National People's Congress deputy Wang Xiaomei, who is a primary teacher from southwest China’s Sichuan Province, recently proposed that officials should better standardize lessons on laws and regulations.

Wang was elected for the first time to be a deputy to this year’s “Two Sessions” meetings. She has worked as a teacher for 33 years in her hometown in the Meishan city of Sichuan.

Having been a teacher for many years, Wang has witnessed the improvement of compulsory education from its popularization to all-round upgrades.

She has focus on important issues such as juveniles’ rights protection and crime prevention.

Speaking at a provincial delegation meeting on March 10, Wang said the government should strengthen the guardianship responsibilities of parents in the families with difficulties, of so-called “left-behind” children, and of migrant families to promote the legalization of family guardianship duties.

She also said that officials should introduce the normalization of legal education in schools, and achieve equal emphasis on education and punishment in prevention and punishment of juvenile delinquency.

The government should also establish a judicial network for the prevention and correction of juvenile delinquency.

She suggested linking the Communist Youth League, the committee focusing on the protection of minors, civil affairs departments and news media organizations to work together to protect the rights and interests of minors and prevent crime.
