Contradictions of private schools in China

EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH: Chinese private schools may come across as a contradictory phenomenon: An authoritarian and officially socialist government needs to rely on education as an instrument of national unification and ideological control. So why would they allow for private schools and profit-making in the educational sector? However, far-reaching privatisation processes have been shaping the Chinese economy and society since the 1990s, so one might equally wonder why these privatisation processes would not include the educational sector.

Barbara Schulte has published the chapter Private schools in the People's Republic of China: Development, modalities and contradictions in the book Private schools and school choice in compulsory education. Global change and national challenge.

The chapter outlines the development and contradictions of private schools in the People’s Republic of China

The book is edited by Dr. Thomas Koinzer, Dr. Rita Nikolai and Dr. Florian Waldow, Professors at Humboldt University Berlin and targets researchers, students and school administrators.
