Update to Cultural Revolution study groups

During the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in China, there were study groups in farm fields, factory floors, classrooms, and neighborhoods. The only study materials were Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung, the "little red book."

President Xi is updating the ideology study.

Courseware on Xi thought launched
Courseware on Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era has been launched for free download on several websites including people.com.cn and xinhuanet.com.

The courseware, developed by the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and the Ministry of Education (MOE), contains 30 subjects that focus on basic spirit, connotations and requirements of the thought.

The courseware is aimed at helping officials and the public, especially college teachers and students, to learn, understand and grasp the thought.

The CPC Central Committee Publicity Department, the MOE and the working committee of the central and state organs have jointly issued a circular calling for further study of the thought via the courseware.

[The courseware does not seem to be available in English.]
