Wu Qiubei: The "History of Humiliation" in Chinese History is not enough, and the Opium War is not described enough
Congressman Wu Qiubei believes that the "history of humiliation" in the current Chinese history department is insufficient. For example, "the results of the Opium War are very little talked about." .
He quoted Chinese President Xi Jinping as saying that "the historical period before the reform and opening up cannot be used to negate the historical period before the reform and opening up, and the historical period after the reform and opening up cannot be used to deny the historical period after the reform and opening up." Much room for improvement.
Chen Bihua, Principal Assistant Secretary-General (Curriculum Development) of the Education Bureau, said that the bureau has made great efforts to make students learn more history. Middle and junior high school courses include the Anti-Japanese War, the Eight-Power Allied Forces, the Japanese Invasion and the founding of the People's Republic of China. More war history, I hope students have a deeper understanding of modern history.
