88% of Chinese schools connected to internet: Report

About 88% of Chinese elementary and secondary schools have an connection, China's Ministry of Education said today.

There are 12 computers for every 100 elementary and secondary school students. The number of real-name online learning spaces exceeds 63 million, state-run Xinhua news reported, citing a statement issued by the ministry.


The ruling Communist Party of China had directed in 2013 that more students must enjoy quality education resources via the internet, narrowing the gap between different schools in different areas, the ministry said.

Over 9.4 million teachers of elementary and secondary schools have received appropriate training, it said.
