    I'm fairly sure that North Korea would also be an exception. Of course, those countries have a state religion:
    China will introduce the political ideology of the Chinese President in its national curriculum. "Xi Jinping thought" will help "teenagers establish Marxist beliefs", said the Ministry of Education (MOE) in new guidelines. The ideology will be integrated from primary school up to university.

    Article 14 of the UN Commission On Human Rights of the Child states that children freedom of thought etc.


    How can such freedoms be exercised if brainwashed or exclusively taught religion .
    I consider it a crime against children to inculcate religion.

    Now children's rights include freedom from pollution, greenhouse effects etc. It has certainly broadened over the decades.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Or telling young kids about ''white priviledge'' or that Black lives matter more. Putting white boys in front of the class and tell them to be ashamed...indeed. And taking time away from other subjects to teach Indigenous staff to those who may instead be willing to learn about things that they find more interesting/relevant.

    Students should be taught to look for truth, not what is spoon-fed to them in books. The history of humankind in Australia did not begin 250 years ago, when Black Lives Didn't Matter, but 60,000 years ago when the first humans arrived. That saga is not only true but also interesting/relevant. Our colonial history is only a small part of the story.

    Really? and what should students be taught in China? Who decides what is the truth and what is not?

    The aim of inquiry teaching is to teach students to search for truth themselves, rather than acceptance at face value

    So when students are being told about ''great value'' of Indigenous culture to all of us....it happens in a way that encourages students to question the value and decide for themselves...or the value is being imposed?

    “What we’re doing is really exposing kids to the reality of what is Australia: it is multicultural; it is Indigenous; it is located with Asia all around us and it has a rich colonial history in which Aboriginal people have participated.”

    You cannot teach the history of Australia without dealing with the time before It was called Australia and what happened thousands of years ago.

    Participated, Yes! Multicultural- Yes! But without installing certain politically correct points into their minds and balancing time spent on different topics based on significance

    Is any of this part of the National Curriculum in Australia, as 'Xi Jinping thought' is in China?

    Note word ''reconciliation''....emphasis that kids need to ''reconcile'' with someone...may be better let them decide if they feel there is a need for reconciiation or not.

    Also, Would I be a kid, I would ask the teacher...why do I need to reconcile with my indigenous classmate...if we never had a fight before? Btw, I find Chinese history far more interesting ...At least based on the works that I have been reading .

    Question for Scott:
    N.B Requesting others not to reply before him or comment on the question: Do you think it is important for schools to teach to write in Indigenous Languages?

    P.S. REMINDER FOR OTHERS NOT TO REPLY/COMMENT .
