Abstract: Based on data collected from 11 provinces and municipalities in China,this research describes and analyses the financial investment in teacher training in compulsory education by different levels of governments and the distribution of expenses among different parties. It is found that the central government has increased its investment in recent years,but can not meet the demands due to huge regional disparities. Four types of local financial investments in teacher training are identified: sufficiently supported,support guaranteed,nationally supported,financially lacking. About 45% of the subjects report that their personal expenses in the training are too heavy,and the teachers from the middle and western parts of China report heavier burden than those from the eastern part. Based on the above findings,this article gives some suggestions for improvement,such as increasing financial support to teacher training in the middle and western parts of China,establishing an all- rounded financial insurance mechanism for rural teachers,basing financial investment on the improvement of training effectiveness as the main goal,and taking into consideration the needs of teachers’ work- place learning in making financial decisions.
