A target audience for many propaganda posters during the Four Modernizations period was young people, since they would serve an important role in helping China reach its modernization goals by the year 2000. Posters aimed at primary-school children advocate courteous behavior, practicing good hygiene, honoring teachers and elders, and respecting social morality. Other posters overtly convey political messages to instill service to the Socialist cause and loyalty to the mother country.
