A Taiwanese TV station released this animated video (pretty amusing) about rising enrollment of Chinese students at UC schools. Although the video concedes that recruiting wealthy Chinese students ultimately crowds out homegrown American kids, the narrators defend that recruiting in China still provides a “win-win situation” for most parties involved–namely, Chinese students and cash-strapped UC administrators.
UC students have expressed concern that the increased enrollment of Chinese students prevents their poorer American counterparts from gaining spots at their hometown/in-state college. In particular, Asian-Americans are believed to be put at greatest disadvantage (for related article, check out my first NewsBeat post).
