Too much homework has become a common complaint in high schools and elementary schools. Students have to spend most of their time doing homework, even on weekends. As a result, they have no time for their hobbies, or for their parents or friends. All they do is what they have to do, not what they like to do.
The underlying cause for this phenomenon lies in the present exam-oriented education system. National College Entrance Examination has become the sole focus of teachers, parents, and students themselves. High score becomes the ultimate goal, to the neglect of practical abilities, personality development, and all that.
It is urgent that we deepen our educational reform. We must allow for students' overall development, not just evaluate their test scores.
Media and Shopping
With numerous technological advances， various kinds of media have been well developed. As a result，an increasing number of people are fond of purchasing goods with the help of media， such as newspapers，radio stations，TV stations and the Internet. As we know， there are always two sides to everything and shopping via media is no exception. On the one hand，it saves much time，money and effort to purchase goods through media since you don‘t have to go to the shops in person. Besides，you can choose what you want from an enormous variety of goods on display. On the other hand， you may becheated sometimes by the false information and suffer a considerable loss. As far as I am concerned，shopping via media brings great benefits to our life and our economy on the whole. At the same time，we need strengthened supervision over the information released via media. In this way，we can gain more benefits from shopping via media and reduce the possible harm to aminimum.
