State Department: American Kids Need to be Educated on China Threat

New report says attempts to challenge China are being undermined by anti-American educators

A new State Department report warns that the anti-American influence in higher education is undermining U.S. efforts to counter the China threat.

The report, titled “The Elements of the China Challenge,” was drafted by The Policy Planning Staff under the Office of the Secretary of State and warns that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is triggering a “new era of great-power competition” in which the CCP not only aims to be at the top of the “established world order,” but also seeks to revise it with China’s “authoritarian goals and hegemonic” ambitions being at the center of a new focus.

The report  gives a brief history of the CCP and its 20th-century Marxist-Leninist inspirations. It also outlines it’s vulnerabilities, including but not limited to the fact that because it is an autocratic state, it:

  • Limits the potential for innovation
  • Creates challenges in alliance building
  • Presents domestic challenges due to repressive tactics against its citizens

A 10-point plan is presented to help the United States overcome the challenges and threats China poses against the United States and on the world stage. A number of these points specifically draw a direct arrow to the work Clarion Project has done in its campaign to educate the public about the China threat.
