China's Guest Teacher Program has placed 176 teachers in US schools, where they teach Mandarin Chinese and culture. The yearlong programme is overseen by the Chinese Confucius Institute Headquarters and the Chinese Language & Culture Initiatives at the College Board. Officials say the teachers, who undergo a rigorous selection process, help fill a shortage of Chinese-language teachers in the US as schools there work to offer more global lessons.
