China Youth Online conducted a survey on measures to take in reviving morale at colleges. The survey results suggested the following:
71.3 percent – emphasize education on a human plane; encourage students to “challenge and question” and form individual personalities;
64.9 percent – need the whole society to respect education and creativity rather than merely promoting wealth and power;
55.3 percent – improve teachers’ skills and ability; standardize teachers’ skill training;
53.5 percent – apart from academics, college teachers need to pursue moral values and self-restraint;
51.3 percent – improve transparency to allow colleges to have more flexibility to grow;
37.6 percent – encourage more college professors to get involved in school management.
