Ministry of Education: Politics, Chinese and History Classes in Primary and Secondary Schools Shall Include the Study of (Communist) Party History

On August 24th, the Ministry of Education held the first press conference of the 2021 Education Golden Autumn Series to introduce the curriculum materials for the overall planning of major themes in education. The Ministry of Education issued the “Guide to Including the Revolutionary Tradition in the Curriculum Materials of the Primary and Secondary Schools.” The guide affirmed that classes in primary and secondary schools should include the contents of the revolutionary tradition and the history of the (Communist) Party. The guide clearly requires that the three major subjects of Politics, Chinese Language, and History as focus subjects shall include education about China’s revolutionary tradition and selectively integrate the content in Art classes (for example, music and the fine arts.), and organically consolidate the education into other subjects, achieving full coverage.”
