Does compulsory English in Chinese public schools encourage a brain drain to English-speaking countries?

Considering how much easier it is for English-speaking countries to simply hire foreign talent than invest in public education, doing so is attractive to English-speaking countries with many of the few who do learn English well combined wit a lucrative skill leaving the country.

Supposing that public schools were free to teach and students to be tested in Chinese Sign Language, Esperanto, and other languages, this would encourage more intelligent Chinese to serve China's deaf community or promote more equitable international communication rather than just subsidizing English economies.

The English language should not be blamed for the exodus to English-speaking countries; there are many other factors involved.  Your proposition is too simplistic!
