Comparative Study Tour: Educational Change in China and the United States

This course is designed to provide students with opportunities to explore the educational system and education reforms in China. Recent changes and progress in the People's Republic of China have been historic and highly significant. As the Chinese continue to improve their economic, political, and social foundations, they also look to strengthen their educational systems. These changes can serve as basis for comparison for educators interested in examining the process of educational change. By examining these reform efforts in China, both in educational systems and instructional practices, educators will develop the ability to assess the impact of educational change and to plan effectively for activities that will enhance the learning experiences in their own schools
