Many countries, such as France, Japan and the US, celebrate both their own reading festivals and the World Reading Day, and that China should follow the trend, especially when its population reads far less than other countries. Reading plays a critical role in shaping of national literacy1 and improving people's cultivation2.
The majority of Chinese middle school students are suffering from lack of sleep every day, and this could hurt their health. To get their homework done, many students cannot go to bed until 11 pm or even later. And they have to get up around 5:30 am to ensure they get to school before 7 am. Under pressure from their parents, teachers or even themselves, many students sacrifice their sleep for good performances on tests. I suggest schools start classes after 7:30 am, and nail down a deadline for when students must be dismissed4.
