China Reversing Brain Drain

A matter of honours

From The Economist – in University World News.

Every country sends out students. What makes China different is that most of these bright minds have stayed away. Only a third have come back, according to the Ministry of Education – fewer by some counts.

A study this year by a scholar at America’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education found that 85% of those who gained their doctorate in America in 2006 were still there in 2011, reports The Economist.
