Michael is about to breach his contract and quit an international school in Shanghai after three years of teaching there, having been worn down by strict anti-coronavirus efforts.
Following two years of practically sealed borders, onerous health inspections, and quarantine regulations, the 35-year-old’s final straw came in early April when China’s commercial center was shut down.
“The economic benefits of working here no longer compensate for the lack of flexibility to come and go,” the science instructor added, declining to disclose his full name for privacy concerns.
As the COVID-19 pandemic and new education policies transform the working climate in China, Michael is one of hundreds of international instructors fleeing.
The scenario has prompted international schools to raise alarm bells, as China has opened up to foreign investment and talent over the last two decades.
Some people’s lives are now in jeopardy, while education quality will suffer in the long term.
According to a consortium of 66 schools in China that employs around 3,600 instructors, nearly 40% of Michael’s classmates would leave mainland positions this year, up from 30% last year and 15% before the outbreak.
And finding replacements is becoming more difficult, according to Tom Ulmet, executive director of the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS).
“People all around the world have been reading about the lockdowns and don’t feel compelled to partake,” he continued.
Apart from the departing instructors, international schools are seeing a reduction in foreign student enrollment as a result of COVID restrictions, which have caused many foreign families to leave while others remain.
This has altered the demographics of many schools, increasing the number of Chinese students with at least one parent having a foreign passport.
Middle-class parents have long viewed foreign schools as a method to increase their children’s prospects of getting into prestigious institutions throughout the world.
The entire yearly value of tuition paid to international schools is expected to be 55.4 billion yuan ($8.2 billion), with costs that can surpass 300,000 yuan ($44,000) per year.
According to the education website Xinxueshuo, there were 821 foreign schools in China by 2019.
As Beijing seeks to minimize foreign influence in the education system, some international schools for younger children have had to deal with shifting laws.
As a result, the name of Britain’s Harrow School was recently removed from a connected school in Beijing, and Westminster School canceled a proposal for schools throughout China.
Both Asia International School Limited, located in Hong Kong, and Westminster, whose subsidiary manages Harrow-affiliated schools in China, declined to comment.
All respondents from the education sector stated more strict COVID controls had made China a less attractive location for investment in a May flash survey of European firms conducted by the European Chamber of Commerce.
Because of the restrictions and lockdowns imposed by the Chinese regime’s zero-tolerance stance on COVID-19, parents with children attending overseas schools told Reuters they were more concerned about the quality of education on offer.
Melanie Ham’s daughter, along with her whole group, missed International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations in May because the Shanghai lockdown delayed delivery of question papers for the IB and Advanced Placement (AP) tests from overseas.
Ham admitted that her daughter’s school was doing its best, but she was still concerned about the future. “I believe they’re squeezing by with everything they can in terms of money, strategy, and emotional energy.”
According to Aleksa Moss, the head of early learning at an international school in Guangzhou, such problems spelled the end for some institutions in southern China.
“I’m sure it’s happening in Shanghai and Beijing,” she added, adding that “a handful of the lower-tier international and multilingual schools closed down here.”
The Chinese economy cannot withstand this kind of continual pressure for much longer. The mainstream media has nothing to say about the questionable things going on in our world as usual. All the pawns are being put in place to asphyxiate followers of Christ. The world has lost its morals after this pandemic. Christian teachings are a threat to secularism, centralized governmental power and the valueless entertainment industry; Which funds all the wrong people. Not to mention The World Economic Forum is casting its shadow on America; Budging the democratic party to adhere to a globalist agenda. This is foreshadowing of persecution and tribulation yet to come.
There is a correlation that can be made between the Chinese Communist Party and the Centers For Disease Control. And that is the CCP underreports its numbers to hide the fact that there is obvious falsification of statistics used solely as an excuse to exercise the incomprehensible power that they hold over their people. Not long ago there was civil unrest running rampant through China, conveniently enough ‘Zero COVID’ policy seems to have quieted down all dissidents.
As far as the CDC goes, they have to play at a different game; By over-reporting COVID-19 contraction and death statistics, they’re able to coerce citizens into believing that the situation is much more dire than it actually is. Why you might ask? Because we live in a free democratic society that doesn’t require us to cater to our governments every whim. We’re being lied to, it’s as simple as that. Once you come to terms with it, you may have a shot at seeing the next steps being taken by Klaus Schwab and his many neo-communist constituents. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
On Wednesday, the Democratic Party failed to approve House Bill 3755, also known as the Women’s Health Protection Act, in the United States Senate for the second time.
According to CBS News, the procedural vote on HB 3755 failed 49 to 51, with all Republicans voting in favor and one Democrat, Senator Joe Manchin, voting against it. Vice President Kamala Harris presided over the voting.
Last March, during a procedural vote on HB 3755, all Republican senators, including Manchin, voted to oppose the bill. At the time, the vote was 47-46, with 14 votes needed to prevent a filibuster.
In the wake of the United States Supreme Court draft decision leak, which seeks to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade verdict, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer promised on May 5 that HB 3755 will eventually be approved to protect women’s rights to abortion. Schumer went even farther, challenging Republicans to choose between overturning Roe v. Wade and safeguarding women’s rights.
In reaction to the failed commitment, Schumer expressed his dismay on Twitter, stating that the bill will now be shelved. The Senate majority leader argued that by rejecting the bill, the MAGA Republicans were attempting to eliminate women’s rights. Republicans, she said, are “shameful” for purportedly wanting Americans to return to a time when women had less choices over their bodies. He emphasized that they will not give up and that people “will remember this day” during the November mid-term elections.
According to National Public Radio, President Joe Biden expressed similar concerns in a statement broadcast only minutes after the Senate passed the bill. Biden lamented the bill’s rejection, which he said came at a time when women’s fundamental rights were under threat. It was denounced by the president as being against the wishes of the majority of Americans. In keeping with Roe v. Wade, Biden stated that his government will continue to protect women’s constitutional rights. He stated that his government plans to use all available tools and means to accomplish this.
According to New York Magazine, Schumer’s motivation for pushing the bill despite the fact that it is clearly certain to fail was to appease the Democratic base. According to NY Magazine, the Democrats have showed weakness in the previous two years by failing to pass popular bills such as the minimum-wage bill and the Build Back Better budget reconciliation plan. Other probable motives for Schumer’s activities, according to the media site, include changing the losing political equation and holding Republicans accountable for their unpopular ideas.
Meanwhile, Republican US Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia said in a statement on Wednesday evening that HB 3755 broke multiple statutes, causing her to vote no. Capito highlighted that the Supreme Court has yet to make a final ruling on overturning Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Planned Parenthood. Despite this, she claims, Democrats campaigned for HB 3755 to codify Roe v. Wade.
“This measure supersedes all existing state and federal abortion prohibitions. Under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, this law repeals faith-based conscience safeguards. Despite the fact that the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of public funds to pay for abortion, was initially approved in 1976, this measure allows federal financing for abortion. The statute also establishes the right to an abortion at any time during pregnancy. I have consistently voted against several of these topics. As a result, I voted no on this extreme measure today, and I am not surprised that it failed “Capito said.
The safeguarding and praise that these abortion clinics receive from the radical left is inarguably evil, and without regard for human life. These are historic times in our society in which we have to fight on the behalf of those who haven’t even been born yet. Psalm 139:13-16 says: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”
The FDA is absolutely not an integral source of information in terms of our biological well being. They’re proving to be a threat to humanity itself, by enabling people to asphyxiate innocent life without a second thought. There is also something to be said about the concerning mental state of an individual who finds themselves as a pro-choice activist. James 1:27 says this: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Perhaps Pro-choice activists should direct their attention toward the widows and orphans, as opposed to fighting for the right to take human life. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
