[Explanation] Rural revitalization, education first.

Where is the rural education road in China?

How to do educational public welfare?

On April 9th, the "Emotional Yuanshan 2021 First Education Charity Sharing Festival" was held in Beijing, and many educators discussed the topic of rural education development.

  [Explanation] At the scene, Yu Minhong, chairman of New Oriental Education Technology Group, had a conversation with Zhang Bangxin, founder of Good Future Education Group.

They believe that the characteristics of rural schools tending to be small-scale are becoming increasingly prominent, and the imbalance of urban and rural education still exists.

  Because the Chinese society as a whole is still a volatile (mobile) society, with the exception of a few good rural primary schools, the number of students in most rural primary schools is declining.

Therefore, in the future, education at and above the town will become an indispensable (unavoidable) state.

There is a mismatch between urban and rural education resources. If this is the case, there will never be opportunities for rural education, so we must give more opportunities to children in rural education.

  [Explanation] How can rural students get fair and quality education?

During the exchange, the two believed that science and technology empowered rural education and promoted the balanced development of resources.

  In fact, in the field of primary and secondary schools, it is now really like "double-teacher" (double-teacher classroom) and AI classes, its tools are becoming more and more mature, and the technology is becoming more and more mature.

In the future, it is possible to reach and interact with thousands of people through AI+ data.

For the content of teaching, it is based on individual large-scale, high-quality and even personalized.

In terms of knowledge transfer, it has the opportunity to quickly bridge the gap between urban and rural areas, and can flatten this matter on a large scale.

  [Explanation] While science and technology help resources "transfusion", we must also vigorously cultivate rural teachers and principals to stimulate the "hematopoiesis" ability of rural education.

  [Concurrent] Yu Minhong, Founder and Chairman of New Oriental Education Technology Group

  In addition to our direct service to students, are there other ways to support rural education that can be done more effectively?

I think the training of principals and teachers can be further explored.

The urban and rural teachers can be trained together, and public welfare organizations can build bridges in the middle, co-cultivation, co-existence and co-development, then the prospects begin to appear.

  [Concurrent] Yang Dongping, Chairman of the 21st Century Education Research Institute

  One is teachers, and we must truly improve the remuneration of rural teachers.

And it's not just a matter of treatment, it (must) change the training model of teacher education.

Attract the best part of young people to teach.

  [Explanation] In addition, the reform and innovation of the school itself is also particularly important in the development of rural education.

Yang Dongping believes that this will create more vitality and possibilities for the reform of the rural education system.

  [Concurrent] Yang Dongping, Chairman of the 21st Century Education Research Institute

  At the core of basic education reform, the focus is on school reform.

Encourage educators to run schools and increase the autonomy of schools.

If school-level reforms are promoted on a larger scale, education can be diversified, so that we can see what a good education is like, and thus produce a demonstrative and guiding nature.

  There are many innovative schools in rural areas, and they have some things in common.

For example, it is student-oriented, emphasizing life and health, rights and personality, and students' individuality, difference, and autonomy.

We must let our children lead a healthy, civilized and dignified life.

Therefore, the future direction of the village, changing every village school is the starting point for changing the rural education system.

  [Explanation] The future of rural education needs more social resources.

The guests at the meeting hope that more people of insight and corporate organizations will pay attention to the topic of rural education and devote themselves to educational public welfare undertakings. All parties will form a joint effort to jointly promote the development of rural education.
