This case study analyzes the planning of basic education in two counties of the province of Liaoning in China. It begins by describing the structure of educational governance in China,where responsibility for educational policy, planning and management is shared by the national State Education Commission, provincial Education Commissions, and county Education Bureaus. It goes on to describe the planning process in two counties, Linguyan and Jinzhou, in the province of Liaoning. The author comes to several conclusions.First, he argues that decentralization enabled rural farmers in both counties to develop a sense of ownership and investment in their schools, which fostered increasing enthusiasm for education. Second, he states that planners in both counties, despite insufficient levels of technology and material resources, have managed to effectively supervise and coordinate the delivery of educational services at the local level. Finally, however, he also finds that decentralization had led to significant and increasing regional disparities.
