Poor stu­dents free from tu­ition fees

China Daily (USA) - - POLICY REVIEW -

The min­istries of fi­nance and ed­u­ca­tion jointly pub­lished a doc­u­ment on the ex­emp­tion of tu­ition fees for high school stu­dents from fam­i­lies with eco­nomic dif­fi­cul­ties. The doc­u­ment states that stu­dents from poor fam­i­lies may be ex­empt from pay­ing tu­ition fees, start­ing in the au­tumn se­mes­ter this year, but that their ac­com­mo­da­tion fees will not be waived. High schools will re­ceive fund­ing from lo­cal gov­ern­ment fi­nance de­part­ments to cover costs.
