Explorations in the "Minban" System of Higher Education: History and Present-Day Realities
Maoyuan, Pan
Chinese Education and Society, v40 n3 p83-91 May-Jun 2007
The nonexistence of a privately run higher education system in China for more than thirty years was determined by the economic system. The emergence and development of "minban" (nongovernmental, private) institutions of higher learning became inevitable with the development of the urban-rural cooperative economy, the individual economy ("geti jingji"), and the private economy, and even more so because of the rise of these economic components in terms of levels of production. "Minban" higher education, as a system of education, has real significance for developing the cause of higher education as well as for the training of personnel for the construction of socialist modernization. In this article, the author discusses the significance of the "minban" higher education system for the Chinese construction of socialist modernization. Several questions that must be explored when setting up the "minban" higher education system are also discussed.
