Atypical Corruption at Institutions of Higher Learning
Yang, Li
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n6 p6-11 Nov-Dec 2007
This article describes an incident involving twelve teachers at Anhui Haozhou Normal Junior College who used purchased dissertations to apply for professional titles over three consecutive years. Academic corruption is not merely today's problem, and the academic corruption at the institutions of higher learning that the author discloses in this article are not the most serious cases. The problem is that efforts devoted to resolving this problem--including the promulgation of academic standards--by the relevant government departments over the past few years have apparently had a very limited effect. Fundamentally speaking, the solution to the problem of academic discipline ("xue feng") must depend on self-regulation by academics groups and the forming of an academic community, instead of simply on the administrative system.
