In the Name of Confucius is the first documentary exposé of China’s multi-billion dollar Confucius Institute, a Chinese language and culture program set up in partnership with foreign educational institutions. Since 2004, CIs have found their way into over 1,500 universities and schools worldwide. At the same time, millions of students inside China have been dropping out of school due to poverty. Why wouldn’t China spend the money on its own children? Is there a hidden agenda to the Confucius Institutes? And how are they impacting our society? When Canada’s largest school board, the TDSB, is slated to open the world’s largest Confucius Institute, the school trustees find themselves embroiled in a growing global controversy
