Kim Jong Un

Schools introduce three-year course

23 Nov, 2014

The 81-hour course about the supreme leader’s history is apparently intended to develop his cult of personality. It is shorter than the course that school curriculum contains about the Great Leader, his grandfather Kim Il Sung, which takes 160 hours, and Dear Leader, his father Kim Jong Il, which takes 148 hours. South Korea’s KBS World Radio cites a copy of the North Korean Education Committee’s compulsory education outline, which details the history of Kim Jong Un as an official school subject; it is:

taught based on materials distributed by the Workers’ Party of Korea and focuses on Kim’s birth and early life

There are apparently no textbooks but the course is said to be:

teaching Kim’s quotes, theses and orders he gave to the ruling party and military.
