China passes law to reduce homework pressure on students

Date: 25 October 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • China has passed an education law that seeks to cut the “twin pressures” of homework and off-site tutoring in core subjects.
  • China’s parliament said on October 18 that it would consider legislation to punish parents if their young children exhibit “very bad behaviour” or commit crimes.
  • In recent months, the education ministry has limited gaming hours for minors, allowing them to play online for one hour on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
  • It has also cut back on homework and banned after-school tutoring for major subjects during the weekend and holidays, concerned about the heavy academic burden on overwhelmed children.
