      I remember at school, in history class, Chinese history was the largest subject covered.  Consequently, I left school knowing a great deal about China, but nothing about British history, because the subject was never covered.  What I have learned about the history of my own country, I have discovered myself, since leaving school.  I was even unaware that Britain used to have an empire.  It is very important to learn about the history of other cultures, but I wish I had learned at least something about my own country. 

      Chinese studies should obviously be an important subject now, as China is on its way to being the biggest economy in the world, and its political influence is ever more important.

    Seems in the context of the present times they
    want bureaucrats to be stupid.

    It is funny that you learn almost nothing of your own society on high school, and yes in present times, Chinese socialism is most definitely in the business of partial equality among it's people and the simplification of government official education to prevent a overhaul of the current system.

    Does not surprise me to hear that Chinese History is so well covered in the Schools. The same commie lovin Liberal Socialist Democrat Progressive scum who have betrayed us for decades, are the ones who built China with our wealth and power as the symbol of their treason against, and conquest of, America.
