"Minors" = under 18 years old?
If yes, then wow. This is the most radical change that will directly affect the young.

Lets see how it goes. If it is successful, the West might (eventually) adopt it as well
@Overbom bro I support it, with online schooling due to the pandemic, my teenage son is playing a lot of internet games with his friend and is a nuances to our neighbor with his constant shouting and cursing...LOL its embarrassing especially if you lived in a Condo unit. I had to lock the main door so as not to disturb the neighbors and had to place his console unit next to mine to check on him.

Yes I agree. Too much internet gaming is bad for the mental health of the kids.

By the way it seems that only online Multiplayer games are going to be affected by this new regulation. Offline Singleplayer games should be ok

@Overbom bro I agree on a certain point, due to the rampaging Delta variant here in the Philippine gaming help a little in alleviating boredom and help in socializing even in the virtual world. My son is 17 years old and is not vaccinated, the gov't only allow Pfizer for teenager which I oppose cause I want Sinovac instead. So a little less strict and understanding is required but boy he had me surprise hearing those colorful inexplicable curses and demand an explanation where he learned those words...LOL

China has been cracking down on many things this year.
- Tech monopolies
- US listings
- Private tutoring
- Online gaming
- Housing
- Zombie companies
I really look forward to the 2021 and 2022 growth figures.
Chinese leadership took a calculated decision with all these stuff. The 2021 projected GDP growth rate was very good and they had set a "low" GDP target growth rate in order to create a buffer.

This buffer will now be used by these regulations and the recent reemergence of the Detla variant in China (which has been eliminated now)

I reckon that there is still plenty of economic space if China wants to continue its regulation spree this year

China is genociding written exams for 1st and 2nd graders....aarrrr!!!!!

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

Students in first and second grade should have no written exams while students in other grades at primary schools should only have one final exam for every semester, the Ministry of Education said on Monday.

In a new notice aimed at reducing the excessive academic workload of primary and middle school students, the ministry said middle schools are allowed to organize one test at the middle of the semester and one at the end of the semester.

Some schools have organized too many tests that are too difficult. As a result, students have to frequently study hard, leading to exam-oriented education and a heavy academic burden, the ministry said, adding that the practice has harmed the students' psychological and physical health and must be rectified.

Local education authorities should not organize regional or interscholastic exams, and schools and classes should not organize weekly or monthly tests, the notice said.

In addition, schools should strictly regulate the content of their final exams and make sure the difficulty does not exceed the national syllabus. The exam questions should focus on basic knowledge and skills, and the number of questions focusing on rote memory should be reduced, the notice said.

Moreover, the exam results should be divided into four to five grades, without giving specific scores, the notice added. Parents and students should be notified of the results in appropriate ways, and the results should not be ranked or published. The schools should not use test scores to label students or to determine which class to assign them or where they should sit in class.

I also want 6 annd 7 year old kids who are not even allowed to walk unsupervised, to take strict exams every month ...

Sensible decision by Chinese Gov
