The China Educational Development Yearbook, Volume 2. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks: Educational Development
Dongping, Yang, Ed.; Chungqing, Chai, Ed.
The second volume of the English-language The China Educational Development Yearbook offers international scholars a glimpse into key issues in Chinese education today from the perspective of Chinese academics, practitioners, and applied researchers. An edited translation of the 2009 volume of the Chinese-language "Blue Book of Education," it opens with an excellent overview of educational developments in the preceding year by Dr. Yang Dongping. Beyond providing authoritative, up-to-date sources on developments in mainline topics in educational policy, practice, and research in China, this volume offers timely attention to the educational implications of three major developments that have occurred outside the realm of the educational system: the occurrence of the tragic Sichuan Earthquake; the convening of the Paralympics in Beijing; and the growing presence of migrant children in China's cities.
