Meeting Description: As education reforms in K-12 and higher education are becoming intensified in Western countries, especially in the US, there has been a growing interest in Chinese education due to Chinese students’ outstanding academic performances, particularly in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). However, the research literature on Chinese education remains limited and outdated, and few Chinese education scholars publish in English. Since Chinese education theories and practices are rooted in Confucianism, a systematic examination of its influence on Chinese education and its relevance to education in the US and other Western countries is both important and timely. The International Conference on Confucianism and Education is dedicated to this purpose. The conference will advance our knowledge and understanding of Confucian thoughts on education, inform efforts to improve education in the US, and promote cross-culture understanding between China and the Western world.
