The Chinese government has been vigorously promoting compulsory education to ensure that every child has the opportunity to receive education. Since the Compulsory Education law came into effect in 1986, through unremitting efforts, the goal of implementing compulsory education nationwide has been achieved. Nowadays, in China, children start primary school at the age of six and receive nine years of compulsory education from primary school to junior high school. Since the autumn semester of 2008, students in the compulsory education stage have been exempted from paying tuition fees. With the implementation of a series of education reform measures, the quality of compulsory education in China has also been significantly improved.
