The post-Mao China has seen unprecedented changes in Chinese economy and governance. Though critics have rebuked China for its conservative ideologue, the country has been on the watch list of many businesses. In the context of education, the Chinese have long suffered due to the lack of quality education. The dormant private schools in China could not do much to meet the education needs of the common man. Even the government showed laxity in its approach to improving the education system. China's growing demand for schools coupled with the weak education system was proving detrimental to the progress of the new generation.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the reasons behind the underdevelopment of private schools in China
  • To discuss the reform process that the government has adopted as a means to liberalise the education sector. Of particular importance are the issues on the law of compulsory education and the government's reluctance to accept 'profit-making' as the objective of private schools.

Keywords : Post-Mao economic reforms, Sishu, Reform process, Draft decision on reforming the education system, Government and Business Environment Case Study, Law of compulsory education, China's education system, Elite schools, Outline of the Chinese education reform and development, State Education Commission, Profit making objectives, Principals' responsibility scheme,Business Environment Case Study, Confucius
