Yong WEI, Xia CHENG

Abstract


As a special form of the general public policy, the financial policy of compulsory education also possesses the essential attributes of it. Since the reform and opening up, the basic sequence of the financial policy of Chinese compulsory education is: equalization of distribution orientation; nationalization of obligation put in; centralization of coordination system as well as standardization of supervision. By analyzing the evolution process of the financial policy of compulsory education, it is found that it follows the top-down-supply-led mechanism and the value orientation of balanced development, as public spirit is the basic feature of reform. What’s more, in this thesis, the theory on the coordination of policy is also utilized to shed light on the non-independence of the evolution in the financial policy of Chinese compulsory education.
