The Educational System of China as Recently Reconstructed. Bulletin, 1911, No. 15. Whole Number 462
King, Harry Edwin

When we think of China, with a history dating back more than 4,000 years, with a national literature not excelled by that of any other ancient people, a system of government conducted by her ablest scholars, chosen for more than 12 centuries by competitive examinations, we are not surprised to find her characterized by a spirit of self-confidence. By reason of her early development in culture and in government, she became the teacher of neighboring countries, and invariably compelled her victor to adopt her language, literature, customs, and laws, literally absorbing the conqueror and making him lose himself among her people. The first purpose of this bulletin is to trace the growth of the first national educational institutions and the struggle over the introduction of modern education into China before the formation of the ministry of education. The second purpose is to treat of the present educational system as outlined by the ministry of education. Chapters include: (1) The Growth of Modern Education in China up to 1898; (2) Education from 1898 to 1900: Reforms and Counter Reforms; (3) Development of Modern Education from 1900 to 1906; (4) Controlling Agencies of the Educational System; (5) Primary Education; (6) Middle Schools, Provincial Colleges, and Universities; (7) Normal, Technical, and Miscellaneous Schools; and (8) Chinese Students Studying Abroad. A bibliography is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. [Best copy available has been provided.]
