Abstract

China and the United States have long histories of educating their populations. Currently, all children in both China and the United States are mandated to attend for a minimum of nine years, and schools are free for students. Although education in China and the United States may be accessible to all, do all groups have equal opportunities for success? While addressing this topic, some questions arise: What is the historical background of education and schools in each nation? What is the current status of literacy in both countries? Are there inequality in learning opportunities for children in China and in the United States? What are some possible reasons for unequal access to education?
