Small Branch Schools for the Rising Generations

A school or a branch school can be found everywhere in the DPRK, be it a far-flung island, a frontline area or a mountain village, even if there are only one or two children there.

Many educators are devoting themselves for the rising generations at the branch schools.

Jon Hye Yong has been working as a teacher of Suun Island branch school of the primary school under Sinuiju Teachers Training College for 30 years, and Jon Pok Sun, a teacher of Jamae Island branch school of Taedu Primary School in Hanggu District, Nampho City for 40 years.

Kang Son Ae, who graduated from Haeju Kim Jong Thae University of Education No. 1, has been teaching pupils for 20 years on a frontline island in the West Sea of Korea.

She has introduced various teaching methods as her pupils who have little ideas of matters and phenomena due to the regional features of a far-flung island.

Jong Mi Gyong, who graduated from Haeju Jo Ok Hui Teachers Training College over 10 years ago, is working at Jonggok branch school of Wonphyong Senior Middle School in Unnyul County where her mother has been working as a teacher.

Tens of years ago, her mother Ri Kum Sun, too, had volunteered to the branch school newly built for over 10 pupils in a mountain village in the Mt Kuwol area.

Five pupils are now studying at Yaksaemgol branch school located in a hard-of-access mountain village, which is affiliated to Yaksaem Senior Middle School of Technology in Sijung County, Jagang Province.

Over 100 pupils have graduated from this branch school up to now.

Han Chol Hwa volunteered to the branch school after graduation from Kanggye Teachers Training College over 10 years ago. She is also a graduate of the branch school.

Choe Chol I and Jo Pok Sun are a couple who teach in Muji branch school of Kalsan Senior Middle School in Chongdan County, South Hwanghae Province.

Seven years ago, they volunteered to teach at the branch school in a mountain village tens of kilometres away from their hometown. They have made many achievements in their work.

They have planted many fruit trees in the surrounding mountains together with their pupils, inspiring them to spruce up their home village.

The branch schools built in different parts of the country are small, but the hearts of pupils studying there are overflowing with warm love and devotion for their home villages and great ambitions and hopes to develop themselves into reliable pillars of the country.

In September 2017, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un met and had a photo session with the teachers who volunteered to work at branch schools on islands and schools in the frontline and mountainous areas. Speaking highly of pure patriotism they have displayed with conscience and devotion as the revolutionaries responsible for the future of the country, he stressed need for the whole society to learn from their view on the revolutionary life and the rising generation.

Regarding his love and trust as their lifelong treasure, the educators are devoting themselves to bringing up the rising generations.

Over the last ten years, more than 1 000 graduates of universities of education and teachers training colleges across the country have volunteered to work at the island branch schools and schools in the frontline and mountain village areas.
