To support primary education in the middle-west rural areas, the Chinese government initiated the Special Post Plan starting in 2006. This policy embraced a dual function: the innovative mechanism of rural teacher recruitment and management. It has been argued that the special-post teachers have become the core element in driving educational development in these zones.

This study was designed to explore its true situation by interviewing 90 informants, purposely sampled from 13 primary schools in G County of Henan Province, China, who covered a variety of posts, including educational officials, school senior administrators and teachers. Furthermore, non-participant ob-servations and text analysis of policies provided were taken for data collection. The findings show that while the Special Post Plan policy effectively alleviated the severe shortage of teachers in the rural areas and improved teacher quality, some structural constraints remained that were generated by the policy itself.
