Confucius believed that people should respect their elders. He believed that they had more intelligence because they had been around longer than others. He believed they were the key to a good society.

Confucius also valued education. He believed that good leaders were people with knowledge. Upperclassmen had to take a "test" that would prove how much they know. It didn't matter if they were born an upperclassmen, they still had to take the test.
