China issues guideline for enhancing educational supervision, guidance
BEIJING, Feb. 19 (Xinhua) -- The general offices of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council have published a guideline for deepening the reform of the educational supervision and guidance system and mechanism in the new era.
By 2022, a socialist educational supervision and guidance system and mechanism with Chinese characteristics will be basically put in place that can work efficiently with full coverage, authoritative results and enhanced accountability for oversight, the document said.
It ordered efforts to further reform the management system for educational oversight and guidance, including improving the setup of the education oversight agencies at all levels, strengthening supervision over the performance of governments at lower levels in carrying out their educational responsibilities to ensure that the Party and the state's education policies take root.
Educational supervision and guidance agencies are also urged to develop new ways of overseeing the performance of local governments in their educational responsibilities as well as educational institutions in running schools, according to the guideline.
