Chinese schoolchildren will be taught the basics of communism through the app: An online platform has been created for primary and secondary school students in China to study new socialist thought.
What is it for?
The Ministry of Education and the National Working Committee of the Young Pioneers of China have created an application and website, rmrbsn.cn, to enable students to better understand communism. This should strengthen their faith in the party and inspire them to become reliable followers.
The platform shows illustrations and explains the “Chinese dream” in articles, talks about Chinese ethnic groups and the Silk Road. Teachers and educational bureaus can enter the site or the application to track students’ reading activity.
Mu Sicking, a student at Tsinghua University High School in Beijing, said that “the articles are short and easy to understand.” She also noted that she is most interested in classics like texts about ancient virtues, because “they are informative and instructive.”
Testing services will last a year, during which time the creators will try to maximize their popularity among children and adolescents in China.
