Shandong Province's Education Reform Policy Worth Applause
    2008-06-09 10:51:30     CRIENGLISH.com

The education administration in Shandong province recently stipulated that no forms of calculation on the college enrollment rate would be allowed, and that students' exam results must be kept secret to safeguard their privacy.

The Beijing News carries a commentary saying that this move is worth a big round of applause, because it can help teachers and students focus on actual education rather than scores.

The article goes on to say that in the past, it was often education administrations who leaked the secret information of students' exam results. Therefore, regulations are also needed to punish those who invade students' privacy.

In addition, the article says schools should pay more attention to students' personal development, rather than merely focus on their scores. Meanwhile, the local government should try to strike a balance between schools when it is allocating educational resources.

Finally, the commentary advises that public attention on the college entrance examination be minimized. Instead of always pursuing the "best schools", parents should pick the most suitable ones for their children's overall development.
