South China Morning Post reports on our latest report in collaboration with China’s National Institute of Education Sciences and TAL Group, titled China K-12 After-school Training ‘To Business’ Market White Paper 2020.

China’s K-12 after-school education market is expected to see rapid growth after the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, reaching 1.4 trillion yuan (US$200 billion) by 2025, driven by new technology and the continued merger of offline-online educational activities, according to the white paper.
