[photopress:MBA_students_smart.jpg,full,alignright]Popularization of higher education has become one of the major changes in Chinese education.
According to recent statistics publicized by the Shanghai Education Commission, the gross entrance rate into higher education in Shanghai is 55%, ranking first in the country. Beijing comes a close second, at 53%. In the same year, the nation’s gross entrance rate into higher education did not reach 19%.
So the disparity between the country, smaller towns and cities and the major powerhouses is quite marked.
More than half of the population aged 18 to 22 in Shanghai and Beijing can get access to some form of higher education. That is higher than most countries in the world including many countries in Western Europe.
Society pays more and more attention to elite intellectuals such as professors, researchers, lawyers, and policy-making consultants. Their opinions and ideas are expressed to the public in media reports and at conferences. The spreading of knowledge is the most forceful way to eliminate sex discrimination and sex inequality.
