FEATURE: Chinese turn away from class to home-school kids

AFP, BEIJING

However, questions over the legality of home schooling have not deterred Zhang, who says he hopes his son will never return to a Chinese school.

“My son’s Chinese and English skills are much higher than other children his age,” Zhang said, gesturing at a bookshelf filled with titles his young son has read.

“I plan to teach my son at home until he’s ready to attend university. I hope he can attend a great university like Harvard, Oxford or Cambridge, I’m 95 percent certain he can achieve that,” he said.
