And yes, it could happen here. “In four prominent cases in recent months, Chinese students at Australian universities have complained about teaching materials being incorrect or insulting to China,” Gwyneth Ho reported on the BBC web site on September 6, 2018. “The incidents have gained increasing attention in both nations, especially in the media, and forced apologies or statements from the universities.”

“In the most recent case, a lecturer upset Chinese international students by listing Taiwan and Hong Kong as countries in course and test materials. One classroom confrontation was recorded and shared online.” Have you heard about anything like that happening here? Think Confucius Institute.
