Among other things, this Notice directs localities to take measures to stop the tendency of students to drop out of primary and secondary schools; to carry out propaganda on the Chinese Compulsory Education Law before school begins; and to organize personnel to re-educate students who have dropped out of school or who, even though of school age, have not attended school, as well as their parents, urging them to resume or start school education. The Notice also calls on education departments to cooperate with departments in charge of labor, agriculture, rural enterprise management, and industrial and commercial administration in inhibiting the illegal practice of hiring children under the age of 16.
