About This Document
This 2018 document summarizes the work of the village-based work team from Khotan county No. 3 primary school. It outlines successes and areas for improvement. The document focuses heavily on the importance of helping locals develop strong Mandarin language skills, increase ideological work for farmers, cooperate with employment services to ‘guide’ surplus labor to join seasonal labor, and encourage teachers to enter the households to gather more information. Poor families were to be made aware of their deficiencies, subjected to strengthened “motivational education,” and households considered to be poor because of “laziness” were sent to dedicated “education” activities.
