Gaokao delay provokes fury

Dozens of furious non-local parents shouted slogans and held signs outside the complaint office of Beijing Education Bureau Thursday, accusing the bureau of stalling over when non-Beijing registered children will be able to sit the gaokao (national college entrance examination) in the city.

The bureau told the Global Times that the issue is still under discussion, while the parents say a resolution is urgent, as gaokao registration will take place from December 1 to 5.

In March, Minister of Education Yuan Guiren said that the ministry would launch a policy concerning the non-local gaokao takers and would request the local bureaus to decide how to implement the changes.

So far Beijing education bureau has failed to issue any commitment as to when these non-local students will be able to sit the test in Beijing.

Du Guowang, one of the some-50 parents who have protested at the bureau every Thursday since September 20, said time was running out for his Beijing-educated 17-year-old son.
