China’s Capital Offers Free Online Tutoring to Middle Schoolers Amid Education Crackdown
Beijing education authorities designed an online platform to provide free tutoring for the city’s roughly 330,000 middle school students as China’s capital tests government-funded supplemental education amid a sweeping national overhaul of the private tutoring industry.
The document, issued by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Education, notes that the platform would offer online tutoring in forms including one-on-one tutoring and livestreaming classrooms. All middle school students in the city would be able to access the services on nine school curriculum subjects from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily except weekends and holidays.
