CCP influence in public schools | Eastern North Carolina Now

CCP national security threat

Hundreds of U.S. schools are now under the control of one Chinese company. Its chairman is allegedly a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Rounds of new action are making their way through Congress. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are pushing through one legislation after another with a goal in mind: countering the CCP's influence.


China’s infiltration of American K-12 schools is “almost everywhere,” according to Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars.

“That is, in every state that we’ve looked at, we have found instances of it, but I would say it’s concentrated in the feeder schools to elite education, which means mostly West Coast and East Coast, but not exclusively those,” Wood says

Concerns have been raised that the Chinese state is influencing the American education system by offering millions of dollars in funding to public schools, amid growing fears about its impact on the U.S.

At a hearing of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce on Tuesday, stakeholders claimed that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was using soft power to sway U.S. institutions—including some private schools as well as public schools—posing a national security threat.

The top public school in the United States received hundreds of thousands of dollars from groups tied to China’s military.

Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), part of Fairfax County Public Schools, is consistently ranked as the top high school in the nation. However, this element of its ties to Beijing has been largely unknown — until now.

Americans are increasingly wary of Chinese Communist Party influence on U.S. universities—and rightly so. Despite the Ivory Tower’s leftward slant, universities remain a wellspring of American scientific, technical, and engineering research and innovation.’s-damaging-influence-and-exploitation-us-colleges-and-universities-180581
