Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that the reason behind the policies (Eight Education Measures) by the Ministry of Education was the almost frantic "transition of primary school graduates to junior high schools" in some major cities. Complicated and chaotic policies for the "transition to junior middle schools" contributed to the thriving after-school training and competition for Mathematical Olympiad of all kinds. Doubt of parents grew again when parents noticed that many schools still listed the marks of Olympiad as an important indicator for the selection of primary school graduates and that some students were able to enter the experimental class and competition class of those prestigious schools with their outstanding marks in Mathematical Olympiad. It also gave rise to the gap in terms of teaching teams and usable social resources, the "software" of schools. This was another important reason behind the imbalance between schools of compulsory education.
