China Bars Foreign Curriculum in Private Schools

China’s State Council has announced new laws preventing the teaching of foreign curriculum in schools from kindergarten to Grade IX. It has also prohibited the ownership or control of any private K-9 by foreign entities. The new law is seen as part of a series of measures by Beijing to tighten control of its fast-growing education sector and public discourse. The members of the board of directors or other decision-making body at a private K-9 school should be Chinese nationals and should include representatives from the regulators, according to the Private Education Promotion Law. The K-9 schools will no longer be able to organise entrance tests or recruit in advance. They also will be barred from establishing private schools or converting themselves into private schools.
