Taiwan Education and Training



The children in Taiwan start school at the age of six and have compulsory schooling for nine years. In 2014, compulsory schooling was extended by three years.

About 99 percent continue on three-year vocational or college preparatory high school, or on a special five-year line in college that combines high school with initial college studies. Taiwan's students are often at the forefront of international comparisons, especially in mathematics and science. There is some criticism that the school is unilaterally focused on test results and does not promote creative thinking and analysis.

China-friendly mayor of Kaohsiung is dismissed

6th June

Han Kuo-yu who was elected mayor of Kaohsiung in the fall of 2018 will be dismissed by residents of the city in a new vote. More than 900,000 Kaohsiung constituencies of more than two million participated in the vote. In order for the vote to be valid, at least 25 percent of voters were required to participate. Only 2.6 percent voted no. Voters were disappointed that Han Kuo-yu had run as a candidate in the presidential election against Tsai Ing-wen earlier this year, while many were also skeptical of his Beijing-friendly stance.
