Sister Furong's portrait on textbook

In the past, only some heroes can be selected as models for us to study in the textbooks. However, after Jay Chou's photo appeared in the secondary school's textbook, Sister Furong has announced in her micro blog that her cartoon portait was selected to interpret the English word "spectacular" recently.

With regard to this phenomenon, some parents believe that these famous people's stories can encourage their children to study hard because most of the stars have experienced the hardship of life. However, some educational experts think choosing the controversial "famous people" to the textbook is risky.

Sister Furong wrote on her micro blog that her friend told her she was chosen to be the illustration to interpret the word "spectacular" in an English textbook in the morning of May 6. Until the reporter published this story, the news in her micro blog has been copied by more than 400 netizens and more than 200 netizens have made comments on it.
