China Borrows from Abroad to Reform Its Training Institutes
Hvistendahl, Mara
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n11 pA33 Nov 2008
China's education ministry has been scrapping Soviet-style curricula found in its traditional vocational colleges, pushing the creation of more-relevant majors, and encouraging students to select vocational degrees over four-year universities. Over the past decade, the ministry has turned to countries like Australia, Germany, Canada, and, most recently, the United States, for guidance. This article reports how China is coping with the task of reforming a system that suits their situation.
