Other Chinas- Poverty Alleviation Is a Mass Education Initiative

全国确定有14个特困连片区。网络数据显示2016年中国农村贫困人口为4335万,留守儿童906万。国家正在极力推动“精准扶贫”政策,力争在2020年让消除农村贫困。
China’s State Council designated 14 poverty clusters in China. Statistics from the internet resources show that the total population of poverty in rural China is 43.35 million and there are also 9.06 million left-behind children in rural villages, both of which figures have dropped dramatically from the previous years. The central government has been pushing the targeted poverty alleviation work in around China and officials from government are assigned to stay in the specific villages to enforce the poverty alleviation work.

中国目前的“精准扶贫”运动让人联想起新中国成立时开始的“扫盲运动”(扫除文盲):1949年,全国5.5亿人口中80%是文盲,农村的文盲率更高达95%以上,1949年到1964年的十几年中,先后有近一亿中国人摘掉了文盲的帽子。

The targeted poverty alleviation movement in China easily reminds people of the illiteracy eradication movement in China started from the foundation of People’s Republic of China in 1949, when 80% Chinese population (550 million ) and 95% the rural population were illiterate and after the persistent work of the illiteracy eradication 100 million people became literate in the year of 1964.

国家当前的扶贫工作与其说是产业的发展,还不如说是一场新的“农村群众教育”:当前农民的发展思想真正转移到“绿色、生态”发展的路上、新一代农民接受到更加完善和更高水平的教育之后,永久脱离贫困就得到了实现,因为农村就真正做到了“可持续发展“–可持续就意味着能够未来也是远离贫困的。
It seems that the current targeted poverty alleviation movement in rural China is more mass education of sustainable development on the farmers than developing certain industries themselves. When the farmers are educated and led to take the sustainable development and the young generations are more highly educated, the development will sustain to the future and then the poverty will stay away from the rural communities.
