Abstract: The core of new urbanization lies in people’s urbanization. To realize people’s urbanization, the most important thing to do is promote the equalization of basic public service including the compulsory education provision. Nowadays, there exist grave inequality in China’s compulsory education provision, e.g. the overt disparity in the distribution of public education finance, the conspicuous unequal appropriation of infrastructure and facilities, and the widespread selective ignorance and differential treatment in education. To equalize the compulsory education provision, it’s essential to increase the government’s accountability and deepen the system reform of basic public service. Also, it’s imperative to innovate the educational administration by mobilizing the educational authority, transform the orientation of schooling and enhance the democratic participation and equal development in the educational process.

Key words: new urbanization, compulsory education provision, equalization of basic public service
