Fluency Red Leather, yellow Leather. She sells seashells by the seashore. That thick tin tooth thought soothing thoughts, then sang this thin song there. I had a wooden whistle, but it wouldn’t whistle. Then I had a steel whistle, but it still wouldn’t whistle. Now I have a tin whistle, and now I can whistle. When I came to Chaoyang Elementary School in the mountains of southwestern China in early September 2006, the policy of “two exemptions and one subsidy” (TEOS) was just being implemented for the first time on a nationwide basis, and the school in this remote mountain township was no exception. For the first time in many years, the children at Chaoyang could go to school without having to pay tuition and miscellaneous and book fees. According to county documents, in the

year 2006–7 the state would subsidize the school with operating funds amounting to RMB95 per elementary school student and RMB145 per junior middle school student per semester. In the second half of this period, every boarding student would receive a RMB10 living allowance per week. The attitudes of the school administration, teachers, parents, and rural inhabitants toward this policy differed somewhat, and implementation of the policy had driven a series of changes in the school’s internal management. The object of this short essay is to bring to the fore the grass-roots reactions to the central government’s educational reform policies, in hopes that future policy making can take the local voices into consideration. Grammar Identify the nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs in the following sentences. Identify the subject, the main verb, and the object. Now that going to school is free, rural families naturally support the policy. However, many years of indiscriminate fee collecting have bred distrust among parents of the school and its teachers. The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion draws all things else to support and agree with it. Often, more often than we care to admit, our attitudes on important social issues reflect only our preconceptions, vague impressions, and untested assumptions. Opinions or points of view expressed are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official position or policies of the U.S. Department of Justice. These direct, low-cost approaches to supervision would enable staff to systemically gather information on social interactions. The popular image of German immigrants in the United States is dominated by two clichés: most Germans (or at least more than average) farmed

for a living, and the majority settled on free government land. A significant number of civilian survivors of combat operations receive no help from international forces, and those that do often find it is too little, too late.
