BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- China is set to encourage kindergartens, primary and secondary schools to recruit more college graduates as teachers, according to a circular jointly issued by multiple departments, including the Ministry of Education.
More than 400,000 graduates will be recruited as K-12 teachers, and around 105,000 graduates will teach in primary and junior middle schools in impoverished rural areas this year.
College graduates can be employed as teachers before attending an examination to obtain a teacher's certificate, said the circular.
Private kindergartens and schools are also encouraged to recruit graduates, with incentives including tax cuts and subsidies, the circular added. Enditem
