China has rapidly transformed itself into a modern, urban, technologically savvy economic powerhouse, and is now the world’s second-largest economy. But low levels of basic education pose a challenge for the future.
Authors Scott Rozelle and Natalie Hell draw on extensive surveys on the ground to examine how low education levels among China’s large rural population may make it difficult for many to find work in the formal economy as China’s economy continues to transform and manufacturing jobs move to other countries.
Join us to hear the views of one of the book’s authors and discussants on how understanding the situation in China today is essential to addressing this challenge.
