Education management for foreign children in primary and secondary schools has become an issue unignorably in promoting the internationalization of education in China. This paper clarifies the characteristics of the formalization of “learning in regular class” and the classification of foreign students’ education management through analyzing the foreign students’ admission policies formulated and promulgated by Shanghai Municipal Education Commission. Combined with analyses on the characteristics of the foreign students’ education management system in Japan’s primary and secondary schools, this paper proposed some improvement suggestions. For example, Shanghai should strengthen the construction of the Chinese language teaching system, actively promote the close cooperation between the education administrative departments at all levels and the schools while fully considering the diversity of foreign students to maintain their cultural characteristics.
