In a unique experiment, five teachers from China take over the education of 50 teenagers in a Hampshire school to see whether the high-ranking Chinese education system can teach us a lesson.
It is exam week at Chinese School, but after recent discipline problems the Chinese teachers are playing catch-up against their British counterparts. Can their fifty kids knuckle down for the exams, and show benefits from the Chinese approach? And which system will triumph – the Chinese, or the British?
Join us for a screening of the final episode of this BBC documentary series, followed by a convener-led discussion.
