BEIJING — China’s Ministry of Education (MOE) on Oct 19 urged regulation on the use of Chinese Young Pioneers (CYP)’ emblems and signs, following cases of inappropriate commercialized use in some areas recently.
According to the statement, local education authorities and the Communist Youth League of China (CYLC) and CYP branches should launch a thorough inspection of the use of CYP emblems and signs in primary and secondary schools, particularly the inappropriate commercialized use of them.
Any misconduct, if found, should be brought to the local authorities of market regulation and public security, and dealt with in a timely manner, the statement said.
Regulation measures are specified in a statement jointly issued by the MOE, the Central Committee of the CYLC, and the CYP National Working Committee.
Founded in 1949 and led by the Communist Party of China, the CYP is a national organization for Chinese children aged 6 to 14 years, mostly primary and secondary school students.
