"My instructor forced me to practice even though I am exhausted," said a student who called the police for help because he felt too tired in the military training of a high school in Nanjing city, capital of east China's Jiangsu province.

According to the National Defense Education Law of China, college students and students in high school should participate in the military training. Generally the training is set in August before the start of a new term and in October after the National Day. It has been implemented for many years that students who enter high school take part in military training. The student calling for police has drawn the attention of netizens and triggered a heated discussion.

Educators: Military training exercise can strengthen physiques and temper people's will.

Some educators believe that military training offers a wonderful opportunity for students to strengthen physiques and temper wills. Students will become the 'greenhouse flowers' if they cannot bear a few days of military training.

Netizens: We are back to the days like before after one week's military training.

Some parents worry that students' health is at risk if they have excess military training. Some netizens think the impact of military training can only last for a week and everything will be like before after that. The biggest benefit is they can establish relationship between students quickly.

Experts: Military training should be more scientific and humane

Huang Guangmin, a physician with Sports Medicine Institute in the General Administration of Sport, admits the function of military training in an interview. Meanwhile, he stresses the necessity of making it more scientific and humane. Students have differences in physical fitness and vary in exercise intensity. In the scotching summer, high-intensity training will inevitably make some students exhausted.
