We hope that with the joint efforts of the whole district, especially with the contributions from all the responsible inspectors, we can achieve the goal of passing the assessment with high quality on the first attempt.
Wang Zhe reported on the assessment of the national innovation district for the regular supervision from responsible inspectors at primary and secondary schools. Her report was based on the current situation, objectives and work plan.

Knowing that Nanshan District has already passed this assessment, she emphasized that Futian District shall strive to pass the assessment with high quality as soon as possible.
During the next free talk, the inspectors exchanged ideas about their feelings and knowledge of the supervision work as well as suggestions for their future work.
Huang Kongchen, Principal of the Futian Experimental School of Shenzhen's Educational Science Institute in the 20th area of responsibility, said that since conventional inspectors usually just go through the motions, emphasis should be placed on special subjects of the supervision work, in particular, to provide targeted supervision according to the specific conditions and hot educational issues in the area where the schools are. As the supervision work requires not only supervision but also learning, he also proposed to set up a learning-oriented organization to discover highlights and experience in the supervision work and then summarize, promote and share them.
Nie Junqing, Principal of Qiaoxiang Foreign Languages School in the third area of responsibility, said that this assessment was pressed for time with heavy tasks and higher requirements centred on innovation.

On site, the inspectors were engaged in heated discussions and expressed their views, providing valuable advices about creating the supervision culture, improving the management system, innovating the supervision content and strengthening the supervision promotion. You Weishuo fully recognized the speeches given by the inspectors and gave a positive response to the innovation topic. He emphasized that the key to this assessment of the national innovation district was innovation. The Educational Supervision Office of the District People’s Government is exploring the path of the innovation of the working system for education innovation, vigorously publicizing the supervision work, raising its status and further boosting its actual effect.
Wang Wei highly recognized the educational supervision work in Futian District, pointing out that the focus of the assessment of the national innovation district was on innovation and the education supervision salon itself was an innovation of working mode. In the current situation of Shenzhen's districts participating in this assessment, Futian District needs to identify its position, seize the focus and boost its advantages so as to ensure that it passes the assessment.
