Reading the Red New Deal: How Xi Jinping is remaking Chinese education
Rumors have been swirling about a major overhaul to China’s education system, with the aim of reducing polarization and income inequality in China, restoring dignity to labor, and preventing the hollowing-out of the Chinese middle class. This week, Jeremy and Kaiser chat with Chang Che, Shanghai-based business editor of SupChina, about the changes afoot.
