Corrupting the College Board

Confucius Institutes and K-12 Education

In exchange for generous Chinese government funding, the College Board has given China strategic access to American K-12 education. Since at least 2003, the College Board has sponsored Confucius Institutes at K-12 schools, served as a recruiter for Chinese government programs, and helped the Chinese Communist Party design and gain control over American teacher training programs.

This report details the College Board’s corruption by the Chinese government and outlines key policy changes to protect and restore the integrity of the American education system.
