A Survey of the Problem of Unbalanced High School Educational Resource Allocation within the County Region in Gansu Province--Using Seven High Schools in Three Counties as an Example
Kai, Liu; Gaofu, Du
Chinese Education & Society, v48 n6 p453-463 2015
The imbalance in allocating high school educational resources within the county region has expanded the imbalances in local high school educational development. This has caused "diseconomies of scale" in high schools, aggravated the "expansion impulse" in building model high schools, limited the growth of effective demand by families for high school education, and restricted the expansion of the size of overall local high schools. Therefore, balancing the allocation of high school education resources, increasing investment and support for nonmodel high schools, canceling "model high schools," and guiding all high schools onto the path of "running schools with features" is the necessary path for ensuring that Gansu high school education can develop continually and healthily.
