Leaked manuals detail regime at Chinese 'reeducation camps'

"The manual explains the three-prong “education” system in the camps. Those in the camps are to be instructed in Mandarin, undergo “labor skills training,” and finally, ideological education. 

In the section labeled “Ideological education,” camp personnel is instructed to “Effectively resolve ideological contradictions, and guide students from bad emotions.” Prisoners are repeatedly referred to as “students” throughout the manual. 

“Actively organize and concentrate on activities such as presentations, form a healthy and inspirational atmosphere, promote repentance and confession of the students for them to understand deeply the illegal, criminal, and dangerous nature of their past behavior,” says the manual."
