The Balanced Development of Education

In the early years after the founding of PRC, Shaanxi's education system was poor and the general level of education was low. The enrollment rate of school-age children was low. In 1957, the primary education enrollment rate of school-age children in Shaanxi was only 52.89 percent. Since the launch of reform and opening up, Shaanxi's education has developed in the process of continuous reform, improvement, and innovation. While comprehensively improving the quality of the population, Shaanxi has made gratifying achievements in promoting educational equity and institution innovation.
