Regional Disparities in the Allocation of China's Higher Education Resources from the Perspective of Equity
Wei, Bao
Chinese Education and Society, v45 n1 p31-41 Jan-Feb 2012
This article attempts to analyze the changing circumstances of the regional disparities in the allocation of China's higher educational resources before and after the increase in college enrollments, as well as the mechanisms that have affected these circumstances. The conclusions are that regional disparities in the allocation of China's funding for higher education have tended to increase after the college enrollments have multiplied; the level of per-student expenditure for higher education institutes in various localities is, to a certain extent, tied to local financial capabilities; and fiscal input for higher education is closely correlated with the levels of local economic development, financial capability, and industrial structure. (Contains 3 tables and 2 figures.)
