Foreign-run schools under scrutiny in China

International Edu News

Foreign-run schools in China are coming under closer scrutiny as the country launches ambitious plans to reform its education system over the next 15 years, with some institutions noting increased inspections from officials and concerns that new regulations may affect their operations. Already from the ages of 7 to 15, which are the compulsory education years in the country, all students must now learn the Chinese curriculum in full and sit the Zhongkao exam.However, from grades 10 to 12, they can still follow an international education and take exams such as A-levels or the IB Diploma.

There are currently 883 international schools and campuses in China catering to over 359,000 students, of which around 58% are Chinese nationals.
Private schools, including those run by foreign brands, are growing in popularity among China's middle classes. The iCPSs(international Chinese-owned PrivateSchools) are attracting some of the best students from wealthy families.
