Description
December 5 this year marks the one year since the proclamation of the national education charter which sets forth the objectives of the national education.

The objectives of our national education as cited in the charter are to inspire pioneer spirit toward a new history; to promote the traditionally inherited spirit of mutual help in our community; and to cultivate a national mind which will help further realize liberal democratic country. These are the objectives directed to laying basis for the far-ranged prosperity of the nation and to expenditing the modernizaion of this land.

Our national character which was once characterized by the pioneer-like spirit of our forefathers in the old days seems to be degrading to an attitude of fatalism and self-resignation through the tests and sufferings of times. Today our generation is faced with a task to free ourselves from the crusty old attitude and customs and leave proud heritages to our posterity, acting as a standard bearer in creating a new history.

The Ministry of Communications issues a commemorative stamp on the occasion of the one-year anniversary of the proclamation of the educational charter, hoping that the spiritual revolution lead to the reshaping of the attitude of our people.
