The State Council unveiled (May 8, 2011) details of a five-year development plan. Over this period the government plans to offer the country's 83 million disabled citizens 12 years of free education, bolster public services, and offer more benefits to improve their quality of life.

Currently, the government is making efforts to ensure all students have nine years of free education - six years of primary school and three years of junior high.
