Understanding life education in mainland China: Views through the lens of moral-civic education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters

Abstract

This chapter examines and reflects on the development of life education in mainland China, particularly through the lens of moral-civic education. We review the practices of life education and examine how its meanings have been constructed in the scholarly circles and at the policy level. This chapter also discusses the issues for the accommodation between the state's vision of a “good citizen” and the further development of life education in the mainland society. We contend that life education underpinned with positive values and virtues should be practiced in the framework of civic-moral education in the mainland Chinese context.
