Education in China.
Ministry of Education (Republic of China).
This book provides a comprehensive view of education in the People's Republic of China today. Divided into four sections, the bulk of the book's material is covered in the first section, "Education in China." Section 1 begins with a discussion of educational achievements in China, the present educational situation and basic conditions in 1980, and government policies and goals directed toward enabling education to serve Socialist modernization better. Statistical charts are included on the number of students, minority students, and females at all levels enrolled in the schools from 1949 to 1980. Charts also provide information on the number of schools, teachers, and graduates in China. Next, the discussion focuses on popularizing primary education in two counties in China--Yanguan and Taojiang. The last part of section 1 focuses on integrating education with productive labor. With this emphasis in mind, the topics discussed deal with research and teaching in a medical college; an agricultural university which combines teaching scientific research and production; the training of biology teachers for secondary schools; a middle school where the classroom is a factory; vocational schools in industrial areas; and an agricultural middle school. Section 2 describes China's secondary vocational (specialized) education, which is now an important part of education in China. Sections 3 and 4 provide information on adult education in China and on education for the blind and deaf-mutes. (NE)
