Language: English (en)
Summary: This study examines social studies curriculum in developing China. Primarily, this study analyzes the role of the social studies in mainland China in indoctrinating the transition to a market-driven, neo-liberal economy while justifying the continued presence of a single-party state with a communist facade. Additionally, this study examines the role of secondary social studies in fostering nationalism throughout the education system. In particular, this study will focus on how the obvious contradiction between a communist political ideology and a neo-liberal economic system is reconciled through social studies education. In terms of the development of nationalism in Chinese education, this study considers the potential consequences of this phenomenon as China becomes further intertwined with the globalized world. Finally, this study considers the prospects of curriculum reform in Chinese social studies and the potential for an ideological shift towards critical thought and inquiry, source-based learning.
