    Williams contributes to Atlantic Council piece on AUKUS deal

    Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States recently announced a nuclear-submarine deal known as AUKUS that sidelined France, prompting Paris to recall its ambassador to the United States for the first time in the 243-year-long alliance between the two nations. Michael Williams, associate professor of public administration and international affairs, was one of several experts who weighed in on how the U.S. and its allies should navigate the diplomatic upheaval in the Atlantic Council blog post, "Experts react: The AUKUS deal has shaken the transatlantic alliance. What should the US and its allies do now?"

    Yingyi Ma speaks to The Diplomat about educational inequality in China

    In July, China’s government issued new regulations that drastically limit for-profit tutoring services and prohibit foreign investment in Chinese private education companies. Some describe the moves as a way to ease the pressures children feel and the financial burdens parents face in a society that prizes intense pursuit of academic achievement. "The root of the problem is the widening social inequality, and the privileged and wealthy will come up with alternative ways to maximize their children’s education advantages, such as hiring private tutors to teach at home,” says Yingyi Ma, associate professor of sociology.

    Yingyi Ma examines role of school counselors in China in new study

    "Educating the Elites: School Counselors as Education Nannies in Urban China," authored by Yingyi Ma, was published in Comparative Education Review. Ma's qualitative study of 18 school counselors across eight international divisions in Chinese public high schools reveals that school counselors are like “education nannies” to the children of elites in China. This means that they work assiduously and relentlessly to provide around-the-clock services to students and their parents, who target top-ranked colleges overseas. Their work is complicated by the differences between the U.S. and Chinese school systems, so that much of their job is to shepherd anxious children and their parents through the muddy waters of the cross-cultural straits of college admissions.
