In the future, what are the considerations to ensure that students can learn and teach?
Chen Xiyuan said that the Party Central Committee and the State Council attach great importance to the work of scholarship and financial aid for students with financial difficulties.
At present, my country has established a relatively complete national student subsidy policy system, which has realized "not letting a student drop out of school due to family financial difficulties" in the system, which provides a strong guarantee for learning and teaching.
Among them, pre-school education: In accordance with the principle of "local first, central subsidy", local governments will subsidize children in financial difficulties, orphans and disabled children from families in inclusive kindergartens.
Compulsory education: Tuition and miscellaneous fees are exempted for all compulsory education students in both urban and rural areas, textbooks are provided free of charge, living expenses are subsidized for students from poor families, and nutritional dietary subsidies are provided for rural compulsory education students in poverty-stricken areas.
Ordinary high school education: provide national bursaries for students with financial difficulties, and exempt students with financial difficulties such as original files and registration cards.
Secondary vocational education: tuition exemption for all rural students, urban agriculture-related majors and students with financial difficulties in families, students in ethnic areas, and opera performance students, and for first and second-year agriculture-related students and non-agricultural-related students with family financial difficulties State grants.
Chen Xiyuan pointed out that the full implementation of various student financial aid policies has effectively reduced the financial burden of financially disadvantaged student families, strengthened the people's sense of gain, and made greater contributions to running a satisfactory education for the people and promoting economic and social development.
First, it has ensured that students from poor families do not drop out of school due to economic problems, promoted the increase in enrollment and consolidation rates at all stages of education in our country, and promoted educational equity and social equity.

In the next step, the Ministry of Education will comprehensively improve the service level of student financial assistance, and further weave and secure the student financial assistance network.
One is to work hard to improve policies.
According to the level of economic and social development and the assistance needs of students with financial difficulties, the scope and standards of funding will be adjusted in a timely manner to further improve the funding policy to provide solid policy guarantees for students from families with financial difficulties to successfully enroll, complete their studies, and grow into talents.
The second is to work hard on standardized management.
Further standardize the student funding management system, standardize the supervision and management responsibilities at all levels, standardize student funding procedures, standardize fund management, and standardize information management.
The third is to work hard on precise funding.
Efforts to achieve accurate budget allocation, accurate funding targets, accurate funding standards, and accurate funding time.
The fourth is to work hard on funding and educating people.
