Gang, Cheng; Tao, Lin; Qiaozhen, Lin; Qinghuan, Zhu
Chinese Education and Society, v42 n5 p88-100 Sep-Oct 2009
Education equity is an important means for achieving social equity, but there are few empirical studies on education equity in Chinese academia owing to method limitations. This paper applies a new measurement method to the 2005/6 data of the elementary schools in Zhejiang province and argues that education finance reform in the province has promoted horizontal equity but vertical equity has not been attained. (Contains 6 tables and 4 notes.) [This article was translated by Ted Wang.]
