Cleaning up chaos in international schools
The Ministry of Education (MOE) of China has vowed to crack down on unlicensed international programs, after the number of programs snowballed. The number of joint institutions and programs launched by domestic and foreign educational institutions has reached nearly 2,000, with only 90 institutions and high schools having gone through proper licensing procedures, indicating that an overwhelmingly large number of these programs are in a legal gray zone. Some international programs lack transparency in the management of international schools, and have veered away from the original goals of introducing higher quality education resources, advancing the development of domestic education, and serving as a stepping stone for students who wish to studyabroad.
