Hong Kong parents fight China 'brainwashing'

About time they start pushing back.
Full story:
http://news.yahoo.com/hong-kong-pare...064048387.html

"Hong Kong parents are battling plans to introduce lessons praising China's Communist Party rule, saying the curriculum amounts to brainwashing and an attack on the city's cherished freedoms.
Up to 90,000 people, led by stroller-pushing parents and banner-waving children, took to the streets of the semi-autonomous territory on Sunday to denounce "national education", as the subject is officially called.
The issue has been on the city government's agenda since it was handed over from Britain to China in 1997, but a new teaching booklet lauding the "China model" of development has infuriated educators and parents.
"It will poison our children's minds," said 34-year-old office clerk Gordon Chan as he marched with his wife and nine-month-old daughter.
"This is putting politics before education."
Mercury Leung, a 21-year-old university student, said: "Students, especially those in primary schools, are like pieces of white paper. They absorb what is taught in schools................."

Ironically that is one of the events that the parents are mad about, the Chinese gov is leaving that event out of its' history. That along with most other "disruptive" behavior of recent years.
