BEIJING — Some 88 percent of Chinese elementary and secondary schools have an internet connection, according to the Ministry of Education.

There are 12 computers for every 100 elementary and secondary school students. The number of real-name online learning spaces exceeds 63 million, said the ministry.

According to the third plenary session of the 18th Communist Party of China Central Committee held in 2013, more students must enjoy quality education resources via the internet, narrowing the gap between different schools in different areas.

More than 9.4 million teachers of elementary and secondary schools have received appropriate training, said the ministry.
