Great Persons' Feats for Development of Juche-based Education
Pyongyang, September 5 (KCNA) -- Today marks the 39th anniversary of the publication of President Kim Il Sung's celebrated work "Theses on Socialist Education" (September 5, 1977).

The work comprehending the socialist theory of education serves as a great program for training talents and an eternal foundation for the development of the Juche-based education.

President Kim Il Sung provided the Juche-based educational idea and the revolutionary tradition of education in the flames of the anti-Japanese war.

After Korea's liberation from Japan's colonial rule, he indicated the way for establishing the democratic and popular system of education and had worked heart and soul for the primary development of education in his lifetime.

He took measures to ensure schooling even during the 1950-1953 Fatherland Liberation War. And he saw to it that schools were built before anything else in the postwar rehabilitation period and that the universal compulsory primary and secondary education systems were enforced in the country.

Leader Kim Jong Il had invariably adhered to the President's idea and line of attaching priority to the education.

He established the well-organized system for training talented children and instilled the educationists and rising generations with strong will to keep their feet firmly planted on their land and look out over the world.

His foresightedness and wise leadership brought about great achievements in all sectors of building a powerful socialist nation.

Supreme leader Kim Jong Un authored such famous works as "Become Pillars Supporting a Prosperous Future Korea" and "Let Us Make a Revolution in Education in the New Century to Glorify Our Country as the One of Education and a Power of Talents". In the works he stressed the importance to glorify the great leaders' idea of education and their feats and indicated the orientation and ways for developing the nation's education onto a higher stage.

He made sure that the universal 12-year compulsory education was enforced in the country. And he visited newly-built educational bases one after another, giving precious teachings for further development of education.

Under his deep care and energetic guidance, such edifices were built or remodeled as the Sci-Tech Complex, apartment houses for educators of Kim Il Sung University and Kim Chaek University of Technology, the Songdowon International Children's Camp and Mangyongdae Schoolchildren's Palace and the atmosphere of giving importance to education spread throughout the country.
