U.S. Lawmakers Cast Suspicious Eye On Chinese 'Confucius Institutes'

U.S. agencies on Thursday promised stricter monitoring of China-funded Confucius Institutes.

They're cultural centers at U.S. universities.

They've been criticized for serving as propaganda arms of the Communist government in Beijing.

Officials from the State and Education Departments told lawmakers they would more closely police visas granted to the institutes’ staff.

They also vowed to do more to ensure that schools meet requirements to report large donations from foreign governments.
