Lu Jie - A Woman Educator of Standing

  • Ruth Hayhoe
Part of the CERC Studies in Comparative Education book series (CERC, volume 17)


Lu Jie was born in 1930 into the family of a professor in Shanghai, China’s most open and international city at the time. She grew up in the turbulent period of the Sino-Japanese War, and the Civil War. In 1949 she made a crucial decision, which she has never regretted – to refuse her father’s help to go the United States for higher studies and join the Communist underground in its struggle for China’s liberation. Her older brother Lu Ping made the same decision, and became known internationally many years later. He was the official in charge of Beijing’s Hong Kong-Macao office over the crucial period of Hong Kong’s return to China, from the late 1980s to 1997.
