New school, new life. Will 'double reduction' lead to a fairer education?

It is very good that our country has made some forceful measures to do so. But is it really it is? 

I don't know why there are so many parents began concerns much about their children's education. When I was a child, I never read so more. And I know when the school is off, we all go out to have fun instead of reading and writing at some after-school classes.

The thing is this: will we really change our goals. If not, we now change our path. Will the path lead to the goal? If not, the path is useless, and a barden.

Double reduction policy might not lead to a more relax school life.

It's a great idea!

Inner volume will cause too much burden but no use! I mean is that if there is a mysteries just like KUI HUA BAO DIAN which have been distributed to everyone so peoples have to castrate themselves to ensure they are powerful enough to keep they are safety.

So… Interrupt this deformed industrial chain is the most useful and wise way.

I don't agree with that. The policy aims to reduce the academic pressure on primary and middle school students. It does not mean that education will fail. On the contrary, the double reduction policy helps to improve the level of classroom teaching. Many parents worry about their children's grades dropping. But the number of hours spent in education has actually decreased for all students. But teaching time was reduced equally for all students. At the same time, this pair echoes another education policy to enhance talent diversion. In order to cope with the coming aging society, it is also conducive to the concentration of higher education resources in society. But also to support the transformation of society.

Well, I think the policy is good for kids. Because too much homework will let them get bored to study and live a not happy life. If a kid do not like something and he will not learn it well and it is bad for our county to screening talents. Involution make those students generating pressure and anxiety. Every kids should have a happy childhood. Do not let the Involution destroy kids because they are our future.

I think so, less hw less stress.

Students will have more time focus on developing their own ability and strength.

Schools no longer focus on test nor classify students. Instead, set up unique teaching method towards different students.

As a university student in Jinan, I think nomatter the policy is useful or not, the most significant point is teaching students how to respect other people and loving to share. If not, our students will meet hard time.

It depends, as far as I'm concerned. 

For one, it helps students reduce the amount of homework they have. I've heard that some teachers in schools do reduce the amount of homework assigned to students. Perhaps it is beneficial for students who are absorbed in their studies and do not have time to play outside.

For another, does the measure relieve the stress of parents? 

Before double reduction, there was vicious competition between students, resulting in the thriving marketing of after-school tutoring, especially in big cities. After the policy came into effect in July this year, cram schools began to transform into public welfare organizations and not hold classes on holidays and weekends. That means that many parents who used to send their children to after-school tutoring must now take them home or place them in school custody, which does not help to alleviate the anxiety caused by test-oriented teaching or the study environment in school, nor does it make parents aware of the importance of physical activity and the arts for a well-rounded approach to their children's education.

I think the root of the anxiety arises from parents' worries that their offspring could lose out in the race to get into a good university.Therefore, the more important thing is: if there does exist a distribution in the examination for entrance to senior secondary, which is a 50/50 chance of getting into high school, why don't we pay more attention to those who cannot enroll in senior high school, and put more effort into strengthening the professional skills of vocational high school graduates, as well as raising the salaries and social status of those who do?

If we can ease the inequality of occupations whereby students will be employed after graduating, then we can reduce the concern their parents are experiencing now. And I believe that is a necessary step toward achieving common prosperity.

Put it another way, there is no absolute fairness in the world, but a good education should not be the monopoly of the rich, either. Cutthroat competition may prompt some students with poor grades to embrace a passive attitude known as "lying flat", yet after double reduction, they have a new chance to compete, and the policy allows them to win back on grades or to prove themselves. This places new demands on school teachers, who need to improve their teaching skills in an attempt to let students learn clearly and thoroughly in class rather than in cram schools.

So other supporting measures, except double reduction, are significant. I think the double reduction policy is merely one component of a wider policy. Let's look forward to more equitable education.
