    I am a college student to become a teacher in the US. I am working on a paper about Chinese Education. Can you tell me about what it is like for teachers in China? How much money do they make? Is there a teachers Union? Do parents get angry with teachers? How does China work with students how have learning disabilities, special education? How are discipline problems handled in the classroom?

    Thank you.
