What Is The Position of China’s Education Level In The World?

The overall level of China’s education development has entered the ranks of the middle and upper-income countries in the world. Through the evaluation of China’s education, it shows that:

(1) The enrollment rate of preschool education is 75%, reaching the average level of middle and upper-income countries in the world;

(2) The enrollment rate of primary school is 99.9%, and that of junior high school is 104%. The popularization rate of nine-year compulsory education students with a total number of 150 million in China exceeds the average level of high-income countries in the world;

(3) The high school enrollment rate is 87% and the higher education enrollment rate is 40%. These two indicators are higher than the average level of the middle and upper-income countries in the world.

China is a developing country with a large population. It is not easy to achieve this level of development, which shows that China’s education has stood at a new historical starting point.




Why China’s education level can have such great progress, I will answer for you:


1. Systematic teaching of knowledge

Chinese teaching system, from primary school to high school, and even universities, is very rigorous and thorough. In primary and secondary schools, Chinese education uses a systematic knowledge system to help students who have not yet formed systematic thinking to lay a solid foundation, which can help students better understand the deep content.

2.Complete teaching system

In the 21st century, China’s government has put education in the priority strategic position, put forward the strategic policy of “invigorating the country through science and education”, deepening the reform of the education system, strengthening quality education.

And persisting in popularizing the compulsory education of 9-year system and eliminating illiteracy in the young and middle ages as the top priority in education“ Facing modernization, facing the world and facing the future “is the direction of China’s education development, and also a guide for the education reform and construction.

At the same time, governments at all levels continue to increase investment in education and encourage people to run schools through various channels and forms.

China’s education system can be roughly divided into the following five stages

(1) Preschool education

It refers to the educational process of 3-6-year-old children in kindergarten. There are 111752 kindergartens in China, with 90million teaching staff and 20.3602 million children in school. The enrollment rate of school-age children is 43.8%.

(2) Primary education

Refers to the education process of children aged 6-12 in primary school. There are 456903 primary schools in China, with 6.3402 million primary school staff, 12156.71 million primary school students, and 99.1% of school-age children.

(3)Secondary education

It refers to the process of receiving education in secondary schools during the age of 12-17. Junior high school, ordinary high school, vocational high school, and technical secondary school are all secondary schools. Ordinary middle schools are divided into junior high schools and senior high schools, with three years each. Some junior high school graduates go to senior high schools, and some go to vocational high schools and technical secondary schools. There are 93968 secondary schools with 94.1521 million students. Secondary schools are generally run by local governments.

(4)higher education

Junior college, undergraduate, and graduate education following secondary education. Institutions of higher education in China are universities, colleges, and colleges. Colleges and universities have three functions: teaching, scientific research, and social service. There are 1396 institutions of higher learning and 72 private institutions of higher learning in China, with 1.03 million staff and 4.13 million students. There are 718 adult colleges and universities, 4 Private Adult Colleges and universities, with two hundred thousand teaching staff. In order to promote the development and reform of higher education, the state has put forward the “211 Project”, that is, to face the 21st century, focus on building about 100 colleges and universities and a number of key disciplines.

(3)Continuing Education

It includes adult technical training, adult nonacademic higher education, and literacy education. There are four hundred and sixty thousand adult technical training schools with 62.93 million students; 2.8 million people have completed all kinds of adult higher nonacademic education in China; There are fifty thousand adult primary schools with 2.27 million students.




3. The continuous development of China’s economic strength

As China is in the stage of rapid development, with the continuous progress of science and technology, it has brought some new impact on education. For example, online teaching has become the most popular thing in recent years. The change of the traditional teaching model has a certain change to the students’ learning styles. Students can not only learn knowledge from the school but also expand the amount of knowledge through online teaching.



4.Chinese education level is in the middle position in the world, it is constantly improving

In terms of the number of world-class universities, China is in a leading position in some countries.

Several universities are among the top 200 in the world, and about 40 universities are among the top 500 in the world.

After the United States, China once occupied the largest number of seats in the top 500 Academic rankings of world-class universities.

In terms of the scale of higher education, China has surpassed the United States as a powerful country.

However, in terms of the number of world-class universities and world-class top scientific research achievements reflecting the quality and competitiveness of higher education, China is not only inferior to Britain, Germany, France, and other countries but also inferior to Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Israel, and other countries.




Moreover, in terms of the attraction of higher education to international students, China is far less attractive than Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and other Nordic countries.

Of course, after more than ten years of education reform, China’s higher education level has made great progress. On the one hand, China has established the largest higher education system in the world, which is a very important performance.

On the other hand, China has basically established a school running system, management system, and teaching system that are compatible with China’s economic development.

In addition, China actually implements the education development strategy of popularization and catching up, and the popularization of higher education is much higher than that of other countries in the world.

The enrollment scale of China’s colleges and universities is constantly expanding, with an annual enrollment of more than 6 million people.

With the development of China’s economy and politics, China’s investment in higher education is also increasing, and different measures are being taken to improve the problems existing in higher education.




Here is a very convincing example to illustrate the position of China’s education level in the world. This year, the times higher education China discipline rating was released.

This evaluation includes 1420 universities in the world, and more than 90 universities in China also participate in it.

That evaluation adopts the discipline evaluation method of the Ministry of Education of China.

On the whole, the overall score of China’s universities is B +, while that of the world is B. It shows that China’s universities are above the global level in this assessment. Of course, only 90 universities participated in the evaluation this time, but there are still many universities in China that have not participated in the evaluation.

The universities that participated in the evaluation represent the strength of China’s high-level universities, which is not the average strength of China.




It is worth noting that in this assessment, China’s higher education level is comparable to that of the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and surpasses that of Japan, France, South Korea, Russia, and other developed countries.

From the perspective of 89 disciplines, China has its own strengths and weaknesses, such as the history of science and technology, fine arts, design, drama and film, music, and dance.

China is not ranked in the world and basically has no level. However, Australia is very strong in these disciplines, surpassing the United States, Britain, Germany, and other countries, and is in the leading position in the world.

Finally, we can draw such a conclusion. In recent years, China’s education popularization has been greatly improved, and its overall level has leaped to the top of the world.
