Do not worry about trying to change government mandated teaching policies. You should realize by now that changing anything outside your area of expertise is a non-sequitur. Government policies only change when government entities suggest those changes, not when the common person suggests them. The same with teaching policies, equipment, and methodologies, in educational institutes. Not much happens when a foreign teacher makes a suggestion, but when that very same idea comes from a Chinese teacher, he is lauded and praised, and the "new" ideas are implemented very quickly.

A good example of this is when I mentioned to my former university that they might want to look into getting interactive whiteboards for the classrooms, in order to cut down on the amount of chalk dust that teachers and students had to breath in on a daily basis. That idea was pooh-poohed as being "too expensive". One of the other Chinese teachers mentioned the same thing and , Voila!, interactive whiteboards were installed in all of the classrooms in time for September classes. The foreign teachers, however, were not allowed to use them for fear we would damage them, despite the fact that we had used these same ones ourselves, many times in the past. Needless to say, the Chinese teachers continued to use the chalk and boards, and the new whiteboards were all ruined from dust getting inside them.

It is laudable that you want to improve, but I think you'll find that trying to change policies and procedures is pretty much a moot point, unless you can get leaders and/or government officials on your side, who are willing to listen to your ideas.

Don't forget parents, as well. Parents hate change. They like the status-quo. As far as parents are concerned, what worked for them will also work for their children. They will not see anything as an improvement unless it benefits THEIR child first, and puts THEIR child ahead of the other children.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words
