China will carry out education in human rights in secondary and elementary schools in various forms, said the National Human Rights Action Plan of China (2009-2010) released by the Information Office of China's State Council Wednesday.

The Government will gradually increase the content of the law and human rights in courses of secondary and elementary schools. By making good use of the courses of ideological and moral Standards, China will foster students' awareness of the obligations and rights of citizens, tutoring them in the ideas of democracy, rule of law, freedom, equality, fairness and justice, as well as a healthy concept about interpersonal relations, collectivism, nation and society, according to the plan.

Human rights education in secondary and elementary schools will be conducted in a flexible and vivid way in line with the characteristics of students at young ages, it said.

Through varied and vivid activities after class, students will receive education in human rights from first-hand experiences and build up a healthy personality. The reform of teaching and school management will be energetically pursued, and a democratic, equal, and interactive relationship will be advocated between teachers and students, encouraging students to participate in the democratic management of the class and school, so as to enhance their awareness of democracy, rule of law and human rights through experiencing an equal and democratic relationship.

In senior high schools, besides human rights education of a general nature, education in the "basic rights and obligations of citizens" stipulated in the Constitution and knowledge of international human rights will be carried out, the plan said.
