Default China to spend RMB3 billion in after-school education

China’s central government will pool RMB3 billion (about $44.12) of lottery earnings to support the building and operation of after-school facilities.

The statement read ‘After-school education will be expanded’ thus fitting in withthe National Human Rights Action Plan of China (2009-2010).

It said that every county (district) across the country will have one venue for after-school activities to guarantee the right of minors to after-school education by 2010.

The plan said that priority will be given to compulsory education and rural education.

The nine-year compulsory education wants to achieve a net enrollment rate of 99% in elementary schools, gross enrollment rate of 98% in junior high schools, and retention rate of 95% for students during three years of junior high school. As no other country in the world achieves those figures this is almost an impossible dream.

China.com reports the efforts to eliminate illiteracy among young and middle-aged people will continue, to cut the illiteracy rate among them to below 4%.

The state will make sure that almost all the children of migrant workers will receive nine-year compulsory education, children in medium-sized and large cities and economically developed areas will receive three years of pre-school education, and the number of rural children receiving one-year pre-school education will be increased markedly.
