China’s cultural, economic, and political rise has brought the country to the forefront of global scholarly inquiry. In recent years, international assessments such as PISA have placed countries of predominantly Chinese descent or influenced by the Chinese writing system and Confucian philosophy at the top of student performance rankings. Can a distinct “Chinese education model” be identified? If so, is it a contributing factor to the educational successes of countries heavily influenced by Chinese culture and philosophy? These are some of the questions that we invite you to examine with Professor Chou.
