Part I of the book is dedicated to the current revival of Confucianism-inspired jiaohua, that is, education associated with a transformative dimension. The objective of this chapter is to contextualize the current revival of Confucian education by tracing lines of continuity that ran across the twentieth century. It introduces institutions (e.g., traditional schools, or sishu, and Confucian academies, or shuyuan) and projects that aimed at perpetuating or regenerating Confucian education. It also proposes a brief overview of the status ascribed to classical texts—and especially Confucian texts—in school curriculums and it introduces debates that have taken place about the importance to ascribe to those texts.

Keywords:   jiaohua, Confucian education, classics reading, traditional schools, sishu, shuyuan, contemporary Confucianism, Liang Shuming, redemptive societies, Jiaoyu zazhi
