ChinaAid said in its report that a number of schools received notifications forbidding students to read religious books or use other -based materials.

ChinaAid noted in particular that the CCP does not publicize its censorship policies through official channels, but makes them known through internal notices. “For years, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has sent administrative orders (from higher to lower levels) through internal documents and internal notices that have contradicted the Constitution. Authorities do not, however, make the administrative orders available on official channels and public [outlets],” ChinaAid said.

Assist News reports that a primary school teacher from Chengde Elementary School in China’s Qingyun County sent a WeChat group message to parents, informing them that the CCP had sent a notice that students are forbidden from reading religious books.

According to ChinaAid, teachers in other schools, including those in Qingyun County and Shandong Province, also received such notices. “Usually, publicity department personnel, not teachers, send this type of notice to local commissions, and in turn, they forward the notice to all schools,” Assist News said.
In a statement about the restrictions ChinaAid said: “With the CCP’s recent, intense wave of suppressing Christianity, authorities intervene all online and onsite religious gatherings.”

“Officials fabricate charges to fine, detain, and arrest pastors, preachers, and Christians who speak publicly about their faith. They ban schools and only permit Three-self churches to sell the Holy , banning it from other churches. CCP authorities also ban the Holy Bible, books, and WeChat Christian official accounts on the ,” ChinaAid said.
