Yuan Guiren says government spending on education was more than 3 percent of the nation’s GDP in 2010, and will rise to 4% next year. Yuan says the education ministry will tackle a number of issues facing students. He says the government will set up more public kindergartens and offer support to civilian-run kindergartens.

A supervision system will be established to ease the burden of lessons and homework on students. To try and ease the pressure on parents of trying to get their children into "good schools", he wants to narrow the education standards between different schools.
