So, many parents push their children harshly in studying so that they can get into these decent schools. good reputation (larger possibility) of going to universities. In addition, the US stresses the importance of creativity of their students. No wonder why many students in my home country want to study abroad in America. Likewise, extra-curricular activities are considered very important. That means if one chooses to be an Arts student, he or she has to take all Arts subjects, like History, Geography, Literature, etc; and they cannot go back to the Science field. They encourage them to think critically, to express their own opinions, and ask question wherever they need help. As a result, Hong Kong students are less nimble than American students do. No matter what the student strengths are, he or she must study Literature, History, Math, Science, etc. It is compulsory for students to take these general courses, even in colleges. Also, there are more schools and more seats provided in America, pursuing education then becomes less competitive and thus every student has the opportunity to go to university if they have the ability.

Moreover, the United States emphasizes the diversity of knowledge; students are required to get an all-rounded education. Unlike Hong Kong, students in America usually go to the elementary schools and high schools which are nearest to their homes.
