[Photo/uetd.gov.cn]SPEAKING TO reporters on Saturday, Wang Peian, vice-minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, said the two-child policy is showing “notable results”, with the fertility rate expected to rise over the next few years. Gmw.cn commented on Monday:The full liberalization of the family planning policy to allow all couples to have two children is for the benefit of the whole country, but it seems there is a general feeling that the policy needs to be accompanied by further welfare or benefits to encourage couples to have a second child, due to the cost of raising children.
Although high-income families have adequate resources for raising children, they are also in need of conditions for children to receive good-quality education.
Chinas future demographic dividend requires strengthening the quality of labor rather than merely increasing the size of the labor force. China is now competing on quality not quantity. And the quality of the work force depends on the quality of education they receive.
So, now the need is not only to encourage more couples to have a second child but also to ensure todays children are ready to be part of the higher quality labor force that will be required to compete in the future.Related StoriesSubsidy increase, formal education proposed to nurture ICH inheritorsQ&A: Should China increase the salaries of teachers in rural areas and provide them with further professional support so rural kids can receive a better education?Plan to boost profile of vocational education in ChinaMinister: no plan to extend compulsory educationCartoonsTree planting dayUS military spendingTHAADHappy Womens DayChina-ROK relationsTrade protectionismMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsShould bride prices be abolished?Can homeschooling replace public schools?ColumnistsPolitical whirlwind in the ROK shows its ties with Japan are shakyTime for a change to one-size-fits-all retirement policyForumFeatured ContributorsTalent development is key for innovationTransit agreements could be key to Belt & Road successChina Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersHumanity in the eyes of an orphanLooking for true meaning, rather than photo opsBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
