An investigation conducted by parentsí rights organization Parents Defending Education uncovered that Thomas Jefferson High School in Fairfax County, Virginia has received "over $1,000,000 worth of donations from Chinese interests since 2014."

The STEM-focused public school, which is consistently ranked as one of the top high schools in the nation, has taken money from three Chinese-affiliated groups over the last decade: Shirble HK, Tsinghua University (Beijing) and the Ameson Foundation through its "Thomas Jefferson Partnership Fund" (TJPF).

Probably dumb to turn down free money that should benefit a US learning institution, but I fear that the money is not free from conditions and comes with required actions be taken by the school administrators that benefit the benefactors.
