Netizens vote against publishing entrance exam scores

The educational department of Shanxi province announced this year again that it will not publicize top scorers of the college entrance exam, which has provoked much discussion.

Peopledaily.com.cn conducted an online survey "Do you prefer to publicize top scorers?" on July 4.

There were 1126 votes as of midnight on July 5, and of those, 761 people prefer not to publicize top scorers, representing 67.6 percent of the gross, while 220 people welcome publicizing top scorers, representing 19.5 percent of the gross, and 145 people or 12.9 percent said they do not mind.

It is not difficult to see that the majority of voters hold a negative attitude toward the practice.

Those voters against the practice said the current single evaluation system embodies China's examination-oriented education that has now been turned into a blind pursuit of validation. China needs talents in all walks of life just as the Chinese proverb goes: every profession produces its own top most master. It is not only top scores that produce top masters, they say.

But those who hold a supportive view responded that to publicize top scorers is the best way to reward students for years of hard study. This will also play an incentive role to those students who will take the college entrance examination in the future.

人民网调查:逾六成网友反对公布高考状元

7月4日,人民网针对山西省今年再次不公布高考状元与排名一事,在人民调查栏目进行了“您是否赞成公布高考‘状元’”网上调查。截至5日0时,共有1126人参与了此次投票,其中,不赞成公布高考状元的共有761票,占总投票数的67.6%;赞成公布高考状元的共有220票,占总数的19.5%;无所谓与其他共145票,占12.9%。由此可见,大多数网友对于高考状元的公布是持否定态度的。

持赞成观点的网友认为,公布高考状元名单是对学子十年寒窗苦读的认可,同时对即将参加高考的学生也能够起到良好的激励作用,但是大肆的炒作会造成不良影响,应该制止。也有网友认为“中国素有状元情结,而这种情结到现在已经变成了盲目的热炒和追捧,单一的评价正是应试教育的集中体现,我们还需要各个领域优秀的人才,行行出状元,而不是只有分数出状元”。
