 Ministry of Education: Teachers salary shall not be lower than that of civil servants to be completed by the end of the year

On the morning of that day, the Ministry of Education held a press conference to introduce the supervision and evaluation of the balanced development of compulsory education in 2019. At the meeting, Tian Zuyin, director of the office of the Education Steering Committee of the State Council and director of the education steering Bureau of the Ministry of education, said that the Ministry of education has listed the revision of the regulations on education supervision as the focus of this years annual work. In addition, the first draft of the accountability measures for education supervision has been published and will be widely consulted in the near future.

At the meeting, a reporter asked, at the beginning of this year, the general office of the CPC Central Committee and the general office of the State Council printed and distributed the opinions on deepening the reform of educational supervision system and mechanism in the new era. Could you introduce the current progress of making educational supervision grow teeth.

Tian Zuyin said that the long teeth of education supervision is a clear requirement put forward by the central leadership, and also an inevitable requirement to improve the ability of education governance in the new era. In February this year, the office of the CPC Central Committee and the State Council jointly issued the opinions on deepening the reform of educational supervision system and mechanism in the new era, which provides an important institutional guarantee for promoting the long teeth of educational supervision. He said that at present, all our work is centered on the implementation of this document. The progress of education and supervision of long teeth can be reflected in the following four aspects:

The second is to grow teeth by properly performing their functions. Long teeth is not abstract, but must be reflected in the relative independence of the organization and the accurate performance of its functions. At present, special arrangements have been made, requiring all regions to establish a new teaching executive committee in accordance with the practice of the Central Committee. At present, the State Councils education and executive committee includes 13 units, including the central organization department and the Propaganda Department of the Central Committee, which reflects the overall strengthening of the partys leadership. We require local governments to establish a new education and executive committee based on this, and at the same time set up a chief inspector and a deputy chief inspector. In the specific work, three actions have been taken recently, which are the direct embodiment of long teeth. First, one-on-one supervision opinions have been issued to six provinces of provincial government in 2019, requiring them to rectify the problems found in the supervision and report the rectification results before the end of July. Second, two notices have been issued successively for compulsory education teachers whose salary level is not lower than that of civil servants, requiring that todays salary level is not lower than that of civil servants The target task must be completed before the end of the year. As a hard task, self inspection is required to be carried out everywhere. In the second half of the year, around September and October, field inspection and supervision will be organized. The third is to issue supervision letters to 31 provincial, district and municipal governments and the general office of Xinjiang production and development corps, requiring to formulate the road map of construction drawings in accordance with the development goals and major project tasks to be paid in 2020.

The third is to grow teeth by increasing accountability. Ten inspections are better than one accountability. The documents of the central office and the state office put forward a complete set of systems from the eight aspects of supervision report, feedback, rectification, review, incentive, interview, notification, accountability, etc., which are progressive at all levels and linked. At present, according to these eight requirements, we have formulated the accountability measures for education supervision, hoping to implement these requirements one by one, and the first draft has been published.

The fourth is to grow teeth by improving the quality of the team. Educational supervision is a very professional work. The level of supervision at all levels determines the level of educational supervision. At present, according to the national supervision management measures, the national supervision has been changed, and the 11th National Supervision has been newly established. The standard of the 11th national supervision is to stress politics, dare to take responsibility and understand education, and 200 national supervisors have been hired. At the same time, the national supervision team system including the governors school consultant, national supervision consultant and national special education supervisor has been established The allocation of local supervisors at all levels has also put forward clear requirements and is being implemented one by one.
