In terms of new curbs imposed on foreign entities in academia proposed recently by China's State Council to tackle the latter:

"The new law, which comes into effect on Sept. 1, halts the teaching of foreign curricula in schools from kindergarten to grade nine (K-9) and prohibits the ownership or control of any private K-9 schools by foreign entities."[...]
