Since the 1980's , with the worldwide reform movement in the public sector , there has been growing criticism on the public school's bureaucracy system . However , there are misunderstandings in people's recognition of and their criticism to the public school bureaucracy system . Therefore , we should adopt objective and rational attitudes toward this system to clarify the misunderstandings . Firstly , the concept of bureaucracy itself is neutral . Secondly , the problem of public school is the problem of development . Thirdly , there are reasons for the existence of bureaucracy in the public school itself . The inefficiency of bureaucracy does not only lie in the public school , and the private school is not always more efficient than the public school . What we need to do is to change our critical attitudes to the disadvantages of bureaucracy system of the public school and to try to explore rational ways to overcome them . Therefore , we should work out feasible strategies in practice , such as empowering schools to take charge of their own development , creating its internal incentive mechanism and making public its internal affairs .
