The reform of the title system of primary and secondary school teachers should be carried out in an all-round way, and senior titles should be set up so as to break the ceiling of primary and secondary school teachersprofession. A team of high-quality professional and innovative teachers with noble ethics, exquisite professional skills, reasonable structure and full of vitality is taking shape.
