Comparative Studies on the Primary and Middle School Teachers’ Employment Systems Between China and America



Teachers’ Employment System is an important personnel reform in Chinese schools which shows a positive impact on faculty team-building in primary schools and middle schools. Due to short-term reform and lack of historical experience in the primary and middle school teachers’ employment system in China, there are still many problems to solve in practice. This paper plans to fi nd out these problems to help future reform on faculty employment reform in China by fi nding out the problems existing in the teachers’ employment system in primary schools and secondary schools and comparing Chinese primary and middle school teachers’ employment systems with American primary and middle school teachers’ employment systems.
