The French indeed used the school textbooks in order to justify their colonial rule. They actually represent the Vietnamese as backward people and primitive. They show them that Vietnamese are incapable of effective think but are good in the manual labor work. They also called them as "skilled copyists" in the book and illustrate that Vietnamese neither can rule nor creative. The children at schools are ensured that the French will bring peace through their rule. They ensure at school level that colonial rule of French are right.
