Abstract

The “Plan to Improve Rural Primary and Secondary Schools” was released in 2010, and it has helped spur development of compulsory education in rural areas. Yet, amid rapid urbanization, compulsory education in rural areas has encountered many difficulties. As to the development of rural education, we would like to propose that efforts be made to promote the standardization of rural education in an all-around way, to bring forth well-conceived plans for the successful running of necessary rural primary schools and teaching sites, to probe into effective measures to ensure education for migrant children and left-behind children, to explore various forms of school administration, and to develop rural education based on the diversified development of senior secondary schools.

Broad-based societal participation in innovative education reform is an important driving force of educational innovation.

Through a survey and review of the education innovation practices in civil society in 2015, this article attempts to present a picture of innovative education practices in civil society and to further explore their dimensions and scale to evaluate education innovation and its developmental trend.

Abstract

Government purchase of educational services has become an important policy in-strument for governments in many countries around the world. Some provinces and municipalities in China such as Shanghai, Chongqing, and Zhenjiang have been doing something similar to make up the government funding shortfall for public educational services. However, implementation outpaces policy formulation, and practice is one step ahead of theoretical studies. With the enforcement of relevant regulations concerning the purchase of educational services by the government, government purchase of educational services will be the entry point for improving the system of educational governance and promoting the elevation of educational governance capacity. But we should have a proper theoretical comprehension and explicit positioning in order to further implement and promote purchase of educational services by the government and further propel and support the development of social organizations and perfect the relevant system for this practice.
