The CPC and society should promote the social norms of respecting teachers and valuing education and enhance the political, social, and professional status of teachers so that they can enjoy their due social prestige and make greater contributions to the cause of the Party and the people by imparting knowledge and educating people.
Party committees and governments should recognize the crucial role of teaching from a strategic point. The authorities should offer support to teachers, raise their pay, care for their health and protect their interests, so as to make teaching the most respected job in the country.
