Tell the Secretary of State for Education in Westminster to end Chinese propaganda in our schools
SUBJECT: Give young people the truth about Tibet
Dear Secretary of State,
I am deeply concerned about the influence of the government of China in our schools, through the Confucius Classrooms programme. China is providing money and Chinese citizens as teachers to English schools, and each one’s Confucius Classroom's activities must be approved by Beijing. The Chinese government abuses human rights severely in Tibet and across China and has admitted that the Confucius programme is part of its “overseas propaganda set-up”. I urge you to ensure proper democratic scrutiny of this programme and to provide guarantees that the presence of Confucius Classrooms will not lead to our children receiving a biased education about China and Tibet.
