Teachers education is divided into two cate-gories. (1) Teachers colleges,

which are designed to train teachers for kindergartens and primary schools.

In the past, they used to be junior colleges admitting junior high graduates.

For enhancing teacher quality, in 1986, these junior colleges became 4-year

colleges admitting only senior high graduates. (2) Normal universities,

training teachers for secondary schools, also admit senior secondary

graduates to receive four years of education. Teachers for universities and

colleges mainly come from graduate institutes. Recently, the expansion of

education has been very fast, and the quality of teachers has been upgraded
