May Seventh Cadre School

  (Redirected from May 7th Cadre School)

The May Seventh Cadre Schools (simplified Chinese: 五七干校; traditional Chinese: 五七幹校) were Chinese labor camps established during the Cultural Revolution that combined hard agricultural work with the study of Mao Zedong's writings in order to "re-educate" cadres and intellectuals in proper socialist thought.[1]
