Research on Chang Po-Ling’s Practice of Persuading People to Donate Money on Education and Its Practical Significance

Yiming REN, Mengqi Li


As a well-known founder of the Nankai School in the Republican period of China, Chang Po-ling started an example to develop private education and persuade people to donate money on education. During this process, due to his “Nankai spirit”of diligence and striving, Mr. Chang Po-ling who was full of strong patriotic sentiment from beginning to end, affected a lot of domestic military and political figures, entrepreneurs and business owners, schoolfellows, directors, international friends, founds and organizations, and attracted them to support and focus on education initiators. Through various ways and a series of practical activities, Chang Po-ling persistently encouraged everyone to donate money on education and gained the continuous development of Nankai School. When looking back at Chang Po-ling’s process of persuading people to donate money on education, we can not only see his extremely excellent and brilliant achievements on school running, but also can study and reflect on how to utilize social force to service for current education.
