New Era, New Policy: Cross-Border Education and Sino-Foreign Cooperation in Running Schools in the Eyes of a Fence-Sitter
Minxuan, Zhang
Chinese Education and Society, v42 n4 p23-40 Jul-Aug 2009
Since World War II, the internationalization of education has experienced a change from a period of political influence to a service trade structure. As the Third International Forum on the Educational Service Trade began, more and more governments accepted the concept of cross-border education. At a time when both opportunities and challenges lay ahead, the government of China had formulated and implemented a series of policies for the internationalization of education to standardize and guide Sino-foreign education programs in China. These policies have embodied the key focal points and minimum policy standards for China's development of Sino-foreign educational programs and set out the functions and standards for each level of government. Looking forward to the future, China's government needs to advance with the times, build an efficiently functioning administration, and propose and implement policies for reviewing and approving cosponsored programs, protecting the interests of all parties, improving education quality, and separating supervision and operation.
