The Academic Report

Dr. Liu Junyan

In the report, Dr. Liu Junyan introduced her research experience and research plan to the teachers and students present, and made an academic report on the theme of "Parental Roles, Responsibilities, and Education Choices in a Marketised Educational Environment". With the help of paternalism and consumer choice theory, this paper expounds in detail the motivation, reasons and process of parents choosing out-of-school education as consumers under the background of educational marketization. Through parents' choice of out-of-school education, this paper deeply discusses the group differences of parents with different social and economic status for their role orientation and responsibility construction in the development of children's education. Dr. Liu Junyan's report aroused strong interest of the teachers and students present, and they had in-depth and enthusiastic exchanges and discussions.
