Comments on New Education Initiative

Professor Zhu visits over 100 schools every year and devotes a large amount of time and energy to transforming education in China from a pedantic and old-fashioned Confucian education mode, which is rigid and only stresses memorization, into a comprehensive and flexible mode in order to adapt to the changing world at present. ——Alan Macfarlane, Professor of Social Anthropology, Cambridge University,Academician of British Academy and Academia Europaea

The New Education Initiative is conducting education innovation and can solve the problems that we are faced with in the 21th century.
——Manabu Sato, Former Professor of Education Department, University of Tokyo, Japan

The New Education Initiative has promoted the research of Chinese education. It is like a catfish that will certainly stir up the Chinese education!
——Tao Xiping, member of China National Education Advisory Committee and National General Advisor of Education

With reading at its core and its starting point, Zhu Yongxin and his New Education Initiative inspires and unites the majority of educators and parents, and profoundly affects the education reform and development of China, the largest developing country in the world. It greatly promotes the transformation of China's education, from a test-oriented education to one that focuses on personal growth. Due to the diversity of China's development, the success of the New Education Initiative also provides a duplicable reference for other countries of the world, especially the vast number of developing countries and regions, to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor, to solve the problems of education, and to achieve great-leap forward developments and common development.
--Zhang Mingzhou, Chairman of the International Board On Books for Young People (IBBY)

Professor Zhu Yongxin is my idol in the field of education and the mentor of my life. His "New Education" principles have changed me and other teachers, and it has also changed many educational institutions that I worked for and students that I taught, so that we can rely on ideals and passions, and on pursuit of education to start the actual action of "New Education Initiative".
---- Jiang Yaying, Principal of Jiangsu Province, Principal of Qingying Foreign Language School

I learned about New Education Initiative at the age of 50. It not only eliminated my job burnout, it made me passionate about reading more, and being more rational and effective with my readings. What's more important is that I can soberly pursue the meaning of life. I am 62 years old this year, and I have become a trainer for New Education Initiative. Looking at young teachers who have changed as a result of New Education Initiative, I also know that I cannot slow down.
——Guo Mingxiao, teacher of Renmin Road Primary School, Yibin City, Sichuan Province

When she made achievements in education in the past, she was just happy, sometimes tired, but never had the real sense of happiness until she met New Education Initiative.
—Wang Lina, Primary School Teacher, Workers Village, Macun District, Jiaozuo City

How to be a better parent? I also followed the New Education Initiative through a process of learning and being changed for the better. Sometimes it feels that the essence of the New Education Initiative not only penetrates into every cell of the students, but also affects and changes every parent through each student. From students to parents, the interest in reading is like a fire of stars that is ignited by the teacher unconsciously.
