The second batch of Huangpu's education groups received their plaques on Jan 13, as well as several newly added members of the district's first batch of education groups.
A total of five new groups were set up, increasing the overall number in Huangpu to 10, as the first five were established in December 2018. They cover 41 local schools and 88 percent of the communities, allowing more students to have access to quality and balanced education resources.
The five new groups were Huangpu vocational education group, Guangzhou Science City education group, Guangzhou Development District (GDD) middle school education group, Huangpu Changzhou education group, and Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City education group.
This batch of education groups have made several breakthroughs as rather than focusing on traditional compulsory education, they have focused on vocational education.
Huangpu vocational education group, led by Guangzhou Huangpu Vocational Technical School, will carry out cooperation between schools and companies to promote the integration of education and production.
Huangpu has been devoting efforts in setting up or introducing educational institutions to areas with new population growth.
"We will also introduce suitable schools to settle down in Guangzhou International Bio Island according to the local population growth," said Huang Xiaofeng, deputy director of the GDD administrative committee.
