Should 1131 yuan be given to students?

Popularity 1Viewed 1570 times 2016-5-29 09:40 |Personal category:education|System category:News| schools, hearing, middle, policy

You will be surprised when hearing that tuition and fees was returned to students in the middle schools in Futian district of Shenzhen. In Shenzhen there are 10 districts. Only Futian district implements this policy. For a student of middle school of provincial grade, the tuition and fees for a semester in total is 1131 yuan. This policy has been carried out since 2015.

         The purpose to implement this policy is to let more students enjoy free education for senior students given by the government and have every family’s burden reduce. Every family supports this policy, especially the students, because the cash of 1131 yuan will be directly remitted through banks to students’ accounts not their parents’. After getting the money, students will spend it themselves, some of whom do not tell their parents about it. You can see students talking about how they spend the money. Some of them will go to play computer games first. Some of them will go shopping. I don’t know how many of them will hand it to their parents.

         Frankly, it becomes something like a prize given to students. I am worried about it. It will change the value of a student. The money will go to their accounts each term without reasons, but they get it. What’s more, some of them do not tell their parents about it and spend it randomly, which will help students form a bad habit of spending money.

         We always advocate a saying “No pain, no gain”. It is a typical event that doesn’t agree with the saying. When kids get money this way, what direction will it take kids to? Do not let a good thing become a bad thing.

         What do you think about it?

Money is a kind of order from its master that determines the purpose how it should be spent! ----------The valuable government fund for education would be wasted if it is not totally spent on schooling!

Right. When the authority releases this bonus, they should have a perfect plan.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
