He said that in recent years, the vast number of teachers and educators in the city have conscientiously implemented the Party's educational policy and have made great contributions to the country's prosperity, national rejuvenation and regional development by making painstaking efforts and silent contributions to teaching and educating people. Especially after the "July 22" novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, teachers and educators volunteered and rushed to the front line, becoming an important force in the city's campus prevention and control, community prevention and control, medical treatment and other fronts.
Tan Zuojun pointed out that Dalian is currently in a critical period when it is moving from an industrial city in the northeast region to an internationally influential industrial science and technology city that is livable and integrated. Its thirst for knowledge and talents is unprecedented, and its demand for good education and excellent teachers is unprecedented. It is hoped that teachers and educators will follow General Secretary Xi Jinping's important statement on education and strive to be promising teachers who "educate people for the Party and the country". We will unswervingly take the cultivation of socialist builders and successors as our fundamental task and strive to be a model teacher for moral cultivation and world-class behavior. Follow up and learn new knowledge in time, enhance new skills, and strive to be a knowledgeable teacher who is familiar with ancient and modern times and has excellent professional skills. Closely focusing on "teaching well", "learning well" and "managing well", we will actively integrate into the reform practice of the educational system and mechanism, striving to be an innovative teacher who practices modern educational concepts and helps the high-quality development of education.
Tan Zuojun stressed that Party committees at all levels should strengthen the Party's leadership in education, take strengthening the construction of teachers as the most important basic work for the development of education, and vigorously create a social atmosphere of respecting teachers and valuing education. Education departments at all levels should conscientiously perform their duties of service management, safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of teachers, and care for teachers' lives. Party organizations at all levels and types of schools should regard Party building as an important work in running schools and running schools, and fully implement the Party's educational policy in all aspects of school work. We should widely publicize the advanced deeds of teaching and educating people, and form a good fashion in the whole society that attaches importance to education, cares about education and supports education.
When presiding over the meeting, Chen Shaowang stressed that the whole city should always attach great importance to the work of teachers, take the overall strengthening of the construction of teachers as a fundamental livelihood project, find out the breakthrough point and focus point, and earnestly grasp the reality. We should continuously improve the status and treatment of teachers, improve the incentive mechanism for the treatment guarantee and income distribution of primary and secondary school teachers, care about the life and development of teachers, carry forward the social fashion of respecting teachers and valuing teaching, and let teachers have a sense of happiness in their posts, a sense of accomplishment in their careers and a sense of honor in society. I hope that teachers in the city will always keep in mind their glorious mission. Adhere to the unity of teaching and educating people, Adhere to the unity of words and deeds, adhere to the unity of asking questions with great concentration and paying attention to the society, adhere to the unity of academic freedom and academic norms, and strive to be an excellent teacher with ideals and beliefs, moral sentiments, solid knowledge and benevolence, who can be a guide for students to temper their character, learn knowledge, innovate their thinking and contribute to the motherland.
