Basic Education in China provides a general overview of the development of basic education in China in the past decades. In China, the term “basic education” is normally used to include pre-school education, primary education, and academic-oriented secondary education (vocational secondary education is excluded). The book starts with a brief historical review on the development of basic education in China since the establishment of its modern school system. It then examines the recent development of policies and practices in the fields of pre-school education, admission arrangements at primary and secondary levels for both public and private schools, school curriculum, financing of basic education, examinations and assessments, teacher education, special education, and basic education for rural-urban migrant children in China. The analyses in the book are mainly based on national legislation, government regulations, and local follow-up activities.




The book is intended for researchers, policy makers, and practitioners in the field of basic education.
