An Empirical Study on Education Equity in China, 1978-2004
Zhang, Changzheng; Huan, Zhijian; Li, Huaizu
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n4 p536-544 Oct 2007
By using the education Gini coefficient (EGC), as the indicator of education equity, this paper will calculate the degree of education equity in China during 1978-2004. Results show that although education equity as a whole has improved significantly since 1978, it is rather at a low level compared with the international average. Due to the great inequality among regions and the rural-urban disparity in education, the positive influence of education on social development and economic growth has been limited.
