Since 1964, China's literacy rate has climbed from 66% to 96% while the number of high school and college graduates has skyrocketed. Mapping China's education levels from 1964-2010.

by USCT Editors, Amy Zheng

While China's economic growth since the 1970s has been fueled by manufacturing and expanding global trade, the country's continued competitiveness in the international arena will hinge on its ability to innovate and develop domestic industries and products. Education plays a crtiical role in that formula, yet for a country of 1.3 billion people, providing access to primary and higher education opportunities for urban and rural citizens is a challenge. China's National Population and Family Planning Commission reports the national census data on education from 1964-2010. Since 1964, China's literacy rate has climbed from 66% to 96% while the number of high school and college graduates has skyrocketed. The majority of the population, however, still only attains an elementary or middle school level of education.
