The Shanghai school district has made an important commitment to make its classrooms more efficient and less prone to leaks.
The district says the goal is to make it easier for students to learn and do better.
It is the first school district in China to make the pledge.
“We want to make sure that our students are learning and doing well,” Shanghai Education Secretary Wang Jiaqiang told reporters Monday at the school.
“There is a lot of pressure to get good results, to improve.
We must improve the quality of our schools.”
The district also says it will provide free laptops for students and will increase the number of free Wi-Fi connections in its classrooms.
Schools across China have been using laptops to stream video from their computers, but not so much in classrooms.
In Shanghai, the district says that laptops will be available at all of its schools.
It will also give students a laptop computer, so they can connect to the Internet from home.
Shanghai is home to China’s top five technology companies and the Shanghai School of Medicine and Dentistry.
It also has one of the largest Chinese universities, and it has been the subject of several high-profile corruption scandals.
