Now they will have to spend one hour learning about the childhoods of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il, and another 30 minutes learning “revolutionary” music from the leaders’ childhoods.
According to reports, the new diktat has come from Kim Yo Jong, Kim Jong Un’s sister. who is now the most powerful person in North Korea and is now Kim Jong-un’s de facto deputy according to South Korean intelligence.
Seoul-based Daily NK has reported that the new diktat on ‘Greatness Education’ was introduced on August 25. It is aimed at “cultivating loyalty and trust toward North Korea’s leadership”.
The new curriculum reportedly tells preschoolers that Kim Jong Un was a highly intelligent child at just five years old, who “rode a yacht, did target practice, and liked to read”.
