Education reform would make gaokao only one factor (2)

By Cheng Yingqi (China Daily)

However, Tan conceded that while some pilot projects are already under way, full-scale changes will need time because China's gaokao is in the middle of reform and is still changing.

But the heads of some of China's finest high schools that produce the highest gaokao scores applaud his ideas.

"Competing for high-score holders is not what a world-class university should do, because it is not the students' score, but their academic achievement that makes a university outstanding," said Liu Changming, principal of Beijing No 4 High School.

"I do not want my students to regard exam scores as everything," said Zhang Zhimin, principal of Shanghai Gezhi High School, who also attended the seminar organized by the Ameson Education and Culture Exchange Foundation.

"I want them first to be healthy and virtuous, then concerned about school performance."
