- Education, education : what does an education get you?
- When the Chinese government privatized universities in 1997 education became a commodity, with some institutions charging the equivalent of 60 years of income in exchange for a college degree. And while many saw the steep cost as a good investment, the system now produces more than 2 million graduates every year who join the "ant tribe"--a battalion of recent grads unable to find work. This program examines trends in Chinese education that leave young people barred from good employment opportunities, or hopelessly in debt, making schooling a cause of poverty instead of a way out of it. A viewable/printable instructor's guide is available online. A part of the series Why Poverty? (Portions with English subtitles, 59 minutes + 7 minutes of bonus material)
