    Cultural Revolution, –76, mass mobilization of urban Chinese youth inaugurated by Mao Zedong in an attempt to prevent the development of a bureaucratized Soviet style of Communism.

    Before the reforms, the Chinese economy was dominated by state ownership and central planning. From to , Chinese real GDP per capita grew at a rate of % per year on average, albeit with major fluctuations stemming from the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. China’s bold program of reforms launched in the late s—the move to a market economy and the opening to the outside world—ended the political chaos and economic stagnation of the Cultural Revolution and sparked China’s unprecedented economic boom.

    Several insightful observations of the influence of Mao and the Cultural Revolution on the development of contemporary Chinese education exist, but little effort has been made to examine Mao's educational thought and the educational reforms during the Cultural Revolution in the context of postmodern curriculum theories.   Fifty years ago, Mao Zedong unleashed the Cultural Revolution, a decade-long upheaval that had dramatic, often violent effects across China.
