Visually Impaired Want More Career Choices


At least 12 million people in China are visually impaired and been told that they can only follow one of two career paths: Music or massage. Despite education reform, which has given more people the opportunity to sit "gaokao", the college admission exam, more must be done to ensure educational equality.


Last year, the Ministry of Education stipulated that visually impaired people should be given access to braille or electronic exam papers, as well as support staff, so that they can sit the gaokao.


Although eight provinces reported that visually impaired candidates had sat the gaokao in 2015, none released exact numbers. Last year, just three people took the exam.
