It is compulsory for school children to sleep at 10, even if the homework is not completed in China

It is compulsory for school children to sleep at 10, even if the homework is not completed in China

The debate over a directive has sprung up in China's Zhejiang province these days. The reason is, new guidelines issued for school children. These include more attention to sleeping time than homework. Under the new rule, it is mandatory for all children to sleep before 10 o'clock here.

Bedtime is suggested at 9 P.M for students from primary schools. They can do this even if their homework is not completed. Parents are criticizing this rule. They named it the 'homework curfew'. Parents argue that this will make the children fall behind in the competition.

Do not conduct additional studies on holidays

The Department of Education of East Zhejiang Province has published a draft containing 33 points. It suggests an ideal time for students to sleep with parental permission. Even if they have not completed the work given to them from school. In this, family members have been suggested not to compete with others. Children should not be given additional education during weekends and holidays.

Put pressure on children for Gaokao exams

In addition to schooling in China, parents are also involved in additional activities by parents. Parents pressurize children to study because they have to take the Gaokao examination to enter the University of China. This is considered to be the most difficult test. This is the only way to get into university. So parents put more pressure on children from the school itself.

Parents worry about children falling behind

The major concern of the parents is that they will fall behind in the competition due to less burden of homework on the children. They say that today's phase is exam-based, so children cannot be allowed to relax. Parents on social media are demanding the withdrawal of such rules.
