VIDEO: China’s Kindergarten to High School Influence Strategy

National Association of Scholars

How does China funnel money into American schools? Is corruption involved? What are the roles of nonprofits in this influence? Is China expanding its influence in K-12 education in other ways (e.g., buying private schools, publishers, etc.)?

In this webinar, we will discuss how China is expanding its influence in American K-12 education through various avenues and what this means for the future of academic freedom in our school system.

This event features Nicole Neily, president and founder of Parents Defending Education that released the report Little Red Classrooms; and Ian Oxnevad, Senior Fellow for Foreign Affairs and Security Studies at the National Association of Scholars and author of The Company They Keep and co-author of After Confucius Institutes.
