TUESDAY WAS THE 35TH TEACHERS' DAY FOR CHINA. The authorities should pay special attention to teachers in rural areas and take measures to increase their salaries, comments China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang:

Teachers in rural areas deserve special attention because they live and work in difficult conditions compared with their urban counterparts.

According to surveys and investigations conducted by Xinhua News Agency, even in 2015 some of the rural primary schools didn't have electricity or tap water. Worse, teachers in rural areas usually get lower pay than their urban counterparts, as teachers' salaries are partly related to local financial conditions. Also, training opportunities for them are few and promotions rare.
