我看何伟《江城》的英文原版，River Town ：
ONE THING that I came to understand very early was that Fuling Teachers College served a dual purpose. It trained teachers,but like any Chinese school it was also an educational extension of the Chinese Communist Party.
It wasn’t by accident that academic study came third. The top priority was political:these students were being trained to be teachers, and as teachers they would train China’s next generation,and all of this training was done within the framwork of Chinese Communism. Everything else was secondary——and if it contradicted basic theory, it wasn’t taught.
