Sample text

The most dramatic and immediately e∏ective way for Daguan to increase enrollment was to transition from boarding to day-only classes. Director Shi explained: Our growth in enrollment was made possible largely by the elimination of the boarding program. In the boarding program, to cover one class of 32 Chapter 2 twenty-eight four-year-olds, we needed four teachers, who worked on three shifts. We had a quarantine room next to the doctor’s oΩce to place sick children under medical care. Children were not sent home when they were ill.

In our interviews teachers complained about the rise of a new generation of overanxious parents, who instead of giving their children the right kind of attention, displace it into obsessing about their child’s health and complaining to the school about the scrapes and bruises that used to be considered marks of a healthy, active childhood. Teachers complain that these days normal conflicts between children lead to parents automatically siding with their own child, accusing other children of wrongdoing, and blaming the teacher for not doing her job properly.

Even with the shift to one child per family, the increasing numbers of Chinese baby boomers that reached parenting age in the 1980s meant that the overall birthrate remained high and therefore so did the demand on preschool provision. In fact, the demand for early childhood education and care grew precipitously in the 1980s and 1990s as an o∏shoot of Deng Xiaoping’s “four modernizations” movement. ” As an elite public program in a capital city, Daguan You’eryuan was expected to take a leading role in meeting this call for expanding provision.
