According to the World Bank, in 2008 over 40 million Chinese people or 4.5% live below the national poverty level (para. 3). The lack of resources to develop sustainable economic ecosystems present an opportunity for indigenous innovative approaches to increase both prosperity and the efficacy of compulsory education in underserved areas across the country (World Bank, 2010). China is at a juncture and poised to extend its global economic influence. This paper examines social entrepreneurship (Yunus, 2010) that can be integrated into China’s educational system curricula to raise the quality of education and better prepare graduates to prosper economically in local, rural communities. Furthermore, this paper explores if existing social entrepreneurship structures support China’s 13th Five-Year Plan (Koleski, 2017), specifically to expand educational opportunities in the form of new programs to increase economic prosperity for the people of China.
