||The research applied qualitative methods such as historical approach, documentary analysis and semi-structural interview survey to collect data, so as to explore how would the rotation of ruling parties influence the certification of education taken in the Mainland China. It has been a decade since the policy of such certification was initiated by the KMT President Lee Teng-Hui and followed by DDP President Chen Shui-Pien. Though the approach had been set perfectly, it just could not be promulgated and implemented, the KMT government led by President Ma Ying-Chiu had finished the legal procedures for the certification of education taken in the Mainland China and the permission of PRC students to study in Taiwan, but the legislation limits the certification of medical education taken in the Mainland China, and PRC student are prohibited from studying relevant departments of national security and registering the exams for civil services and any licenses. What on earth are the crucial factors for those situations? That’s the very problems the study would like to explore. |
There were 4 main research purposes for the study to take:
(1) To explore the reasons why such certification policy constituted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) would change.
(2) To expound how the rotation of ruling parties influenced the policy change for constituting the certification of education taken in the Mainland China.
(3) To research the approach and process for MOE to forward and lay out the policy of certificating the education taken in the Mainland China.
(4) To explore the ultimate factors of decision-making for such certification policy.
As browsing the research conclusion generally, it could find that
1. The MOE couldn’t independently dominate the permission of PRC students to study in Taiwan and the certification of education taken in the Mainland China, but only has the competence to lay out relevant approaches.
2. The certification of education taken in the Mainland China was not purely educational issue, but public issue that was politicized.
3. Taiwan is a democratic country, any decision-making related to public affairs would have to emphasize political consultations and respect the perception of the people.
4. The policy of certifying the education taken in the Mainland China was decided by the ruling party’s domestic and foreign policy toward the Mainland China.
