BEIJING: China’s anti-graft watchdog has sent inspectors to universities to monitor teachers for “improper” remarks made in class, a top official was quoted as saying on Wednesday, part of efforts to instil Communist Party rules in education. Wang Liying, who runs the graft-busting Central Commission for Discipline Inspection’s team based at the Education Ministry, said in a statement on the watchdog’s website that part of their job was also to enforce political discipline. Rules that took effect on January 1 bar party members from making irresponsible remarks about major policies, or, in other words, criticising them, and it is likely Wang was referring to this. Her inspectors were mostly on the lookout for problems related to following the party’s line and policies, she said. “We are increasing our supervision and inspection of political discipline,” Wang said.
