Skip to comments.China says its colleges must champion core socialist values

Chinas leadership has issued guidelines requiring universities to strengthen ideological controls in classrooms and telling professors to champion Marxism, traditional culture and socialist core values.
The orders come as President Xi Jinping tightens his grip on political power and cracks down on the encroachment of supposed Western values such as press freedom and civil society groups. [ ]
Willy Lam, a political analyst at Chinese University in Hong Kong, said other professors were reporting tighter controls, including government monitors filing covert reports on classroom lectures. Control over professors has significantly tightened since Xi took power in late 2012, Lam said.
For intellectuals, this is a disturbing phenomenon. Its a return to Maoist values, he said.

They forgot to add “or else”.
And never mention who they all work for, international banking.
These sort of campaigns reflect power struggles within the party.
Sounds like they are implementing a Common Core curriculum.
And in a totally unrelated story: China announces a plan to send all Chinese citizens to Ivy League schools in the US.
In an unrelated story, the Vatican has ( for at least 40 or 50 years) told Roman Catholic colleges to reflect approved Christian values. Watch Georgetown and Notre Dame to see just how far such directives get -—
Send your students to the US - colleges here are already doing that since the 60’s!
This is now the largest export economy on Earth.
A billion people. Yet they cannot vote to change their leadership, they do not allow immigration, and we continue to send ever-more American jobs there.
They should send their professors to any American college to learn how to do it right.
So their colleges and ours teach the same stuff.
Try as they might, the WILL NEVER get their colleges as socialist as the faculties of US colleges.
...but they are welcome to give it their best.
Here we are, American taxpayers financing the Maoist and core Socialist religion just fine at nearly all our schools.
You have to wonder how Progressive solidarity somehow fails to police its own in the People's Paradise with the same vigor...
It's a trap. American colleges championed socialism for too long, and look what happened to our White House in 2008 and 2012 and to our economy from 2008 through today.
Without any pretense.
Oh wait . . . those are only "core socialist values" in the West. In Communist countries "core socialist values" are a strong military, respect for authority, and fanatical patriotism and nationalism for the mystical "socialist motherland."
It really seems like two separate ideologies, doesn't it?
My coworker went to Bejing U.
Uhhh...no. They are all about the money. They all want those prized high-paying jobs, either in China or overseas.
“Respect for” authority or forced worship?
