Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a composition onthe topic Education Gap Contributes to Wealth Gap. You should write at least 120 words according to the outline given below in Chinese:
From the first chart, we learn that China rural areas have a far lower proportion of residents with higher education levels than do China urban areas. In particular, there are more than 5 undergraduates in 100 people in the city, contrasted with nearly naught in the countryside. The second chart tells us that there exists a widening wealth gap between China rural and urban populations, with the gap rate rising from 1.9 to 2.9 and to 3.5. It is not difficult for us to come to the conclusion that education gap contributes to wealth gap.
As is known to all, the city has many advantages over the countryside in terms of attracting talented people — more job opportunities, cultural activities, sporting events. On the other hand, people with higher education levels enjoy more mobility. Given the information age, mental work is far more profitable than manual work. It is unsurprising but worrying that the wealth gap between city and countryside is widening.
The widening wealth gap poses a threat on social stability. The following are two of my suggestions to tackle this problem. Firstly, it time to adopt the policy of free education for all kids and break the evil circle: the poor parents cannot pay for the high education cost their children get poor in the future. Secondly, it is necessary for rural governments to work out some favorable policies to attract funds for establishment of factories in the countryside. The improvement of employment situation will enormously help pull back some intellectuals and lessen the gap.
