The move aims to gradually narrow the rural-urban and regional gap in the education sector by using information technology, according to the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee's decision on major issues concerning comprehensively deepening reforms, released on Friday.

The decision was approved at the close of the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee on Tuesday.

China will balance the allocation of resources in urban and rural areas and build standardized public schools.

Educational authorities will be told to no longer classify schools as key or non-key institutions, which enjoy imbalanced resources. Key classes will no longer be allowed.

Vocational education will be further established, according to the document.

Skilled and talented workers will be better developed, and reforms in pre-school, special and further education will be promoted.

There will also be changes to the college examination system, the document said.

China will also examine a multi-evaluation system so schools do not just enrol students based on test performance, the document added.
