Storyline


Authorities in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region on Monday refuted some Western media reports biased about the management of schools and education in the region, and the protection of minority ethnic cultures.

Elijan Anayit, a spokesman from the information office of the local government, said the gross enrollment rate of pre-school education is 95.95 percent and 99.9 percent of school-age children are enrolled in primary schools in the region now.

Xinjiang has built more than 12,000 schools to meet the growing educational demand and spent 86.1 billion yuan on education in 2019 alone, Elijan Anayit said at a press conference in Urumqi, capital city of the region.

Of the students body, about 12.94 percent in primary schools and 44.68 percent in middle schools are enrolled in boarding schools, he added.

"The gross enrollment rate of pre-school education is 95.95 percent, and 99.9 percent of school age children are enrolled in primary schools. We have realized full coverage of nine-year compulsory education around the region, and four prefectures in southern Xinjiang provide 15-year free education to all children, from kindergarten to senior middle school. The government spending on education for 2019 is estimated to be 86.1 billion yuan, with 6.93 billion appropriated for students funding, benefiting 4.25 million students," said Elijan Anayit.

Some Western media reports claimed the Xinjiang government "sends children to boarding school, separating them from their parents".

To refute the biased media reports, the spokesman stressed the fact that many students live in remote, isolated areas due to the vastness of Xinjiang region and to go to boarding school goes a long way in helping their studies.

As a typical example, a father of one boarding school child is invited to speak to the press. The father said his family lives far away from the school and he did not have enough time to take care of the kid. As a best choice, they sent the kid to the boarding school.

"My name is Jappar Abdulla. I'm a farmer in Baghchi Town, Hotan County of Hotan prefecture, I do not have much time to take care of my children because I am busy with my work and my home is far away from school. I could not help my kid with his homework. So my child is in boarding school where he can have even better food than at home, as schools provide delicious meals and after-meal fruits. Their dormitories are well-looked after and teachers are very responsible. My child is very happy to go to school and his grade is improving. There is no need for me to worry about him. What's more, my child eats and studies at school for free," said Abdulla.

Besides, the schools carry out sessions in Putonghua, the standard spoken and written language in China, to guarantee educational results, Elijan Anayit added, while making efforts to fully protect the students' right to learn and use their mother tongue.

The curriculum design and examinations of primary and middle schools have included subjects of ethnic minority languages, and schools are active to organize traditional cultural activities of ethnic minorities, the spokesman said, stressing all these have effectively promoted the inheritance and development of ethnic minority languages and cultures.
