    It may sound incredible, but China’s formal education system—the oldest in the world—was established nearly two millennia ago. The imperial education and examination system in China is estimated to have been founded as early as the Han dynasty ( BCE to CE), and is strongly based on meritocratic ideals that persist in Chinese. At China Change, a few dedicated staff bring you information about human rights, rule of law, and civil society in China. We want to help you understand aspects of China’s political landscape that are the most censored and least understood. We are a (c)(3) organization, and your contribution is tax-deductible.

    Not very much. This paper aims to change that. It provides a broad overview of how China’s education system is organised and operates, and how reforms, both past and current, have reshaped education in China over time. The report then examines in greater detail education in the four economies within China that participated in PISA File Size: 2MB. China has the largest education system in the world. Ministry of Education estimates that above 99 percent of the school-age children have received universal nine-year basic education. Higher education in China has played an important role in the economic construction, science progress and social development.

    China’s rapid economic growth, modernization and globalization have led to astounding social changes. Contemporary China provides a fascinating portrayal of society and social change in the contemporary People’s Republic of China. This book introduces readers to key sociological perspectives, themes and debates about Chinese society.
