Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao Saturday called for changes in education bureaucracy, a problem that plagues China's education development.

"I hope that the administrative rankings of colleges will be removed," Wen said during an on-line chat with Internet users around the country and overseas at and

Wen said another way to boost education development is to have schools run by educationalists.

He defined "educationalists" to be those who love to teach and know how to teach, and those who have been teachers for their entire lives.

"If the head of a school is changing every two or three years, that school could never be excellent," said Wen.

Wen said China has made a mid- and long-term outline for education reform and development which gives priority to reducing academic workload of students, so that they can develop in an all-around way.
