The current educational resources to optimize and improve the quality of education everywhere, actively promote the adjustment of rural primary and secondary schools, and achieved remarkable results, but in the implementation process, there have been some problems. Because a large number of village primary school into the town, into the county middle school, reducing substantially the number of rural schools, many students go to school far away, insecurity increases. Financial burden on some families, the dropout rate in some areas there has been a rebound phenomenon. Young students live on campus, away from home too early and the rural living environment, the growth of students also have an adverse effect. And the school can not engage in across the board, the nearest school can significantly reduce security risks. How further from reality, considering the various factors to adjust the layout of work to do.
Minister of Education Yuan Guiren:
Adjustment of rural primary and secondary schools, most recently a focus of concern to the community. In particular, several recent school bus safety after the accident, more attention has been paid. To solve this problem, the premise of this problem is to understand the causes and processes. First, adjust the layout of a comprehensive understanding and grasp of reason. This can be summarized as National compulsory school-age population aged 6-14 from 205 million in 2000 decreased to 158 million by 2010, reducing the 47 million. National migrant workers is now about 240 million, their children either stay, or or wife. City study in 2010 Suiqian about 12 million students receiving compulsory education. Small rural schools, the teacher less, difficult for parents to worry about quality assurance, but also led to the movement of students to schools in cities and towns. From 2000 to 2010 decade, due to the above reasons, our primary school reduced by half, from 550,000 down to 260,000. Reduced one-sixth of junior high school, from 64,000 down to 55,000.
Second, adjustments need to address the layout of the new situation. Adjust the layout of integrated rural educational resources, improve the level of teachers with improved quality and efficiency of education, on the whole, should be in the affirmative. But some schools merge, there are also simplify the work, procedures are not standardized, and after the merge does not keep up with the problem of school conditions, it is should be improved. Merge after school, or stay, or do not stay. For the accommodation of students, some students after school to merge the schools far from home accommodation, the school must not only solve the problems of teaching and learning, but also to resolve to eat, live, play, health, safety, and family economic burden. Accommodation of the students go to school without either walking or riding a bicycle, accounted for 64%, or by public transport, including school buses, buses, rental cars, private cars, which also brought the traffic risk.
Third, we must strive to solve the layout adjustment problems. This includes a few points:
A school must have a clear idea of merging the principles of the school merge to take it seriously, we should give full consideration to the convenience of students to school, traffic safety, boarding school conditions and other factors. Does not merge with the conditions, the need to retain the teaching point to adhere to the winding up, and to run.
Second, we must merge to clear the school’s procedures to adjust the layout of the establishment of the school system of hearings and publicity, parents and students to fully listen to the views of village self-organization, to be scientific proof and strict procedures to merge the schools, it must first build retreat, no better accommodation of students to solve traffic problems, to solve students’ living accommodation problems.
Third, we must deal with the new situation brought about the school merge. Boarding schools to improve school conditions, increase the student dormitories, canteens and toilets and other living facilities construction, to solve students with financial difficulties living allowance. There needs to be good teaching points, currently there are nearly 70,000 teaching point, we must strive to improve their school conditions, with qualified teachers, especially the use of information technology, and teachers go to teach and improve their volunteer service, etc. teaching point of education quality. In all these efforts, the establishment of school bus system, standardized operation and management of school bus, to school students to solve traffic safety problems. Thank you.
