In this paper, the data of educational funds at all levels in China were divided into five groups for comparison and evaluation by Gini coefficient with respect to the allocation structure by researching the allocation structure of educational funds at the four-stage education in regular primary schools, regular junior secondary schools, regular senior secondary schools and general institutes of higher education based on the educational expenditures at all levels of governments in 31 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in China from 2005 to 2018. The study found that with the increase of years, the overall Gini coefficient of all levels of education showed a downward trend; the results of regional comparison showed that the central region had the best level of fairness in all levels of education, followed by the western region and the eastern region the worst; in the four-stage education, the contribution of regional differences in regular senior secondary schools is the largest, and that of general institutes of higher education is the smallest. Suggestions are put forward to optimize the allocation structure of educational funds, including further exploring the structural role of educational financial investment while maintaining it at all levels; realizing the transition from equal access to education at all levels in a small region to nationwide; continuing to optimize educational fairness at all levels, focusing on improving the equal access to regular senior secondary schools; strengthening the radiation capacity of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou and improving the equal access to education at all levels in the eastern region.
