The Ministry of Education and education departments at all levels are seeking to improve the attraction of teaching in rural areas as an occupation.

Xu Tao, director in charge of teachers' affairs with the Ministry of Education, said the ministry had made efforts to raise the income of primary and middle school teachers, especially those in rural areas.

Xu said the ministries of education and finance would soon issue a notice to support local governments in granting allowances to rural teachers, especially those working in impoverished areas.
