Chapter Summary

From October 20 to 22, 2012, some experts of education and their teams came together in Ningbo, China. Education is essentially a conscious culture transmission of culture of thoughts created by human beings for generations. The ultimate goal of education is to use culture to help people to make progress, so that they will become aspiring and noble. China has a long and rich tradition of education. The traditional education system, which was dominated by Confucianism, has shaped Chinese people into ones with distinct cultural character and civilization. After wandering over a century, the time honored Chinese humanities education tradition, will return and help to form a more wholesome modern education system. This system, based on human's mental development, will be open, innovative and healthy. Education of every country relates to the future of mankind. China, as an important developing country, assumes even heavier responsibilities.
