There are huge differences of education within China. While students, on average, are spending 10 years in education in Beijing, students in Tibet (on average) only get a little more than 3 years. All of central China (Qinghai, Guizhou, Ningxia), but surprisingly also Anhui, have significantly shorter average education than the North-east and South-central of China (Guangdong, Hunan and Hubei)
