The policy to ease the burden of excessive homework and off-campus tutoring for students undergoing compulsory education has been implemented for one year now and many feel it's time to take stock of the situation.

The question is being asked what has been the effect of the policy and what changes have happened to the studies and lives of the kids? Let's take a look during the summer break in Longwan district – one of the four urban precincts of Wenzhou city in East China's Zhejiang province.
