Dr. Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars (NAS), joins Jeremy to discuss the recent NAS report, "Corrupting the College Board: Confucius Institutes and K-12 education." He discusses the connection between the College Board and Hanban, the Beijing-based headquarters of the Confucius Institutes—an organization that provides Chinese government-funded language and cultural education within both U.S. colleges and K-12 schools. In recent years, the Confucius Institutes have received criticism from professors due to their role in Chinese government influence on academic freedom, overt censorship of academic materials, and surveillance of classroom activities. Dr. Wood delves into the growing relationship between the College Board and Hanban at a time when American scholars were growing increasingly alarmed by the pernicious influence of the Chinese state-funded academic initiatives on U.S. campuses. He also sheds light on the implications of these developments for academic integrity within U.S. K-12 schools.
