Chapter Summary

One important part of this reform Outline of China's National Plan for Medium and Long-Term Education Reform and Development (2010-2020) is to explore ways to enable migrant workers' children to take the College Entrance Exam in the city where their parents work and live, also known to the public as "Offsite Exam Taking". It not only directly reflects the legal right of migrant students to receive education, but also moves forward the education equity in China in general. The "Offsite Exam Taking" policy in Heilongjiang, Zhejiang and Jiangsu focuses on the school roll of the migrant children and puts limits on the job and place of residency of the migrant parents. Now the approaches to implement the "Offsite Exam Taking" are sought within the framework of the current College Entrance Exam, like relaxing the restrictions for signing up the exam.
