A young Chinese boy's 15 page resume is taking the internet by storm. To some, the resume is but a reflection of China's education system, often needing such extreme measures to compete. To others, it's an indictment of the child's parents.

The CV was leaked from a school application. Screenshots were posted to Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging site. From there it spread getting thousands of comments and shares.

The document contains an extensive list of genuinely impressive accomplishments for a five year old. From a map of cities he has visited, to the hundreds of books he's read in the last year, the resume speaks volumes of a child trying to get into a good school.

It sparked debate online with many seeing the resume as an overboard reaction on behalf of the parents.







The Chinese education system is a highly competitive market, where tests and exams determine nearly every aspect of a child's future. This can lead to some parents being extra aggressive in their child's pursuit of academic excellence.

Others felt that the parents were doing their best for their child in an unfair and overly competitive system.









The controversy surrounding the strict standards of the Chinese education system have been coming under scrutiny as of late. Calls have been put out to remove or reduce the stigma from failing some of their most dreaded tests.

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.
