In such a situation, the school administration is unable to meet the expenses of its buildings. Given this, many schools are selling their buildings.
China bought 17 schools
China is buying these damaged schools indiscriminately. This has not happened with one or two schools, but with the entire 17 schools. These schools have been bought by the companies belonging to the People’s Republic of China at cheap prices and are now waiting for the Corona period to end.
By the way, even before Corona, China had started buying British schools. The reason for this was the fall in the British currency pound. On the other hand, the Chinese economy rapidly moved upwards. In such a situation, it became easy to buy the loss-making school buildings.
Will put its ideology in the minds of children
It is believed that after this, at the right time, China will start these schools and impose its ideology.

Since they pay a lot of money, the institutes cannot even separate them. However, for the past several years, they have been in controversies regarding their policies and methods.
