While i was studying abroad in Spain and China, I found that, although there are many differences between two countries, i feel that they share some similarities in various aspects. My thesis will be a comparative study focusing on the problems of the educational system in Spain and China. In order to understand about the problem, I will also talk about the history of the educational systems in both countries, since the beginning of the twentieth century. Furthermore, this thesis will also explore the changes in both countries after the Franco regime, and the Post-Mao era, so that readers will know about the progress governments in both countries have been made in order to improve the educational system.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
