Essentials of Education

  • The intellectuals will accomplish nothing if they fail to integrate themselves with the workers and peasants.
  • The educational policy must cultivate a firm and correct political orientation, an industrious and simple style of work, and flexible strategy and tactics. 
  • Educational policy must enable everyone who receives an education to develop morally, intellectually and physically and become a worker with both socialist consciousness and culture.
  • Students and intellectuals should study their specialized subjects and must make progress both ideologically and politically, which means that they should study current events and politics. 
  • Not to have a correct political point of view is like having no soul.
  • People have to learn while teaching while serving as teachers. 
  • To be a good teacher, one must first be a good pupil. 
  • There are many things which cannot be learned from books alone; one must learn from those engaged in production, from the workers, from the poor and lower middle peasants etc.
  • Education must serve proletarian politics and must be combined with productive labour. 
  • The working people should master knowledge and the intellectuals should become habituated to manual labour.
  • Destruction means criticism and repudiation. It involves reasoning things out, which is construction. There is no construction without destruction.
  • While students main task is to study, they should in addition to their studies, participate in other things like industrial work, farming and military affairs. 
  • The domination of schools by bourgeois intellectuals should by no means be allowed to continue.
