Ni Minjing, Member of the National Committee of CPPCC and Curator of Shanghai Science & Technology Museum, Gave Opinions on the Early Cultivation of Top Innovative Talents


The second meeting of the 14th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) opened on the afternoon of March 4 at the Great Hall of the People. More than 2,000 members of the National Committee of CPPCC closely followed the decisions and arrangements of the CPC Central Committee, kept in mind their political responsibilities, actively presented their advice on government affairs, and strove to reach consensus to jointly contribute to glorious Chinese modernization. Ni Minjing, a member of the National Committee of CPPCC and curator of Shanghai Science & Technology Museum, attended the meeting as a member of the education sector and submitted four proposals including "Early Cultivation of Top Innovative Talents".

The education system attaches great importance to the selection and training of top innovative talents. Many colleges and universities have followed the paths of Tsinghua University's "Qiu Class" and "Qian Class", try to enroll top-notch students in senior or even junior high schools, and open youth classes. Even some elementary education schools are following suit by opening up top-notch innovation classes. If this trend keeps expanding, it will have a great impact on education and teaching at the basic education stage, cause further anxiety among teachers, students and parents, and impose a great negative impact on the cultivation of future talents.

To this end, Ni Minjing suggests that we focus on building a scientific education system with Chinese characteristics, find Chinese breakthroughs in ideological methods and practical methods, and provide cultural soil for the vigorous vitality of the scientific spirit from the perspective of inheritance and reshaping of traditional culture. Science education requires diversified actions. It is necessary to strengthen the coordination of science education inside and outside schools to provide more space and opportunities for young people. At the same time, it is also necessary to break the myth of scientists and resume rationality to science.

In recent years, many cultural museums and science and technology venues in China have become very popular. Tickets for winter and summer vacations, holidays and weekends are often faced with flash sales. These free and low-price tickets are originally meant to benefit the general public, but now they have become a tool for scalpers to make money. The ticket scalping has worsened the situation where it is very hard for the citizens to obtain tickets.

In response to this situation, Ni Minjing suggests references to the train ticket management regulations to limit the price of tickets for agency purchases; at the same time, authorities should be involved to rectify the ticket market, and stipulate that third-party network platforms are prohibited from publishing agency auction and flash sale service information. Severe penalties should be imposed on the platform with violation of the regulation; in response to conduct of purchasing agencies using other people's ID information for large-scale ticket purchase and refunds, which causes a shortage of ticket sources, after verification by the public security department, the relevant persons or platforms should be deemed to constitute a crime in compliance with the provisions of the Criminal Law and be cracked down.

In addition, Ni Minjing also submitted proposals such as “Further Strengthening the Management of Automatic Renewal of APPs” and “Launching Relevant Standards and Policies for the Application of Artificial Bear Bile to the Earliest Possibility”.
