Description: This poster discusses research comparing the education in China and the United States. How children learn best has always been an issue up for debate around the world, mainly because countries differ in culture. Because of people like Friedrich Froebel, Lev Vygotsky, Maria Montessori, and Reggio Emilia, however, the world has come to see that we can learn from each other's successes and implement them into our own education programs. The main goal of this research is to discuss the differences in early education programs between China and the United States and assess the impact that these differences have on the children. The author is interested to see if the emphasis China puts on its children actually pays off and, if so, how we can adjust education programs in the United States to incorporate some of China's ideas.
