Chinese teachers have to pass the same exams as their students

Here is something which wouldn't hurt for many western schools to do as well:

More than 8000 high school teachers had to take part in an end of term exam in Shenyang, China. Not as supervisors, but as examinees. The teachers are required to take the exams to test their knowledge on the courses they taught and if they do not score high enough they won't receive rewards and bonuses in the future.
