The second plenary meeting of the Fifth Session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference was held at 9:00 am on March 7 in the Great Hall of the People, and members made speeches at the meeting.

  Huang Zhen, Vice Chairman of the Democratic Progressive Central Committee, Vice Chairman of the Shanghai Municipal Political Consultative Conference, and Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering: The title of my speech on behalf of the Democratic Progressive Central Committee is to promote the implementation of the "double reduction" policy.

  In July 2021, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued the "Opinions on Further Reducing the Burden of Students' Homework and Off-campus Training in Compulsory Education" (referred to as the "double reduction" policy). Major decisions made at a strategic height are of great significance to creating an educational ecology that the people are satisfied with, and are a major measure to ensure educational fairness.

  The "double reduction" policy is concerned by the masses and the society.

In the six months since the implementation, local party committees, governments and relevant departments have attached great importance to the implementation and achieved initial results.

After-school training institutions have been standardized, after-school services have been generally launched, students' off-campus subject training and schoolwork burdens have been significantly reduced, parents' anxiety has eased, and the educational ecology has tended to be optimized.

  Although the "double reduction" work has made a good start, there are still some practical problems: some parents' ideological concept of "only score" has not changed, there is still a lot of room for "training the excellent and making up for the poor", and relevant supporting measures need to be improved urgently.

"Double reduction" is a profound educational reform.

Implementing the "double reduction" policy is a long-term and arduous task. It is necessary to promote the "double reduction" to become a broad consensus, form a synergy of the whole society, and at the same time continue to deepen the comprehensive reform in the field of education, in order to realize the "double reduction" policy. original intention.

  First, do a good job of publicizing and interpreting policies and broadly build social consensus.

The "double reduction" policy is a return to the original intention of educating people and the law of education, and an important measure to solve the current problem of unbalanced and insufficient educational development in my country.

Starting from reducing the burden of students' heavy homework and off-campus training, ensuring the right to rest and health of young students, eliminating all kinds of illegal education behaviors, and promoting students' all-round development and comprehensive quality improvement, reflecting the country's adherence to the public welfare attribute of education.

Party committees, governments and relevant departments at all levels should further raise awareness, do a good job in the interpretation and publicity of the "double reduction" policy, and clarify the significance and goals of the "double reduction" policy, so that more parents can understand their children's future. Happiness requires a sound personality, a healthy body and the ability to actively learn, to eliminate anxiety and concerns, and make the "double reduction" policy truly rooted in the hearts of the people.

  Second, improve the basic education security system and strengthen the main position of school education.

The implementation of the "double reduction" policy has put forward higher requirements for the government, schools and teachers.

Schools should further improve the quality of teaching, and should provide classroom teaching and after-school services that meet individual needs according to the characteristics of different students.

Teachers need to have stronger professional teaching ability, multi-evaluation ability and home-school co-education guidance ability.

The government and relevant departments should issue relevant policies to improve the basic education security system, through a series of measures such as increasing the supply of teachers, increasing teacher training, strengthening financial security for after-school services, improving the construction of public welfare online education platforms, and integrating social education resources. Help and guide schools to improve their educational service capabilities and school-running vitality, improve teachers' ability levels, promote the improvement of school classroom teaching, after-school service quality and school education quality, and effectively strengthen the school's role as the main position in educating people.

  Third, deepen the comprehensive reform of education, and promote the "double reduction" policy to produce actual results.

At present, further education is still the topic that parents are most concerned about and the whole society is most concerned about, which is closely related to the reform of education evaluation and enrollment system.

In order to promote the "double reduction" work, it is necessary to deepen the comprehensive reform of education.

It is necessary to further promote the reform of the examination and enrollment system centered on quality and ability, and to change the current status quo of education that must compete for points. .

At the same time, it is necessary to improve the diversion policy of general vocational education, vigorously develop comprehensive high schools and characteristic high schools, promote the integration and diversified and characteristic development of general vocational education in high school education, improve social policies related to vocational education, and enhance the adaptability, value and quality of vocational education. attractive.

  The "double reduction" policy is a major reform measure to reshape China's basic education pattern, and it is the correct way to promote the all-round development and healthy growth of students.

We must recognize, understand and support this policy of benefiting the country and the people from the perspective of educating people for the party and cultivating talents for the country.

We believe that as long as the whole society makes concerted efforts, education that is satisfactory to the people will be ensured.
