China plans to raise the threshold for teachers' academic backgrounds to improve the quality of education, according to a draft amendment released by the Ministry of Education on Monday.

Public feedback on the draft amendment of the Teacher's Law is being sought until Dec 20.

The draft says kindergarten teachers should at least obtain degrees from higher vocational schools, rather than the secondary vocational school requirement of the current law, which came into effect in 1994.

The draft would also raise academic requirements for primary school teachers from secondary vocational school degrees to bachelor's degrees.

For middle school teachers, the requirement would be raised from higher vocational school degrees to bachelor's degrees.

The academic requirement for teachers at higher education institutions would be raised to master's degrees from bachelor's degrees.

The amendment would also require county-level education authorities to arrange a rotation of teachers at compulsory education schools to ensure balanced educational development.
