The DPRK marked the 40th anniversary of the publication of President Kim Il Sung‘s work “Theses on Socialist Education”.

In his work on Sept. 5, Juche 66 (1977), the President gave perfect answers to all theoretical and practical issues arising in the construction of socialist education.

The past four decades since the publication of the work were years in which the ideas and theories on building the education set forth in the theses had been successfully embodied under the guidance of the peerlessly great men of Mt Paektu to further consolidate the best socialist educational system and give a face-lifting to the educational contents and method, conditions and environment.

A meeting was held at the Central Youth Hall Monday.

Present there were Choe Thae Bok, vice-chairman of the C.C., the Workers’ Party of Korea, officials in the field of education and officials concerned, teachers and researchers of universities and schools at all levels in Pyongyang and teachers who volunteered to work at branch schools in islands, forefront and mountain schools.
