All students in private schools will enjoy the same policy with students in public schools. The government will allocate 80 yuan subsidy for each pupil per semester, 115 yuan for middle school students.

Migrant workers' children can receive a fair education and enjoy the same treatments as urban children. Children of migrant workers can also apply for the nearest school and enjoy the free tuition, fees, textbooks and notebooks.

A staff of private school in Tibet expressed his support for this policy, he said: "Free tuition and fees is a win-win policy. It can solve the fees in arrears problem and reduce the burdens for both migrant workers and schools. "
