Xi Jinping's ideology to be 'embedded into the brains' of Chinas children
News ImageXi Jinping is expected to cement his emergence as Chinas strongest leader since Mao Tze-tung at the Communist Party congress on Tuesday, when his ideology enters the constitution before it becomes embedded into the brains of the countrys children. The Chinese president will be elevated to the same level as Mao and Deng Xiaoping if, as expected, Xi Jinping Thought is enshrined into the party constitution on the final day of the political gathering. And Beijing appears to be wasting no time in ensuring that Mr Xis message is firmly indoctrinated into the minds of Chinese school children. Chinas education chief signaled the dogma would immediately enter the national curriculum after the congress, with teachers receiving training and textbooks being updated. (It will) go into textbooks, into classes, and into the brains (of pupils), Education Minister Chen Baosheng said, on the sidelines of the congress, according to Hong Kongs South China Morning Post. The text of Mr Xis ideology will be included in political ideology courses that all children are required to take. We will design specific teaching methods that combine texts ... of various grades and subjects, Mr Chen added. Beijing has previously rolled out campaigns to introduce more Communist dogma into Chinese schools and colleges. The move, which has been seen as part of a broader ideological tightening in academic life, is helping to further strengthen Mr Xis grip on power in China. The president is set to be honoured with his own ideology, putting him on a par with Mao Zedong Credit: AFP The Chinese president will enter a select club of just Mao and Deng - who ruled China until 1989 when the constitution is amended to include an ideology bearing his name. It would cap a party congress which has seen Mr Xi attempt to position China and himself at the centre of an alternative new world order. The Chinese president opened the event last Wednesday hailing a new era in which China was ready to take centre stage. China is standing tall and firm in the east, he said, as he offered a new choice for the world. For decades China has maintained a low profile in world affairs, concentrating instead on developing its domestic economy, and quietly seeking to bide its time, as Deng once said. Many nations are worried over the strategic ambitions of a more assertive Beijing. China is embroiled in a series of territorial disputes with its neighbours including Asian rivals India and Japan. It has also caused alarm in disputed waters in the South China Sea, where it is fortifying reefs and partially-submerged land formations with military installations. Beijing has also caused alarm in Australia, where it is seeking to expand its influence through its large Chinese student population and business community, and across Europe where it is perceived to engage in unfair trade practices.
