Equality of Education Opportunity
In recent years the problems which are causedby the inequality of education opportunity haveattracted the public's attention. For instance, thebackward teaching facilities anddilapidated schoolbuildings in rural areas are in sharp contrast tothose advanced facilities and well-equippedclassrooms in urban areas, students from poor families cannot go to universities because of thehigh tuition.
There are several factors which contribute to these problems. First, the distribution ofresources is unbalanced between rural and urban schools. Second, educational loans for poorstudents are far from enough. Third, the inequality in some schools' admission policies alsoturns many students away. The education inequality can result in many bad impacts. On onehand, it can affect people’s future employment. On the other hand，it is the root of manysocial problems.
To change this situation, I think, we should take the following measures. Firstly, thegovernment's spending on education should be increased and the allocation of public resourcesgives priority to rural and weak urban schools. Secondly, the implementation of thegovernment financial aid system for students should be accelerated. Thirdly, the governmentshould speed up education reforms to ensure everyone has equal access to schools.
