China bans for-profit private schools


Beijing, November 7, 2016: China has banned profit-led private schools from the 9-year compulsory education system, which covers primary to junior high school, according to a revised law.

The revised law on private education was adopted Monday at the close of the National People’s Congress (NPC) Standing Committee’s bi-monthly session after a third reading.

China’s compulsory education is a nationwide free system, supported by funding from the central government.
