America needs more Chinese teachers, but Donald Trump’s immigration policies may make it harder to get them | South China Morning Post
“It’s a double-edged sword, because on the one hand, we don’t produce Americans with high enough proficiency in Chinese to become teachers,” said Shuhan Wang, head of the Asia’s Society’s Chinese Early Language and Immersion Network, who estimates that well over 80 per cent of current primary and secondary school Chinese language teachers are foreign born. “On the other hand, then we are tightening the process of allowing teachers legal status to teach here.”

Repressive Experiences among China Scholars: New Evidence from Survey Data by Sheena Chestnut Greitens, Rory Truex :: SSRN
This paper examines the nature of China’s current research climate and its effects on foreign scholarship. Drawing on an original survey of over 500 China scholars, we find that repressive research experiences are a rare but real phenomenon, and collectively present a barrier to the conduct of research in China. Roughly 9% of China scholars report having been “taken for tea” by authorities within the past ten years; 26% of scholars who conduct archival research report being denied access; and 5% of researchers report some difficulty obtaining a visa. The paper provides descriptive information on the nature of these experiences and their determinants. It concludes with a discussion of self-censorship and strategies for conducting research on China.

Effectiveness of education outlay to be strengthened - Gov.cn
In recent years, the State’s expenditure on education has accounted for over four percent of GDP, but the fundraising, usage and supervision methods still are not mature. Therefore, China decided to adjust fiscal expenditure on education, with more funding tilting towards poverty-stricken areas while maintaining the proportion of education outlay to GDP. A fundraising mechanism featuring governments at the core and multichannels as supplements is to be improved.
