Two buckets in a well: Searching for conditions of success in Chinese schools

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In his keynote address, Allan Walker explores some of the mysteries he has encountered while trying to understand the successes of China’s education system. Examining these mysteries in context shows that many of the oft-criticised societal and educational conditions in China come together to produce impressive student outcomes. This suggests that the same learning conditions have different effects both within and across contexts – there are two sides to every coin.
