Calligraphy skills to be taught in schools across China

Two boys practice calligraphy at a private school in Suzhou, East China's Jiangsu province on Aug 29, 2011. According to a newly released notice on the website of the Ministry of Education, China will launch a nationwide calligraphy education programme for basic education, including primary school, junior middle school and senior middle school, through extensive calligraphy classes incorporated under Chinese subjects and extra-curriculum activities. Certain areas with better educational resources have been required to begin calligraphy classes this fall. [Photo/Asianewsphoto]
