China initiates 15 year public education requirement starting in the 2015 school year

Well, they do not think small and here is another example of why, sometimes, they deserve to kick our asses...
 
China has initiated a program of 15 years of mandatory public education starting in 2015, to allow for people already in the system and planning to head to trade or technical school to stick to thier already started goals.  Otherwise, children will be starting school at 3-4 years and going through to high school as part of the mandatory public education system here in the Mainland.
 
That used to be us....
