[The number of primary school students in Northeast China has decreased significantly, and the number of students in the three cities of "Shen Dachang" has increased] Statistics show that in 2013, the number of students in ordinary primary schools in my country was 93.605 million. In 2019, this figure was 105.612 million, an increase of 12.007 million in 6 years. People, an increase of 12.83%. However, in the Northeast region, since 2013, the data of primary school students in Liaoning, Jilin and Heilongjiang have all decreased. The number of reductions was 93,000, 176,300 and 261,000 respectively. The three provinces have decreased by 530,300 in total. This is a decrease of 10.7% compared to 2013.
Among the 31 cities mentioned above, only Shenyang, Dalian and Changchun have seen an increase in the number of primary school students. Among them, although the increase in Dalian has reached 62,000, because Dalian is the compulsory education stage, if it is evenly distributed to the primary school stage, the increase may be between 40,000 and 50,000. In contrast, Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning Province, has increased 59,000 primary school students in the past six years, the city with the largest increase in the entire Northeast. As the central city of the region and the only megacity in the Northeast, Shenyang has vigorously relaxed the threshold for settlement in recent years to attract talents.
At the beginning of April this year, Shenyang City issued 7 supplementary opinions on the complete abolition of restrictions on the settlement of talents and further liberalization of the settlement policy, truly realizing the "zero threshold" for talent settlement. According to local statistics, from April 3, 2020 to June 8 at 17:00, Shenyang City welcomed 22,457 "new citizens" through the "New Deal for Settlement", of which the majority were purchasers of houses, third-parties, and introduction of talents. This shows the attraction of Shenyang in the Northeast.
