| The institutions on school staffing are not effective enough. School staffing fulfills important functions in the assignment of teaching tasks, teacher personnel management, the accounting for financial allocations, and the supervision of personnel authority. It is found that school-based teacher personnel management, the principle of quota control, the mismatch between financial authority and expenditure capacity, and the flexibility of the institutions on school staffing are the causes of the problems in school staffing. Legally defining the responsibilities and powers of different entities in the establishment of staffing standard, quantity approval, allocation of staff, and supervision of staffing management is an effective means to resolve problems in school staffing. Specific measures include the central government setting staffing standards by law and adjusting them regularly, substantially authorizing county governments to approve the amount of teaching staff, coordinating teacher personnel management on a county basis, managing school staffing independently from other public staffing system, clearly distributing the responsibilities for funding teacher salary, and establishing a supervision system of the school staffing management by the public, the People’s Congress and superior governments.
