Rural education improves, but more efforts needed

Author  :       Source  :    Chinese Social Sciences Today     2017-01-06

The shortage of teaching faculty in compulsory education in China’s rural areas has been relieved as a result of a number of policies, according to the Report on Rural Education Development in China 2016 by the Research Institute of Rural Education at Northeast University, released on Dec. 26. These policies include providing subsidies for rural teachers and encouraging college graduates to teach in compulsory education schools in rural areas. As of the end of 2015, China had provided subsidies of about 7.4 billion yuan for over one million teachers who worked in areas with large-scale poverty. Despite this achievement, the report suggests the imbalance of education between counties remains unsolved, the education quality in rural areas needs to be further improved and the education for the children of migrant workers deserves more attention.
