Q: "forbid the hiring of foreign teachers outside of China": How to interpret this?

https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/shocking-overhaul-china-bans-profit-tu...

 

Interpretation 1): Chinese companies cannot hire foreign country-based tutors

                                                  or

Interpretation 2): Chinese companies are no longer permitted to hire and bring in foreign teachers

 

I am inclined to think that the omission of the word "from" is intentional, and thus the statement 

has only one main meaning.

 

Anyone else?

"As one would expect with any regulatory overhaul of China, there was a distinct nationalist flavor to the new rules: among other things, they also ban the teaching of foreign curriculums, tighten scrutiny over the import of textbooks and forbid the hiring of foreign teachers outside of China -- a curb that could have severe consequences for startups like VIPKid that specialize in overseas tutors. The government also ordered local authorities to tighten approvals for companies providing training on extra-curriculum subjects."

 

 

Curbing of the no. of Chinese students fancy to study at Western Universities ...i.e. lowering of the education cost overall.

 

It's funny Zero's comparison between Chinese real estate market (bubble) and education cost ...

I believe interpretation 1 and 2 both apply. If private schools can no longer teach the school curriculum or foreign curriculum, what exactly are they allowed to teach? Does this mean private English schools are going to go out of business, and they won't be hiring more native English speakers as teachers? It leaves me with more questions than answers.

We will have to quitely wait and see how that will evolve. I do sense a direct hit at the foreign tutoring business, in China and I expect that the employers not only they won't be able to employ from overseas anylonger, but they will have to rally up the paiments to the Chinese teachers' wages. Which means an inevitable crackdown on the business China wide.

Have the foreign teachers to adjust to this landscape and certainly they should leave the sinking boat.
