Over 50% Chinese Approve of Education Development

More than 50 percent of Chinese are "very satisfied" or "relatively satisfied" with the country's education standard, according to a three-month survey.

The survey covered 5,049 people from ten cities, seven towns and eight rural areas across the country.

Each questionnaire contained 16 questions and with five possible answers: very satisfied, relatively satisfied, neutral, dissatisfied and very dissatisfied.

The overall result was "relatively satisfied" and "neutral". Some 57.4 percent correspondents were positive about education standards while 12.6 percent were negative.

The survey showed people were most satisfied with the country's promotion of nine-year compulsory education in rural areas and reforms of textbooks, curricula and others. High college tuition fees caused the most dissatisfaction.

Launched in September last year, the survey was jointly conducted by the 21st Century Education Development Research Institute, a non-governmental organization, and the Horizon Research Consultancy Group.

The survey is part of the 2008 blue paper on the country's education released by the 21st Century Education Development Research Institute on Saturday.
