In this episode, we sit down with Berlin to discuss China’s post-pandemic priorities for the future of education.

China is the world’s most populous country and its second-largest economy. Current growth trends suggest that China is poised to overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy within the next 6-7 years. China has a long and rich tradition of formal education that can be traced all the way back to the Han Dynasty. Coming out of the pandemic, will we see a transformation in China’s long-rooted education system? Berlin Fang helps us navigate these emerging trends and paint a picture for what the future holds for China’s role in education.
