Nine-year compulsory education refers to the education system implemented in China to guarantee the right of school-age children and adolescents to receive education, which includes six years of primary education and three years of junior high school education. However, China has not given high attention to the education system after the nine-year compulsory education. This paper focuses on the shortcomings of China’s current compulsory education system and why China needs to integrate high school studies into its compulsory education system. This paper is analyzed by applying a literature review with data from the Chinese Ministry of Education and the Chinese Bureau of Statistics. It can be concluded that the inclusion of high school education in compulsory education will enhance the number of high-skilled workers in different Chinese industries as a major step in China’s globalization process to achieve its development goals.
