BEIJING, May 23 (Xinhua) -- Here are the highlights of education news in China from the past week:

-- Chinese schools asked to improve physical education as students return

China's Ministry of Education (MOE) has issued guidelines on improving physical education as students return to schools across the country.

After a long period of studying at home, students now have poorer physical health conditions and are eager for exercise, said the ministry, asking schools to adjust their teaching plans accordingly and pay particular attention to physical education.

-- China ups efforts on balanced development of compulsory education

China has stepped up efforts on education supervision and support to ensure the balanced development of compulsory education around the country, said an official with the MOE at a press conference Tuesday.

A total of seven provincial-level regions and 69 county-level areas in the country passed a national evaluation on the balanced development of compulsory education in 2019, said Tian Zuyin, chief of the MOE education inspection department, adding that so far 23 provincial-level regions and over 95 percent of the county-level areas in China have passed the evaluation.

-- Financial aid to students in China up 4 percent in 2019

Financial aid allocated to students in 2019 to China's various education institutions, from kindergartens to universities, amounted to 212.6 billion yuan (about 30 billion U.S. dollars), up 4.07 percent year-on-year, the MOE said on Thursday.

This marked growth for a 13th consecutive year, according to the ministry. Enditem
