This document contains the proceedings of a conference on the future of Chinese education. The papers are grouped into four sections: (1) school, culture, and society; (2) teaching and learning; (3) educational reforms; and (4) John Dewey and Chinese education. The conference was designed to provide researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers with a forum to discuss various theoretical and practical issues. The conference focused on four themes: (1) basic and rural education; (2) literacy; (3) cultural education; and (4) learning experiences in formal, informal, and non-formal settings. Potential topics for future investigations are suggested in the 25 articles that are presented in entirety, and in abstracts of 25 other articles. Articles dealing with school, culture, and society include: (1) "International Exchange: Some Reflections on China and the West" (Ruth Hayhoe); (2) "China's Academic Relations with Canada: Past, Present, and Future" (Martin Singer); (3) "The Educational Role of Chinese Almanacs: Past, Present, and Future" (Richard J.
