As the society with the world’s oldest tradition of state-sponsored examinations and some of the most radical government-initiated educational reforms in the modern world, China is a particularly significant site for the analysis of relationships between education and political power. This subject analyses the complexities of the relationship between the state and the education system in China, looking at such issues as how political ideas are disseminated through the education system, contradictions between the training of educational elites and the provision of mass education, student political activism, and the changing relationships between teachers, students and government officials. It also looks at the impact of Chinese educational institutions on the global world, including the phenomenon of overseas study in the modern era.
