What Kind of Modern School System Do We Need?
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n1 p1-12 Mar 2007
The marketization of education cannot serve as the guiding principle in constructing the modern school system, nor can it be directly transplanted from modern enterprise system. Because the modern school system is a kind of "educational institution" rather than an "economical institution", what it should focus on is not the ownership of property or the distinction of property, but on the core educational issue, that is, the students' development. Such a kind of modern school system requires that the government delegates power to schools to realize academic autonomy in schools (self-governance).
