Preparation for Transnationalism: Changes in China's Top Secondary Schools
Gordon, June A.; Liu, Xiangyan
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v4 n1 Spr 2014
This article argues that new international programs within public secondary schools in China represent a vigorous and legitimatized approach to meeting the demands of newly affluent Chinese families for pre-collegiate education that equals the best international standards and constitutes preparation for higher education at the leading universities of the U.S., U.K., Australia, and beyond. From a transnational perspective, it offers insights into the changes that have taken place within China over the last decade as well as provides an overview of some of the variation in educational programs and practices as they relate to the internationalization of secondary education in China.
