Find out more about the Chinese education system here.

The Chinese education system consists of three parts. Nine years of education (6 years of primary and 3 years of junior-secondary) are compulsory, and provided by the state for free. There is also an optional 3 years of senior-secondary education. Each school year is about 245 days. It is possible for gifted students to skip grades. Education is a right, and it is illegal to hire children who have not completed their compulsory education. The majority of schools in China are public schools. There is an exam that must be passed in order to advance through some levels of secondary school.

Higher education was state-run before, but was privatized, which increased enrollment rates. During the Cultural Revolution, education in general suffered and many colleges were closed down, because of the general anti-intellectual sentiment during that time period and the increased powers of the peasants.

Education in China can trace its roots to the civil service exam, which was needed to become a public official.
