The third volume of the English-language
The China Educational Development Yearbook offers international scholars a glimpse into key issues in Chinese education today from the perspective of Chinese academics, practitioners, and applied researchers. This volume starts with an excellent overview of educational developments in 2009, which witnessed the formulation of the
National Outline for Medium and Long Term Educational Reform and Development initiated by the Chinese government. The formulation of the Outline is a milestone event for Chinese education and has triggered enormous enthusiasm for the belated educational reform. Scholars and practitioners discussed the significance of the Outline and its implications on the development and reform of pre-school education, basic education and higher education. In addition, this volume provides timely attention to the educational implications of major developments such as the impact of the financial crisis on China’s education, corruption in various branches of academics, and the development of non-profit educational organizations.
The China Educational Development Yearbook, Volume 3 informs the Western readers of the current educational development in policy, practice, and research in China.
