One of many bans on international funding included variable curiosity entities, a typical construction by which Chinese language firms use to checklist within the U.S. Current violations of the capital bans have to be addressed, the doc mentioned.

A coverage doc of the identical title — referring to decreasing prices for after-school tutoring — was amongst 5 authorized at a Might 21 assembly chaired by Chinese language President Xi Jinping.

This guy has no idea what he is talking about
The dictatorship government is always trying to use their big hand to intervene, instead of allowing the "Invisible Hand" to be at work. History has been showing over and over again that the "Big Brother hand" has never worked in the end.
"… it has been largely cheered by social media in China"?? That's really a joke. Well, don't forget that basically there isn't any true public opinions in China because everything has been under Chinese government's scrutiny.
Get 10000 American kids and ship load them to China and live exactly the kinda student life in China. Then CNBC should do a survey on the 10000 American kids thereafter. Best is ship the interviewer kids to China…. for heaven sake.
Those people who think China’s action is good should learn some history and economics. The demand for going to good college is always there in China. The education institutions are just supplies to meet the demand. When these companies are banned, private tutoring does not go away. The rich can still hire private tutors easily using their network and wealth. While the regular people and the poor will have to pay a much higher cost and risk to hire a qualified tutor. It will make it much harder for the poor kids to compete with the rich kids. The truth is, after the policy was announced recently, many parents in China were struggling to keep in touch with the private tutors they know. And the price of private tutoring hiked dramatically.
South Korea did the same thing in the 80s in the name of equality. Ten years later the rich dominated in all the top colleges. The regular people started protesting against the policy.
Well said by the guest.finally someone know a thing or two about why Chinese government does what it does another than distorting and slander in most mainstream media.
"It's largely been cheered on social media" – Yes of course… you're going to argue with the CCP? lol…
CNBC is full of it! It can't even pay a real person from China to look into it! Both Chinese and American sides have total different perspectives! Sad!
Knowledge has always been a path to the prosperity of a nation. This is actually a good thing for other countries to try and pass them. This is actually good news.
Gordon chang : China is going bust.
Kramer : Don’t buy China stocks .
China : We want to stop everyone from being forced to take online tuition to stay competitive.This will benefit society .
Kramer : The Communist are taking over the online tutors comp. sell all China shares. We don’t care that it benefits the Chinese society. We want to make money off all Chinese.
The truth is China does not want their people being educated to a high standard, well, at least to their middle and lower class. China relies on cheap labour. If China’s next-generation are all academically skilled to a high level, then their factories and cheap labour costs will suffer, leading to businesses moving to cheaper countries.
Another video of nonsense from western media. China is not a garbage dump for American capital, lies and slanders.
And this is why Baidu and Baba are bangers at this price.
This is the right move to stop for profit tutoring centres which is earning huge profits. Only China dare to make such daring move for the good of people. I am in full support of this daring move.
As long as children have to compete and be number 1 at all cost to succeed in China, Parents will continue to find other ways of tutoring and making their children spend their entire life behind a book.
A lot of Chinese Government apologists here. The crackdown is about CONTROL and any good intentions are secondary at best.. Of course social media in China is supportive lol are they going to go agaimst the CCP?
You're talking nonsense.
Is this an American intelligence agent?
Okay we still have a huge population and if they want to stop focusing on cutting edge education for population and a private option I wonder how that's going to work for the Chinese in the long to midterm like the next 20 or 30 years. Maybe it won't matter but who knows
Wow…this guy's about to be banned for life from CNBC, CNN, and Fox. His critical thinking does not fit their everything-is-bad-in-China narrative.
every time american media talks about chinese internal affair, it is a joke. do not want to become an idiot ,too.
The move has been cheered on social media – does this guy know that there is no freedom of expression on Chinese social media and the government can’t be criticized??
Omg this guest thinks he knows the real reason behind China crackdown on tutoring … what a gaffe … no wonder the west stagnant
If urban families are spending, on average, 25% of their incomes on after school tuition, then banning that expenditure is removing one barrier to larger family size. This has nothing to do with creating a fairer playing field. I have seen videos about party officials paying for falsified exam results, education is as corrupt as all other fields in China with the influential always on the winning side.
how stupid is to say people wanted this education afer hours to be reoved,,,when people dnt even understand what is good education,,,and they are willing to pay for those clases even when they have to make sacrifices,,it would smarter (although also a lie) that the goverment is gurdig the peoples beest interest,,when uin factthis is an attack to business people wh do not work in full alligeance with the gverments and the oe thing that the gov desises the most is they are trying to build foreign capital in other words taking their money out of china
This topic got much deeper this week. If it was really about lessening families financial burden, why are they now banning foreign textbooks in public schools and cancelling exams altogether in some provinces? 😬 Imagine if Canada banned foreign language classes in schools and then said it’s “what the public wants” … yikes.
The government should step in a prevent race-to-the-bottom dynamics. This is no different, fundamentally, from the 40 hour work week, an
American law which prevents private companies from creating a race-to-the-bottom dynamic where workers compete with each other to show who sacrifices the most. You can't let private companies run society based on their profit motives, you suckers.
Limits have to be set on private power and influence. There is nothing wrong with that. It's not "picking winners", just making rule changes to the game. People have a right to decide the rules of the game. That's why we don't have children working in mines 80 hours a week. Are child labor laws "picking winners"?
Don't you know private tuition is illegal – China will not let a child be corrupt be western ideology, There are many Filipino ayi (housemaid)s working in China and all are illegal bcos they are teaching young Chinese ;toddlers different ideology. The authorities are just closing one eye. Shanghai has teh highest paid for Filipino ayi almost Rmb10,000 – 12,000 so now it s time to CRACK DOWN
Brilliant move China – at least are not moving navy fleet to Haiti
It has nothing to do with educational equality between the rich and the poor. China simply doesn't want foreign companies, foreign investors dominating their educational system. They want full control. The rich will find a way to either pay their children into school, or pay a higher price for private tutors. The working class will be greatly impacted.
This method rly help kids who are overwhelmed with the various tuiton i really don’t see a bad thing in this
This is the beginning of the end for the TEFL industry in China. The need for Chinese students to learn English is primarily based on two factors: to study abroad, and because it's part of their important Gaokao tests. China recently terminated partnerships with 300 foreign universities, and as COVID-19 is still prevelant in countries like USA, Canada, UK, etc., parents will begin sending their children to universities within China instead of abroad. If China does remove English as one of it's compulsory subjects, and I believe it will do fairly soon, then this will be the end of TEFL in China. Parents will no longer need to pay lots of money to send their children to expensive training centers to learn English. It seems that a big percentage of foreigners in China are there to teach English, within a few years they will be without a job and returning to their home countries as China becomes even more isolated.
Winnie the Pooh will destroy China back to the stone age.
I thought Americans were all about equality. When China does it, it's bad, but when the US does it, it's good.
How can an american say that forbidening a business is good for the clients?
This guy is a CCP propaganda guy
So what this "analist" is telling me that China a country where parents force their children to study for better grades out of hope for better position is cutting that education off and people are happy? Yeah right
Another example why Chinese people don’t have true freedom. Their government banning them from schooling their kids more and telling them to go outside. To fix their low birthrate problem, a problem their government created itself with the 1 child policy. It’s just a repeating cycle.
the hair style tells me everything,
As a Teacher in China: Wow! I can't believe how all these comments missing the big point. First off, these aren't tutoring centers… they are English training centers. The truth is they are eliminating the opportunity for people to learn English(Foreign Culture). People talking about the kids being over worked(they are)- blame the public school system. These kids go to these centers as their form of entertainment.
China's official excuse for kicking out all English-speaking tutors from their country is a lot of B.S.. They ALREADY have hundreds of billions invested in high tech and developing the fastest-growing military force in the world, so they certainly can afford to teach their own children a foreign language, ESPECIALLY one so vital in their increasing dealings with the US. The ONLY REASON they booted out all English tutors from their country is to stop all western or American influence of their children, no matter how slight or benign.
