Curriculum Reform and School Innovation in China

Series Editors: Cui, Yunhuo, Shulman, Lee

ISSN: 2523-7322

This book series addresses the increasing scholarly and international-policy interest in how Chinese education has changed through several major curriculum reforms and how it has supported economic development. The basic education system in China is one of the largest in the world and has transformed itself from a top-down Soviet model of instruction to a decentralized curriculum-centered mode. Covering reform processes, continuous characteristics of curriculum changes as well as governing experiences in China, it will contribute local insights, professional wisdom and scholarly knowledge to the fields of curriculum studies and school changes. While it is rooted in the Chinese context, the book series also addresses broad international interests and scholarly communication.


This book series will build on the accumulated research led by the Institute of Curriculum and Instruction (ICI) at East China Normal University, the avant-garde of curriculum reforms based in Shanghai and impacting the nation’s reform policies and professional practices. The mission of the ICI is to disseminate the knowledge and wisdom generated from Chinese education around the globe. With a scope ranging from the macro-level to micro-level of Chinese schools, this books series offers various theoretical perspectives and focuses on insiders’ experiences of curriculum reforms and school innovations in China. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to, curriculum policy, curriculum reform, teaching and learning, teacher learning and development, school improvement and innovation, and school leadership.


With local and international researchers specializing in curriculum and school studies in China, this series will add to the impact of Springer’s book series on curriculum studies and Chinese education.
