Competition and Compassion in Chinese Secondary Education examines the nature of academic competition in Chinese schools and demonstrates its debilitating effects on adolescents' psychosocial development. Zhao shows how global economic competition induces changes in national education policies, which in turn shapes how school-aged youth are encouraged by their parents and teachers to relate to others and society. Facing extreme pressures of global economic competition, how can education both in the East and West sustain the kind of humanistic learning that is critical for promoting public reasoning or discourse? The book proposes a research-based approach for balancing academic achievement with the promotion of social and civic engagement in China and elsewhere.
