Banzhuren and Classrooming: Democracy in the Chinese Classroom
Li, Jiacheng; Chen, Jing
International Journal of Progressive Education, v9 n3 p91-106 Oct 2013
The issue of education and democracy has become more and more important in China. This paper firstly explains the theory of democracy in Chinese classrooms, and then focuses on the Chinese banzhuren who is responsible for classrooming, an important educational area equal to instruction. We illustrate how Chinese students achieve development through classrooming, and show the activities, relationships and self-awareness from the perspective of developing the individual and community democratically. Finally, this paper discusses a new direction of democracy in Chinese classrooms in the global context, with the view of making education and society better.
