Running schools according to law is the practice of building a state under the rule of law in education
The Outline of the National Medium and Long-Term Education Reform and Development Plan (2010-2020) states that the program of modern school system is: the separation of political school from management, the separation of management and operation, the establishment of a modern school that runs schools according to law, self-management, democratic supervision and social participation System, which represents China's understanding of the avant-garde of modern schools in 2010 and is still not sure of its realization in 2020.
Running schools according to law instead of running schools with administrative instructions or administrative affiliation is the external premise of the modern school system. Schools established according to law naturally acquire the basic right to run their own schools. Such autonomous power does not belong to the principal or individual, but to organizations such as the council. https://www.journalfirst.org/running-schools-according-to-law-is-the-practice-of-building-a-state-under-the-rule-of-law-in-education.html
