Main Opnions

Lazy thinking includes two major directions of reform resistance: one is to form a set of old education concepts and education systems in the era of planned economy and class struggle for many years, which is different from the economic field. This set of things has never been Touched, the economic field has been completely updated, and the software and hardware in the education field have not been upgraded. It is still the 1950 version, so the inertia is particularly large.

Second, in addition to the obstacles to the formation of institutional ideas, there is one more now. The problem also exists in medical reform, that is, a new special interest group has appeared. This situation did not exist at the time of the reform in 1978. At that time, everyone had been flattened by the Cultural Revolution for ten years. Everyone was on the same starting line, and both were empty-handed. Today is different. In the past 30 years, a strong government has been created, its own special interests have been formed, and some related interest groups have been formed. For example, in key schools, they are unwilling to reform, and reform will hurt their interests. This is a very realistic resistance and we need to overcome our reform.
