China schools to give classes in Xi Thought

Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era will be incorporated into China’s textbooks for students at all levels, a new guideline said on August 24.

Issued by the National Textbook Committee, the guideline said the inclusion of the Thought into textbooks is of great significance in guiding students’ confidence in the path, theory, system and culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics, listening to the Communist Party of China’s (CPC) call and following its lead and developing “correct views” of life, values and the world.

The Thought should be included in basic, vocational and higher education; national, local and school textbooks; philosophic, social science and natural science subjects; as well as moral education, academic education and social practice education, the guideline said.

Primary schools should foster love and “right understanding” for the CPC, country and socialism in students, through story-telling and descriptive language, it said.

Middle schools should help students develop basic political judgment and views, undergraduate students should form theoretical thinking and develop conviction in and commitment to the socialist cause and postgraduate students should focus on deep exploration of the Thought and develop the abilities to promote, explain and conduct research on the Thought, the guideline added.
