Shenzhen plans to expand free school education
Shenzhen, a metropolis of 12 million people, is considering a bill to expand free schooling from nine to 12 years starting in 2025, as the South China Morning Post reports. The high-tech hub would thus be one of the first cities in China to also offer an additional year of middle school free of charge, as well as the entire high school. Currently, China's education system is free and compulsory from first to ninth grade.
