Gaotu Techedu, a China-based edtech company, previously known as GSX, announced Monday that it will cease offering curriculum tutoring services up to grade nine, or K-9, in the mainland Chinese market by the end of this year. The company says it will shift its business focus towards developing courses for professional education and explore opportunities in digital products and vocational education. Gaotu joins rivals TAL Group and New Oriental-backed Koolearn Tech in making business updates in response to China’s July crackdown on private tutoring. [Gaotu press release]
