While you were worried about monkey pox and Johnny Depp's divorce this was happening.
Bias, indoctrination, and hostility toward self-governance present in the state’s education system has shocked and outraged Texans, resulting in demands for their public servants to act at local and state levels. As Texas Scorecard has illuminated throughout this investigative series, however, multiple infiltrations by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) wielding these same threats are also present in the state’s education apparatus.
As we previously reported, Confucius Institutes (CI) are the Trojan horse that facilitates this infiltration, all done under the guise of exporting language and culture.
While CI contracts have come and gone, some things remain—namely, the relationships between Texas universities and their Chinese counterparts. Many universities have transitioned their Confucius Institutes into Chinese Institutes, which are merely variations of the original minus the direct funding from the Chinese government.
Many school districts have forged new networks of Confucius Classrooms via organizations that do not shy away from doing business with the CCP, the International Leadership of Texas Global being one of them. However, this next decade may be defined by a new kind of agreement between Texas and Chinese universities—one not directly orchestrated by the CCP, but still just a stone’s throw away from its all-encompassing reach.
