In Shanghai, China, 11 public schools and 10 private schools will begin offering traditional Chinese education and the International Baccalaureate diploma. The classes will begin in September, but the IB curriculum could be challenging for students in China, who are more accustomed to straightforward lessons, one educator said. "For example, the math in the IB curriculum includes case studies that don't have a fixed direction. That requires students to search for documents and materials either by using computers or in libraries," Ma Feng at Shanghai High School said.
