The exploration of China's education reform has never stopped while facing the challenges of educational development in the new era. When it comes to education, the report of the 19th CPC National Congress proposed to “implement the fundamental task of Moral educationˮ and “make more contributions to nurturing socialist builders and successors with all-round development in morality, intelligence, physique, aesthetic and hard-working spirit. In the past few years, moral education was placed on the same important position as professional education and actively carried out in all levels of educational institutions such as primary and high schools, colleges and universities.
