The survey and case study also reveal the same worrying educational reality. The quality of sustainable development in primary and secondary schools has been significantly reduced with the increase of grade in Beijing, China. The relationship between teachers and students is becoming increasingly tense because of the wrong values, and the moral added value of education is increasingly doubted. Human beings should rethink their own ways of living and learning, and unify green development, green schools, ecological civilization and sustainable development in the overall interests of human beings, and abandon narrow, selfish, greedy and vicious competition from each other. Sustainable development civilization is the latest stage of human civilization, which also originated in the gene of Chinese ancient civilization 5000 years ago. Human beings should achieve tolerance and reconciliation through education for sustainable development as soon as possible. Its success marks the establishment of a new key objective of world education as the quality of sustainable development: the truthfulness, noble, responsibility and hopefulness.
