China to Strengthen Safety Education to Students

China's Ministry of Education on Sunday released a guideline, requiring all primary and middle schools to strengthen students' safety education.

The guideline outlines requirements of on-campus safety education that includes self-protection against physical injuries, public health incidents and natural disasters, but did not elaborate measures to be taken.

It also highlights self-protection from sexual harassment, prevention of HIV/AIDS and the resistance of pornographic and subversive online information.

Through on-campus training, the education aims at raising safety awareness and self-protection abilities of Chinese teenagers

China reported a series of hepatitis A outbreaks in primary and middle schools last year, along with tragic accidents in which students got killed or injured.

Six students in east China's Jiangxi Province were trampled to death and 39 injured last November when hundreds of students at the school in Duchang County swarmed out of evening classes and onto the stairway.

Also in November, eight primary school students were killed and nine more seriously injured when the bus carrying them fell off a six-meter-high bridge in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.
