From "Quality Education" to "Sleep Management" and then to "Double Reduction", the relevant departments are gradually refining the education reform, seeking small cuts and creating big changes, among which "Sleep Management" is an important measure to reduce the burden of students and recover students' body and mind. Sleep Management refers to the process in which the government, various social organizations and the public, under the leadership of the Party Committee to promote the coordinated operation of the primary and secondary school students sleep system, regulate the behaviors of social members, and organize, coordinate, supervise and control the components of the sleep system and each link of sleep development. The initial paper, published in 2007 on the concept of “Sleep Management” put forth the [[original requirements]] which paved the road for the 2021 policies surrounding special sleep management policy. Subsequent national provinces and cities have also issued similar documents based upon the national policy. These policies address sleep concerns through education programs, non-profit organizations, and social conventions by detailing different management modes, content, implementation strategy, and policy interpretation.
