Impacts of Globalisation on Higher Education Reform in China: A Trend of Decentralisation and Autonomy
Xu, Shihong
Educational Research for Policy and Practice, v4 n2-3 p83-95 Aug 2005
By tracing back the historical context of educational changes, this article explores in detail the impacts of globalisation on China's higher education reform. A trend of decentralisation in both rights and responsibilities is revealed in terms of structural adjustment, human resource exploitation and retention, curriculum development, and education provision. Also some remaining problems and new challenges from the progress of globalisation are discussed to draw a conclusion that there is a need of combining both centralisation decentralisation approaches in China's both present and future reforms.
