The rich peo­ple are most likely to send their chil­dren to the United States and the United King­dom, while other coun­tries such as Aus­tralia, Canada, Switzer­land, New Zealand, Sin­ga­pore, France and Ger­many at­tract most of the rest.
