CHINA NEARS ANNUAL ENROLLMENT GOAL FOR SECONDARY VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS

China Education News    

The Ministry of Education said that secondary vocational schools nationwide had admitted 8.2 million students by November 1, nearing the annual enrollment goal of 8.3 million. Many believe China currently suffers from a shortage of skilled workers and technicians, which is stifling the modernization of China’s manufacturing industry. The Chinese government has pledged greater efforts to develop secondary vocation education in the next decade, according to the national education blueprint for the next decade.
