“ABC World News” in China this week

Yes, China got a lot of attention during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, but that is not the only attention the largest nation in the world (over 1.3 billion people) deserves. China is also achieving an incredible 10 percent economic growth per year. So, what does this mean for America?

“ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” is in China this week investigating China’s infrastructure, education system and blossoming economy. However, despite the massive growth achieved by China, the nation is still plagued by problems like poverty and unclean water. One statistic baffles me: there are more people learning English in China than there are people living in America. How does China educate so many people? And what can we take from their education system?

Catch the next special tonight on ABC.
