Since the development of Shenzhen only lasts for several decades, most public schools are rather mediocre in terms of school ranking and education quality. However, international schools, international programs (claiming international school status), and a tremendous number of language centers and supplemental tutoring services greatly flourish here in Shenzhen. Having teaching jobs in Shenzhen are good.
Of all top cities, jobs in Shenzhen tend to pay slightly better, and the cost of living is generally lower. Shenzhen often makes it to the top of pay scales on average, while rent and cost of living are slightly less expensive than other expensive cities like Shanghai. Numerous factories in Guangdong provide cheap products for every path of life. Besides, people in Shenzhen can purchase duty-free imported products, high-end clothing, suits, electronics, jewelry, etc. that are otherwise expensive in mainland China in nearby Hong Kong, thus reducing the living cost of Shenzhen.
