It depends on where in China you are Michael and also how much 'power' your school or recruiter has. I'm 60 and still going strong and last year at my school they hired an American aged 62. The more remote areas will hire over 60, for example Inner Mongolia, but that's if you're already in-country. The 60 age limit is for those from outside China, so yes, if you're outside China your chances are slim over 60.

...thanks for the information.

I know a few people over the age of 60 that are working in China. Now they are not working on the correct visa but it is possible. I wouldn't risk it but some of these people are great teachers and they even work in government schools. You can try maybe if the school you want to work with has Guanxi you could the correct visa. If not they may have you work illegally.

Then, on the other hand, China does not have a Constitution and Bill of Rights including the Equal Employment Opportunity Act and Commission to back it up. It is illegal to discriminate in America in regards to age. I just received a doctorate degree in education in 2013 and have government loans to repay, therefore, I will need a job in education as a teacher or administrator. If you can't get a visa over the age of 60, does this mean that they're trying to hold people hostage--which is breaking international laws of the United Nations. I have never been sharper at any time in my life than now. Evidently, if they don't want to hire, then it's just not at THEIR best interests and it's THEIR lost. They lose out on experienced, mature, dedicated employees. My assumption is that it is expected for those who are still committed and dedicated to the profession of education at that age, to start their own schools and educational organizations.
