The Reemergence of Private Schools in Socialist China.
Kwong, Julia
Comparative Education Review, v41 n3 p244-59 Aug 1997
China's private schools, colleges, and technical institutes overwhelmingly are autonomous entrepreneurial institutions that respond to unmet educational demands by selling marketable skills for a profit. Although comprising less than 4% of the country's schools, they demonstrate the market's growing strength in China's socialist society: adoption of free-market philosophy; growth of the private sector; and social class polarization.
