主讲人：Allan Walker、Qian Haiyan
摘要：The purpose of the talk is to discuss some of the mysteries around the much-touted recent success of school education in China and to explore some of the key conditions that may underpin the success. By exploring the key conditions, we cite research to illustrate what educational research in China (specifically in the area of educational leadership) can contribute to the international knowledge base. We will also indicate some topics that are worthy of further research.
