On January 7, China began to solicit public opinion on its "Outline for National Mid-Term and Long-Term Educational Reform and Development Planning." When interviewed by the press on January 8, Han Qinglin, an expert in strategic issue studies who participated in designing the programme outlines and an inspector of the Education Department of Hebei Province, said that for many years China's outstanding problems in education have boiled down to three aspects.

"The first problem lies in the difficulties in entering school. The most prominent issue is whether the national and local governments can provide enough opportunities for education and whether students can afford schooling."

Han noted that the quality of education is the second problem. This is one of the significant core issues that the programme outlines will address. With the economic and social development of China, the demand for education at a higher level and of better quality is greater than ever.

"The third problem is post-graduation employment." Han believes that whether or not school education can better enable students to find jobs so as to promote economic and social development and to meet the demands of the general public for higher living standards is a deep concern for ordinary people.
