Affluent parents in the United States and around the world commonly seek to provide their children every advantag[color=red][size=125]es[/size], of course, including paying for tutors and test preparation courses, and sometimes turning to private schools willing to accept wealthy students despite poor grades.
- Is the “s” in red color correct?
- Could someone please explain the bold part above?
What do the two “as” suggest here?
No. It should be ‘every advantage’ or ‘with advantages’.
Sometimes wealthy parents will pay to send their children to private schools (where the education they receive should be of a higher standard because they have more money to spend on teachers, resources, etc.than state schools). The parents can afford to pay the school fees and the schools will accept the students even if they don’t have good school grades, because they want the fees.
For ‘wealthy students’, you should really read, ‘willing to accept students from wealthy families’
China’s education system is deemed to be the hallmark of Communist meritocracy.
Chinese families are finding that the best education can be bought, and those families that can’t afford to pay (the ‘have nots’) are losing out.
