President Kim Il Sung's Lofty Outlook on Posterity
Pyongyang, October 15 (KCNA) -- It was the greatest happiness for President Kim Il Sung to treasure and take care of the rising generation.

The President, regarding to bring up younger generation as an important issue related to the future destiny of the revolution, did not stint anything for the children.

He saw to it that Children's Corps schools were set up in guerrilla bases during the arduous anti-Japanese armed struggle and measures were taken to build nurseries, kindergartens and schools after the liberation of the country.

When the first nursery was built in Pyongyang, he called at the nursery where he showed warm care of the children who started to walk.

Although there were many urgent problems to be solved for the construction of a new society after the liberation of the country, the President put the pencil issue on the agenda of the first session of the Provisional People's Committee of North Korea. He disbursed a huge amount of state fund for educational expenses such as the construction and repair of schools in Juche 35 (1946) when the state was financially insufficient.

It was none other than President Kim Il Sung who instructed officials that schools for the bereaved children and orphanages were built in the period of the hard-fought Fatherland Liberation War (1950-1953).

He visited Pyongyang Songbuk Primary School (then Pyongyang Primary School No. 19) on April 1, 1954, the school-opening day, and acquainted himself with defective points of the school building and took a measure to use a nearby building as school.

The history of President Kim Il Sung's love for the rising generation is carried forward by General Secretary Kim Jong Il.

The children in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea are called as "King" of the country and are growing up as reliable successors to the revolutionary cause of Juche, enjoying the benefit of free education under the affection of Kim Jong Il.
