In the past decade, China has made amazing achievements in its educational development. National reforms in primary, secondary, higher and vocational education are underway. Teachers, as professionals, are now receiving unprecedented respect. Mr. Li Lanqing, a key government player in the midst of these changes, explains:
- How China has succeeded in providing a nine-year compulsory education for virtually all children of eligible age. - Why Chinas colleges and universities have been able to develop so quickly. - How higher educational and research institutions ensure that their research results enter the market quickly. - How China has reformed and developed its vocational education. - How the Chinese government has overcome tremendous challenges in reforming and developing education nationwide.
As a Vice Premier of the State Council between 1993 and 2003, Mr. Li held a key role in the government as head of education. He devoted most of his energy to education as he believed that education stands out among all governmental roles in terms of scope and complexity and is of paramount importance to a nation. Overall, Mr Li asserts, education in China owes its success mainly to the correct leadership of the Communist Party of China, and to a series of major policies.
In his book, Education For 1.3 Billion: Former Chinese Vice Premier LI LANQING on 10 Years of Education Reform and Development, Mr. Li describes how major policy decisions were taken, how he himself grappled with the challenges associated with change, and his views on important issues in Chinese education.
