Teachers tested to raise ethical standards

A new examination system in Zhejiang Province aimed at evaluating teachers' professional ethics, initiated in response in part to a recent child abuse case, has parents calling for a specific standard on what constitutes inappropriate punishment of pupils.

The Zhejiang provincial education department announced Tuesday it is soliciting public opinion from students, parents and communities through a questionnaire. The assessment will focus on teachers in primary and secondary schools and kindergartens,

"This has been initiated by the recent increase in abuse incidents in kindergartens and the serious moral problems among teachers in children's education," Chen Changlong, an official from the Zhejiang provincial education department, told the Global Times.

The assessment will deal with teachers' classroom performance and examine whether they have resorted to punishment or discriminated against certain children. It will also look at whether they had made inappropriate profits from their professions.

Many parents said it is natural for parents and teachers to have different concepts on what constitutes abuse and the lack of a specific standard will affect effective evaluation, the Hangzhou-based Qianjiang Evening News reported.
