The Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party and the State Council jointly held a National Education Working Conference on July 13 and 14. Hu Jintao, the nation’s paramount leader, vowed to implement education modernization and a China with super powers in human resources by 2020.
“Education must adhere to the party’s leadership,” said Hu. “The fundamental purpose of education is to develop morally, intellectually, physically, and aesthetically-developed Socialist builders and successors. We must fully implement the party’s education policy and make the facilitation of healthy growth of students the starting point and ending point in all school work.”
