Zhu Yongxin, deputy secretary-general of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the country's top political advisory body, said that while schools have taken measures to reduce students' workloads, after-school institutions have increased the burden.
As a leading education expert, Zhu said his proposals for this year's two sessions mainly focus on that area and the culture sector.
Regarding international cooperation in education, he said China will not slow its opening-up in the field and will enter a high-level and quality-oriented phase. The country will continue to promote the quality and efficacy in this field to serve its pursuit in high-quality development, according to Zhu.
