Perspectives on Contemporary Education in China. Special Studies in Comparative Education, No. 21.
Wang, Jing, Ed.; Wu, Yenbo, Ed.
The research reflected herein reveals not only current educational developments in China but exemplifies the usefulness of comparative education. This publication, stemming from a June 1988 conference in Buffalo, New York, on education in China, is written from a uniquely Chinese perspective mixed with a firm understanding of education in other countries and of a variety of research methodologies learned from doctoral study in the United States. Topics include an organizational analysis of central administration; expansion of higher education (1977-1987); current reform in higher education; issues and trends of the specialization structure in higher education; an analysis of issues and perspectives on compulsory nine-year education; policies and realities concerning why high school teachers do not want to teach; the conflict between two career options (vocational or liberal arts education); status differences in the natural and social sciences; training and development in distance education and learning; a perspective on the development of career counseling; and women's education--progress and contradictions in revolution and in modernization.
