Gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials to study Chi­nese clas­sics

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Mil­lions of Chi­nese gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and civil ser­vants will be asked to learn an­cient Chi­nese clas­sics — or guoxue — as part of a pa­tri­otic course aimed at boost­ing their tal­ents and mo­rals.

To pre­pare for the na­tion­wide ed­u­ca­tion cam­paign, the Chi­nese Academy of Gov­er­nance has pub­lished its first se­ries of text­books on an­cient Chi­nese clas­sics aimed at of­fi­cials, the Le­gal Daily re­ported.

The de­tailed cur­ricu­lums are ex­pected to come out by Septem­ber and the cour­ses are go­ing to be rolled out across the coun­try in Septem­ber.

The text­books cover top­ics in­clud­ing phi­los­o­phy, self­cul­ti­va­tion of char­ac­ter, gov­er­nance, per­son­nel man­age­ment, rule of law, ed­u­ca­tion and so­cial moral­ity.

The Le­gal Daily said that the pub­lish­ing of the books sug­gested tra­di­tional Chi­nese cul­ture would be­come part of the of­fi­cial cur­ricu­lum for civil ser­vants.
