Abstract
The research results of this paper show that: educational inequality would have negative impact to the economic growth. If the education inequality rises by 1%, the China’s economic growth rate would decline by 0.066%. And education inequality also really has important influence to economic divergence and convergence. Education inequality enlarged the regional economic disparities on during 1997-2002, however education inequality decreased the regional economic disparities at the period of 2003-2008 because China’s educational investment system has been the reconstructed, education equality has been improved greatly and the convergence rate of economic disparities has also been prompted. Therefore, improving education equality is the important measure which would be conducive to develop economy in cooperativeness and promote economic convergence.
