As to how many school-age children did not enter compulsory education schools, the Guangdong Education Department answered that in December 2018, Guangdong Province launched a provincial-wide survey of suspected out-of-school children and persuaded them to return to school. According to local verification, 298 students were discharged from home schooling (including private schools and national studies), mainly in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Huizhou, Maoming, Shanwei and other cities. At present, effective measures are being taken to persuade them to return to school.
Recently, the Ministry of Education issued a paper pointing out that in recent years, some social training institutions have unauthorized enrollment of school-age children and adolescents, carrying out full-time education and training in the name of national studies and female virtue education, replacing compulsory school education. Very few parents or other legal guardians send their children to training institutions or to study at home. There is no justification for failing to guarantee their childrens entry according to the law. Acceptance of compulsory education in school results in that the rights and obligations of relevant school-age children and adolescents to receive compulsory education cannot be realized in accordance with the law.
A survey published by some research institutes has pointed out that private schools in Guangdong have the largest number of students. Has the Guangdong Provincial Department of Education organized a comprehensive survey of how many school-age students in Guangdong have not entered compulsory education schools?
Guangdong Provincial Department of Education responded that in order to implement the Compulsory Education Law of the Peoples Republic of China and guarantee the right of school-age children and adolescents to receive compulsory education, in December 2018, Guangdong Province launched a provincial-wide survey of suspected out-of-school children and persuaded them to return to school. According to local verification, 298 students were discharged from home schooling (including private schools and national studies), mainly in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Huizhou, Maoming, Shanwei and other cities. At present, effective measures are being taken to persuade them to return to school.
According to the Guangdong Education Department, in April this year, the provincial education department, in accordance with the relevant work deployment of the Ministry of Education, deployed and carried out the investigation and rectification work of obstructing compulsory education in the whole province, requiring local education administrative departments to make illegal acts against institutions or individuals within their jurisdiction leading to non-compulsory education of school-age children and adolescents, especially under the name of national school and female morality education by the end of June this year. Full-time education and training should be carried out instead of compulsory school education; students of primary and junior high school graduating grades who are strongly reflected by the masses can not take part in regular class activities such as problem-brushing classes and tutoring classes organized by off-campus training institutions or individuals; problems such as improper implementation of school leave procedures, absence of proper sick leave and proof of long-term absence from work, and other ways of organizing learning. Instead of accepting compulsory education, we should resolutely rectify it in conjunction with relevant departments, investigate and punish together, strictly investigate and punish accountability according to law and regulations, and effectively ensure that children and adolescents of school age receive compulsory education.
According to the Guangdong Education Department, the provincial education department will organize random inspection and supervision at any time according to the investigation and rectification situation and the clues provided by the masses.
