MOE wants to broaden gaokao access

(Global Times)

10:26, November 27, 2012

The Ministry of Education (MOE) is sending inspection teams to push Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong to come up with new policies that open the national college entrance examinations, or gaokao, to students of long-term non-residents of those cities.

The MOE has set a deadline of the end of this year for all education authorities to develop policies that will allow students whose parents do not possess a local hukou or permanent residents card for the city where they received their high school education. Only six provinces have submitted plans for expanding access to the gaokao of non-residents.

Du Yubo, vice minister of the MOE, said at a recent ministry-level meeting that the inspection teams will help major cities to address the balance between resource constraints, quality education and equality of access.

Yuan Guiren, minister of the MOE, announced in March that local education authorities must address the inequity in education opportunity. Currently, students whose parents are from outside the jurisdiction in which they attend public school, must return to their parent's home to take the gaokao even when they have not studied there for many years.
