China mulls over raising qualifications for teachers
China is considering raising qualifications for teachers in a proposed revision to the Teachers Law, minister of education Huai Jinpeng said Thursday.
Teachers will need higher educational requirements, Huai stated when delivering a report to the ongoing session of the National People's Congress Standing Committee.
An assessment process will be established to examine teachers' professional qualifications, Huai added.
The draft revision proposes establishing a system of salary distribution according to work and performance and improving the system of awarding or disciplining teachers, he said.
