The October issue of It is is now available, both in paper and ink form throughout the city and as a digital PDF. Here, editor-in-chief Ryan Gandolfo presents the magazine:
Anyone who has a friend working in education in China has probably heard of the recent changes in the multibillion-dollar extracurricular training center industry. In order to alleviate both the academic and financial burdens of families, Beijing is cracking down, among other things, on the training center program.
In this month’s cover story, Nation editor Alistair Baker-Brian delves into the world of out-of-school education and assesses how training centers are affected by these new laws. Find out on pages 28-37.
Elsewhere in the magazine, Guangzhou-based writer Joshua Cawthorpe digs up dirt on ketchup’s origins and its ties to Fujian Province (pg10-13). In the Arts & Life section, we chat with Marc Lussier (also known as DJ Digital Circus) to learn about his adventures in the music entertainment industry in China (pg15).
Unfortunately, this is the last issue of our Arts & Life Editor-in-Chief, Phoebe Kut, which will drop from It is after more than two precious years with the magazine. We wish you all the best Phoebe, and we will miss you!
Finally, we hope everyone had a great National Day and are getting ready for an epic Halloween.
