How China’s EdTech Crackdown Is Also Reshaping Education Across the English-Speaking World

August 25, 2021

In a recent BridgeUniverse webinar, we discussed how dramatic changes in China’s education policies are affecting current and prospective English language teachers. In particular, we examined the effect of this disruption on teaching English online, which makes up a large portion of the Chinese education market (about 500,000 teachers). Why did these drastic changes happen? What has the immediate impact of these policies been and what outcomes will we likely see in the future? Will the ripple effects be felt mostly on international student mobility to the West or on the EdTech unicorns in China?
