Reform of the Rural Compulsory Education Assured Funding Mechanism: Policy Design Perspective
Rong, Wang
Chinese Education and Society, v41 n1 p9-16 Jan-Feb 2008
An overview of the historical development of China's model for promoting compulsory education in rural areas indicates that it has two basic characteristics. The first is assuring a stable foundation for material support and expanding the provision of education by adopting measures to reduce operating costs. The second is raising the level of funding by widely dispersing funding responsibilities. The Rural Compulsory Education Assured Funding Mechanism Reform, promulgated and implemented in December 2005, is the result of China's constant accelerating policy developments. This article discusses the main financial means employed by China's central government to support rural compulsory education. It also explains the policy design for the rural compulsory education assured funding mechanism. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
