Last year the political curriculum for primary and secondary school students in China got updated to better adhere to "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era" (quite a mouthful, so let's use SWCC). I happened to have their PDFs saved on my drive and thought some of you might be interested in their contents.
Even if you can't read Chinese it's still worth looking through it as it makes prominent use of imagery (especially the primary grade materials) and many of us (especially in the West) look upon these study materials with envy.
One thing that stood out to me is that while there is a chapter dedicated to China's navy and military in the junior high book; said chapter is immediately followed by the chapter on peaceful collaboration and common destiny for humankind, thus making sure to emphasise that China's military might should only be used to defend China's borders and not to intervene in other nations.
