As the work of student affairs unfolded in the history of American colleges and universities, deans of students were active participants in the educational mission, charged first with campus discipline as an extension of the office of the president, then later with overcoming the damaging separation of nineteenth-century student life from the educational enterprise of the campus (Jackson, 2011).

This causes a severe interruption in AP classes that are fundamental to success in an American university. These kinds of Chinese operational negative factors cause limitations in how much Ameson can achieve through its educational program.
