China needs more input in education

Like many parents, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde took their kids to schools on the first day of the new semester in Belgium. The photos of them doing so I posted on my social media accounts in China attracted a lot of comments. Many of them said unselfish parental love and care for children is deeply rooted in their hearts of every parent; while some focused on the long history of the school St. John Berchmans College in Brussels, which several members of Belgium's royal family have attended and which can trace its history back to 1604.

For my part, I think that the royal couple was delivering a strong message that education is essential for the future success of every Belgian kid, and family participation in their education is vital.

Belgium is among the best of the developed countries when it comes to education. It offers 12 years of compulsory education for its citizens, and financial aid for children from poor families can easily be obtained for higher education. With a lot of facilities and training centers, a lifelong learning network has been established.
