Govt goes to public in search of college heads (4)

By Cheng Yingqi  (China Daily)

When Zhang gave his campaign speech, he found that students, professors and staff and even retired university staff and alumni of the Southwestern University of Finance and Economics were sitting in the hall listening to his speech.

"To ensure fair competition, all the candidates handed out our cell phones in the interviews," he was quoted in a report by the newspaper.

However, Xiong Bingqi, the education expert, said the effect of the public selection is "rather limited".

"First, although any candidates who meet the requirement can participate in the public selection, the expert committee who decide the result are from the ministry rather than any independent college councils," he said.

"Second, the selection included public opinion evaluation on the candidates, but the ministry did not disclose the results to the public.

"To make some real progress on reducing the administrative power in universities, the ministry will still have to improve the public selection."
