Report on higher education quality reveals flaws

A new national report on the quality of higher education in China has been released, suggesting more needs to be done to develop an 'innovative spirit' among Chinese college students, writes Victor Ning for CRIENGLISH.

Research for the latest report began in 2012, as a joint effort among China's Ministry of Education and a number of leading Chinese universities. Experts from well-known universities, including Tsinghua University and Peking University, have assessed the basic conditions and management of China's higher education institutions.

It also included surveys of employers who have hired recent graduates. Those surveys have found many employers are generally dissatisfied with their new hires’ practical skills and professional ethics.
