Chinese students head to the US

They pay more than US students, but say bringing home new knowledge is worth the price.

    China is not only America's biggest foreign lender - it also sends more students to universities in the United States than any other country.

    In the past year, a record 128,000 Chinese students attended classes on US campuses, surpassing Indian citizens for the first time.

    Tom Ackerman has this report from the midwest state of Indiana.
