In theory, education is a booster of economic development. When the development of the two is synchronized, their mutual promotion effect will be most significant. However, in reality, the development of both sides is often not synchronized, and education is mostly lagging behind economic development needs. One of China’s critical problems is that the development of the economy and education is out of balance, and the development of education is seriously lagging behind the economic level. Therefore, many unconventional education abnormalities have been derived. This is not only the inevitability of the unbalanced development of economy and education but also the final result of social self-repair to achieve a certain balance. This aspect puts forward higher requirements and challenges for the balanced development of economy and education, and at the same time, creates conditions for further in-depth reforms.
