CHINA: Students lack political education - official

China's propaganda chief has said the teaching of communist ideology at universities is lacking, ahead of the anniversary of the 1989 crushing of the Tiananmen democracy protests, state media said on Monday, reports AFP.

Li Changchun, who ranks fifth in China's political hierarchy, pledged to step up political education in order to teach a future generation of leaders, the People's Daily said.

"There remains a rather large gap between the political ideological education of university students and the demands and undertakings of the Communist Party and state," Li was quoted as saying in a speech on Sunday.
