Teacher Education in the People's Republic of China. International Studies in Education.
Ashmore, Rhea A.; Cao, Zhen
Since the late 1970s, the central government in China has focused on education reform as one of the key components to achieve the goal of the four modernizations: (1) agriculture; (2) industry; (3) science and technology; and (4) defense. Reform outlines and government mandates have significantly affected education in China at all levels. A brief chronology of education is highlighted and an explanation is given about how teacher education has evolved since the time of Confucius. The monograph includes vignettes taken from original essays. These essays are the extemporaneous writings of Chinese students at the Shanghai International Studies University. (BT)
