"Wu Yifan" in elementary school English textbooks was renamed "Wu Binbin", People's Education Society: The revision took into account the opinions of parents to avoid misunderstandings in learning


2022-01-14: [Article Link] Original title: Change of name “Wu Yifan” in English textbooks for primary schools to “Wu Binbin”, Pedagogical Society: revision takes into account parental opinions and avoids misunderstandings in learning In recent days, parents have posted the latest English textbooks for primary schools, in which a young boy with glasses “changed his name” from “Wu Yifan” to “Wu Binbin”. “Wu Yifan” is a laughing boy with glasses and one of the main players in the textbooks published by the People's Education Press in English (PEP) primary school English. Last year, after the news that entertainment star Wu Fan was arrested for rape was exposed, some netizens claimed that it would be possible to change the name of WuYifan from the English-language PEP textbook in the third grade of primary school to Li lei as a child? And that parents in the Internet whispered the name of the role to the artist, fearing that it would have a negative impact on the child. On 3 August 2021, the People's Education Press published an information note to the effect that “Wu Yifan” corresponds to the Chinese name “Wu Yifan” in the accompanying teacher's book. The spelling name has been in effect since the first edition of the teaching material was validated in 2001, and has been in existence for 20 years and has no connection with the artists involved, who have only appeared in the public domain in recent years. On 14 January, nine news outlets learned and verified that the role had been changed to “Wu Binbin” in the English textbooks for the fourth and sixth grades of primary schools of the latest edition of the People's Service. Ms. Li, too, said to the 9th news that she was worried about the impact on her daughter, who was in the fourth grade of primary school, and strongly supported this revision, “after all the terrible events involved, it is difficult to explain to the child if he asks questions”. The staff of the People's Education Publishing House told the nine parties that the revision had indeed taken into account the views of some parents and had avoided misunderstandings among teachers and students in the course of their studies. Jia Li Won returned to search the fox to see more. Responsibility Editor (Responsible Editor):
