NEW EDUCATION LAW BY CHINA

Context:

On October 23, 2021, China passed its New Education Law with the aim of cutting the “twin pressures” of homework and off-site tutoring in core subjects.

About the new law:

  • The new law has made local governments responsible for ensuring that twin pressures on children are reduced.
  • The new law also reduces schoolwork and prohibits after-school teaching in certain key subjects on weekends and holidays.
  • It also asks parents to schedule their children's time in response to proper rest and exercise to reduce stress and to avoid excessive use of the Internet.

Background:

This law is new, in series of China’s assertive paternal hand in the year 2021. China took several moves ranging from:

  • Dealing with youngsters’ addiction to online games,
  • Deemed a form of spiritual opium.
  • Hold down the blind worship of internet celebrities.
  • On October 18, 2021, the Chinese Parliament announced that it would consider punishing parents if their minor children showed “bad behaviour” or “commit crimes”.

China’s Education System:

  • In China, education is largely controlled by a state-run public education system. It falls under the Department of Education.
  • By law, all citizens of China are required to attend school for at least nine years which is called "nine-year compulsory education". Compulsory education is funded by the government.
