The second connection I made was when Ji-Li talked about Chairman Mao's new instruction to, "combine education with practical experience." Many kids in my class often complain about the fact that we should have classes that will actually help us when we are older. For example Ji-Li had to learn about agriculture and how to farm. People even used that topic as their speech, but what if your favorite classes are taken away to learn how to be a cashier? A year-round class of opening and closing a cash register to take out and insert money. If this change happened at our school, I bet that many people would be unhappy. You don't realize what you have until it is gone.
