G20 members bring together the world's major advanced and emerging economies, as well as the European Union. Together they represent some 90% of global GDP, 80% of global trade and two-thirds of the world's population. In recognition of educational development as a key driver of economic development, the G20 members have put education reform high on their policy agenda in order to meet the challenges and embrace the opportunities ahead. Their experiences and lessons in education reform will not only showcase the global trend of education development, but also will provide valuable reference and inspiration for undertaking education reform to advance national development in China as well as other countries. This book documents recent policy reform in G20 members' systems, showcases the global trends in education policy, serves as a valuable reference tool and also provide inspiration for undertaking education reform to advance development in related countries.
