China’s education has been pursuing the 4% for about 20 years. In 2011, this goal was achieved, and the figure was included in China’s publicly released budget for the first time. The Ministry of Education has concluded a ten year plan which has resulted in the allocation of 10% of the annual education expenditure towards education digitalization.
There are approximately 230 million students, 12 million K-12 teachers, and 400,000 primary and secondary schools in China.
