About this title

Synopsis:

This book explores the causes of student poverty in China and examines how the Chinese student support system might respond to the needs of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. It shows that the country’s “Great Leap Forward” style expansion of the higher education system since 1999 has not been fully funded by public resources, a discrepancy that is the main cause of student poverty. The task of tackling student poverty in the foreseeable future will thus mainly rely on the student support system, which is not working satisfactorily.

About the Author:

Dr Wing Kit Chan was born in 1978 when China decided to adopt an open-door policy piloted in his province. He finished his PhD in Social Policy at the University of York before joining Sun Yat-sen University in 2008. Dr Chan is interested in topics related to higher education policy or social security policy in China.
