Future of Children's Schooling Addressed


To promote international awareness of the education of children and their ongoing development in the post-pandemic era, a forum on children's development was held on Thursday and Friday, which also marked World Children's Day on Nov 20.


Held by China Soong Ching Ling Foundation and the China Welfare Institute, the two-day forum has gathered more than 100 teachers, scholars and veteran educators from home and abroad to discuss the current situation and future development of preschool education in China, Finland, Sweden and the United Kingdom, among other countries.


Their topics also cover the role of physical education in children's growth, how to establish a support system for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and what challenges will be faced in a post-COVID-19 world.


At the event, Wang Jiarui, chairman of the Foundation and the Institute, pointed out that around 47 million Chinese children had to take online classes when the pandemic interrupted the normal operations of the country's kindergartens. However, long stretches of screen time are harmful to children's eyes.


"We still have to explore how we can ensure a sustainable way of educating children that meets the 'new normal' due to the pandemic," he says.
