Reforms in Chinese Ed
As mentioned last month, China is giving the private tutoring sector an intense makeover–converting firms to non-profit, banning foreign curricula and more. The department tasked with implementing reforms is quite high up, thus changes may happen much faster than most expect.
How will these drastic changes affect Chinese student enrollment overseas? It can either be a great push in either direction.
If the Chinese educational system is reformed to be less stressful and test-oriented, or if foreign curriculum is removed from sight, fewer students may feel the need to go overseas. However, if the new policies hinder students from the education they desire, the new policies may also push more to study abroad, and at younger ages too.
