Chinese textbooks to be offered to UK schools

23-03-2017

UK schools will from September be offered Chinese maths textbooks in a bid to raise standards.

Schools in the UK have already adopted China’s teaching techniques in the subject, and now for the first time they will be able to use textbooks translated from their original Chinese.

A deal has been signed to publish English translations of dozens of textbooks used by Shanghai’s primary schools between publishing giant Harper Collins and Shanghai Century Publishing Group.

Colin Hughes, Collins Learning’s managing director, called the deal “a historic moment”.

“To my knowledge this has never happened in history before-that textbooks created for students in China will be translated exactly as they have been developed, and sold for use in British schools,” Mr Hughes told the state-run newspaper China Daily.
