Implementation standard for overseas research and learning travel of primary and secondary school students is issued: it is not suitable to exceed 2 countries at a time

According to the regulations issued on the 30th, the proportion of education and teaching content and study duration of overseas research and study travel is generally no less than half of the total overseas travel plans. Each activity should not be arranged in more than two countries, and each country should not visit more than four cities.

China Association for international exchange of Education issued four group standards in Beijing on the same day, and launched the “certification of educational service for primary and secondary school students’ overseas research and study travel agencies” and “education service certification of primary and secondary school students’ research and practice education base”.

it is stipulated that the travel time for overseas research and study should not exceed 3 weeks for primary school students and 6 weeks for middle school students. The course features can choose or include environmental protection, science and technology, humanities, nature, history, literature, art, sports and other topics.

in addition, it is stipulated that the overseas research and study travel team shall be equipped with at least one overseas research and learning leader. The proportion of overseas research team leaders, teachers and students should not be less than 1:10 for primary school students, 1:15 for junior high school students and 1:20 for senior high school students.

Xie Shuangyu, a professor at Central China Normal University, who participated in the compilation of the standards, said that the average participation rate of China’s research travel schools was 33%, and the highest rate was 66% in Shanghai. At present, there are some problems in the research travel, such as the weak pertinence of curriculum design, the lack of outstanding characteristics of the learning stage, and the disunity of the curriculum evaluation system. The drafting of the code draws lessons from the advanced experience of Britain, Japan, the United States and other places. Focus
