The book is based on the school, with thematic topics as the main line, respectively presenting school-running institution reform, education leadership and management institution reform at the macro-level; school leadership and management institution, curriculum and teaching material institution, teacher institution and education evaluation institution at the micro-level; and the examination enrollment and admission institution, the education supervision institution, the education finance institution and the education opening institution as an important support for school education. This three-dimensional institution analysis shows that China’s education institution and education reform in the past 40 years is a gradual process of continuous standardization and rule of law from the promotion of point reforms with education policies and regulations to the regulation of education order with education laws in promotion of the construction of education institutions. It is also a process of empowering by the rule of law, promoting consultation and co-governance, and stimulating the vitality of various educational stakeholders. It’s a process from regulation to empowerment.
