Abstract

This article is a critical analysis of the educational reforms and the drastic curriculum changes in modern China, particularly of issues related to the abolishing of the National College Entrance Examination during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) and the revival of the National College Entrance Examination after the Cultural Revolution (1977-). The paper distinguishes the soundness and the limitations of the two educational reforms in light of postmodern perspective, and provides suggestions for the future of China's curriculum development. The implications associated with the discussion may shed some light for international education as well.
