Education in China: universities asked to include romance in courses
Can romance be taught? Is falling in love so important that it has to be included in courses in universities?
These became common questions after Beijing education authorities released a draft teaching program for mental health in college, advising universities in the municipality to teach students in their psychology courses how to love. The draft sparked controversy immediately after its release for public comment as soon as it was released.
“Romance can’t be taught. You should experience and comprehend it by yourself,” said Zhang Yu, a senior from Capital Normal University who just broke up with her boyfriend.
