Five schools of Ningbo to implement the modern school system

Ningbo recently held a meeting on the trial implement of the modern school system. At the meeting, five schools: Ningbo High School, Ningbo No.3 High School, Ningbo Business School, Yongjiang Vocational High School, and Ningbo International School are listed in the pilot schools.

According to the plan, in the following two or three years, Ningbo is going to adjust the relationships between the government, the school and the society so as to establish the basic framework of a modern school system characteristic of "running schools according to the law, democratic supervision and social participation".

The major conflict between school and student's parents is that the parents do not know about the affairs of the school. In the new modern school system, the school should establish a parents' committee, a board of education, or a committee of the school's affairs, in which personnel from the neighborhood community and related professionals should participate in the management and supervision of the school. With the implement of the system, in such affairs involving the interest of the students as the purchase of school uniforms and textbooks, the school or related teacher can make a suggestion or a plan with necessary explanations and the parents' committee should make the decision. In such a system, parents should have greater right to information, right to participation and right to supervision.


In the future, the school should establish an internal management mechanism that encourages the teaching stuff to participate in the management of the school. A mechanism should be established to find other positions for the redundant personnel of the school. An assessment system of teachers should be established.

The enlargement of the discretion of schools is promising to bright forth changes to schools. According to the Measures on the Piloting Work of Modern School System, The schools should have discretionary powers in such affairs as choosing the mode of school management, the setup of specialties, enrollment, teachers' assessment, expenditure and so on.
