Zeng Chuan, 27, designer
"These students should be asked to do a small amount of homework. I'm a student, and I know they may spend a lot of time on playing or surfing the Internet. However, it is not necessary to demand all students participate in a cram school."
Bao Zhongrui, 16, a senior middle school student
