What Do North Korean Schoolchildren Learn About The United States?

Many Americans wonder what North Koreans believe about the United States. The education system in North Korea is completely state-financed and a 12-year-education is compulsory for all children. North Korean child propaganda is fed to children in grades as early as kindergarten. North Korean anti-American nursery rhymes and cartoons pervade the classroom and children’s educational programming. But what are North Koreans taught about the US in school? The information they are fed is a heavily distorted view of history and current realities about the United States. They are also taught unbelievably ridiculous things about the abilities of their current and past leaders. One thing they know for sure is that the American imperialists need to be hated, and this is a sentiment that doesn’t look like it’s going away any time soon.
