Adrian Zenz :

I believe the title and some contents of this article to be misleading and potentially incorrect. Firstly, the notice text does not state that Uyghur language teaching is banned. Secondly, this only pertains to Hotan, not all of Xinjiang. Thirdly, Hotan actually advertised about 143 Uyghur language teaching positions in recent months of 2017. The statement given by one of the Uyghur informants is possible not correct or might only pertain to parts of the prefecture.
