Educational expenditures by the central government alone, which had increased at a rate of roughly 15 percent annually during the previous decade, leapt by almost 70 percent in school year 1968/69 to almost NT$ 977 million.
Increases in educational expenditures at the level of hsien (county) and city governments were slightly larger in nominal terms, though smaller in relative terms since expenditures at this level constituted roughly one-half of all public educational expenditures during this era.
Uniform national education policies such as Taiwan's 1968 reform might be expected to be the hardest to implement/enforce in non-urban areas, where they have the greatest potential impact but also face stronger norms (especially sexual biases) and often higher transportation and/or opportunity costs associated with schooling (see Section 2).
