  • Description

    ALL THE PRIMARY SCHOOLS UP TO THE UNIVERSITIES WERE CLOSED IN CHINA AT PRESENT ON ACCOUNT OF SO CALLED CULTURAL REVOLUTION AND IT WILL BE CLOSED INDIFINITELY IN THE FUTURE, HOWEVER, KINDERGARTEN AND NURSERY ARE STILL OPEN THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THIS IS YEN YEN HOA NURSERY IN THE CITY OF PEKING WHERE 140 CHILDREN ARE ACCOMMODATED FROM THREE YEARS OLD TO A SEVEN YEARS OLD. THEIR PARENT USED TO LEAVE THESE CHILDREN TO THIS NURSERY EARLY IN THE MORNING BEFORE THEY GO TO WORK AND THEY PICK UP THE CHILDREN IN THE EVENING WHEN THEY FINISH THE WORK ON THEIR WAY HOME. 140 CHILDREN ARE DIVIDED INTO FIVE GROUPS ACCORDING TO AGES AND TEN TEACHERS LOOK AFTER THESE CHILDREN NOT ONLY FEEDING AND ALSO ELEMENTARY EDUCATION. THE TEACHER USED TO TRAIN CHILDREN JUST TO PAINT PICTURES OF ANIMALS AND SING A SONG BUT SINCE THE BEGINNING OF CULTURAL REVOLUTION. THEY TEACH SIMPLE QUOTATIONS FROM MAO TSE-TUNG, REVOLUTIONARY SONG AT PAINTING THOUGH CHILDREN DO NOT UNDERSTAND THEM BECAUSE THEY CAN NOT READ THE CHARACTER YET. SO THE CHILDREN JUST LEARN BY HEART WHATEVER THE TEACHER SAYS AND REMEMBER IMPORTANT QUOTATIONS FROM MAO TSE-TUNG IN EASY LANGUAGE. BOYS AND GIRLS OVER FIVE YEARS OLD ARE FOND OF PLAYING "MILITIA PLAY" CARRYING TOY RIFLES AND MACHINE GUNS AND THEY ATTACK THE PILL BOX. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR PLAY AMONG KIDS, SAID BY A TEACHER.

    NOW IN CHINA EVEN KINDERGARTEN AGE CHILDREN ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE [ILLEGIBLE] TAUGHT AND TRAINING THOUGHLY THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.
