The summer vacation is over half. How to spend the “second half” of the vacation, so that children can relax and welcome the new semester with a better mental state? For the majority of parents, we might as well calm down and do a good job in the “thinking problem”: Recently, the documents on the “double reduction” have been implemented. In the face of a package of “new policies”, are parents ready? Stop “reducing the burden inside the school and increasing the burden outside the school”. How should parents work together with the school to create a good educational environment?
The general office of the CPC Central Committee and the general office of the State Council recently issued the opinions on further reducing the homework burden and after-school training burden of students in the stage of compulsory education (hereinafter referred to as the opinions), which has attracted much attention from all walks of life. Just as environmental governance requires a “combined fist”, in the view of many people in the educational circles, the characteristics of multi-party linkage are also obvious: let school education return to the standard and constantly improve the quality of education and teaching; Strengthen the standardized management of out of school training institutions through strict governance; Alleviate parents’ anxiety and guide parents to treat their children’s education with an ordinary heart.
As a major livelihood project, the significance of “double reduction” is self-evident; In order to truly implement the heavy policy and achieve practical results, it is particularly important to achieve tacit cooperation and consensus between families and schools. As many experts said: in the face of “double reduction”, I’m afraid what really needs to be “reduced” is the desire for quick success and instant benefit in education!
Reduce the interference to the teaching order and reduce the burden for students and parents
“Students’ excessive homework burden and after-school training burden, family education expenditure and parents’ corresponding energy burden were effectively reduced within one year, achieved remarkable results within three years, and the people’s education satisfaction was significantly improved.” In the view of some scholars, the work of “double reduction” has clear practical pertinence. It is time to rectify some acts that seriously interfere with the normal teaching order of schools and infringe on the interests of the people.
When answering reporters’ questions on the opinions, the relevant person in charge of the Ministry of education mentioned that through the big data evaluation of 18600 training institutions, 680000 students and 740000 parents in 100 districts and counties in 10 provinces, a large number of primary and secondary school off campus training institutions have deeply “kidnapped” parents and students driven by utility and capital coercion.
A junior high school principal reported that a teacher conducted a thorough survey of the students and found that the new class had not started in the new semester, and the students’ studies had been uneven. Originally, classroom teaching should have benchmarked the syllabus, but now, teachers are in a dilemma“ The teaching is simple, the students have learned it outside, and no one listens in the classroom; If you teach deeply, those children who have not attended cram school still need to learn the basic knowledge. ”
On this point, Gu Mingyuan, a senior professor at Beijing Normal University, has a profound insight: many parents are coerced by training institutions and believe that if they do not send their children to off-campus training classes, they will lag behind other students. This makes China’s primary and secondary education into a two track system: one track is the free and compulsory education of the school, and the other track is the education of after-school training institutions charging high tuition fees, which not only impacts the school education order, but also expands the educational inequity.
