Eduardo Neret of Campus Reform recently reported on some of the “many methods that Chinese nationals have reportedly used to gain acceptance into U.S. colleges and universities.”
“Fake transcripts and essays, falsified letters of recommendation and test scores, paid consultants, and fake passports and IDs” are some of the ways that Chinese nationals try to enter the U.S. educational system.
These incidents started out as isolated incidents but “has now turned into a vast, international money-making industry.”
In April, Hiu Kit David Chong, an admissions official at the University of Southern California (USC), pleaded guilty in April to wire fraud and in aiding Chinese students create fraudulent college applications. According to the Department of Justice, confessed to making $40,000 from a number of clients during the past few years by providing “false college transcripts with inflated grades,” “fraudulent personal statements,” and “phony letters of recommendation” to them as they applied to universities.
Additionally, the admissions official even offered to supply surrogate test takers for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) exam for international students.
A 2012 report by Time Magazine highlighted how a “huge industry of education agents” has grown to cater to a growing number of Chinese nationals who have desires of studying abroad at U.S. universities.
According to Zinch China, a consultancy firm, 80 percent of Chinese students use agents to file applications to U.S. colleges, with increasing numbers of them engaged in cheating. The company estimated that 90 percent of recommendation letters and 70 percent of college essays that Chinese students submitted are fraudulent. Furthermore, 50 percent of previous grade transcripts are also fraudulent. Ten percent lied about academic or extracurricular achievements and another 30 percent lied about financial aid information.
Surveys revealed that Chinese families view U.S. education as a luxury that can yield future financial benefits, which motivates the “whatever it takes” mentality that characterizes the manner in which Chinese nationals go about the application process. Zinch China also highlighted that the competition among college consultants and the pressure from parents also played a role in the cheating.
“Cheating is pervasive in China, driven by hyper-competitive parents and aggressive agents,” Tom Melcher, the chairman of Zinch China stated.
The number of Chinese students has grown substantially during the last decade. According to the Power of International Education, the number of Chinese foreign students in the U.S. as of 2019 was 369,548, which Neret noted is “more than the next three nations, India, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia, combined.”
What see here is another reminder of why the U.S. must drastically reduce migration from China. Although China has made somewhat of a transition from its authoritarian past, it still remains an adversary.
Like many U.S. adversaries, China recognizes the flaws in the U.S. migration system and will likely exploit them in ways that benefit its national interests.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
