Directions for Higher Education in the People's Republic of China.
Hodes, Carol L.
This paper reports on the state of higher education in China, and was written by a U.S. scholar who attended a global population conference at East China Normal University in Shanghai (China). The focus of the meeting was on population and the environment. Although China's compulsory, government-controlled educational system bears similarity to the Russian system, higher education in China is changing in several directions. Distance education alternatives have been growing steadily and new programs are being put into place to increase access to education. As the Chinese government phases out full support of higher education for a majority of students, a new student loan program is seen as a way to reduce per capita government expenditure on higher education. China is slowly entering the technology age, and needs to upgrade its existing systems. Increasing access to both education and technology are key components of producing the workforce required by the modernization process. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/MAS)
