Categories: China Legal Trends

On 23 Oct. 2021, the Family Education Promotion Law of the People’s Republic of China (hereinafter “the Family Education Promotion Law”,中华人民共和国家庭教育促进法) was adopted by the Standing Committee of the Thirteenth National People’s Congress, which will come into effect from 1 Jan. 2022.

With a total of 55 articles in six chapters, the Family Education Promotion Law stipulates family responsibility, state support, social cooperation and legal liability to promote family education.

The law stipulates that parents or other guardians of minors shall assume primary responsibility for the implementation of family education for minors.

It attempts to change the current educational model in China, that is, “the family is only an extension of the classroom and parents are only assistants to the school teachers.”
