Chi­nese city to start ‘ rap sheets’ on teach­ers to curb bribery in schools

Global Times - - Mosaic -

It looks like stu­dents aren’t the only ones that will have per­ma­nent records.

Teach­ers in Nan­jing, Jiangsu Prov­ince will see fi les opened to record their per­for­mances in a bid to curb bribery and other mis­con­duct, me­dia re­ported.

Be­gin­ning Septem­ber 1, teach­ers from kinder­garten to high school will each have a per­sonal “ethics ar­chive,” lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion au­thor­i­ties an­nounced.

In­frac­tions in­clude ac­cept­ing gifts from par­ents or re­quir­ing stu­dents to pay for make- up lessons.

The fi les will serve as the ba­sis for an­nual as­sess­ments, raises, bonuses and dis­ci­pline in the com­ing years, the re­port read.

Many so­cial me­dia users ex­pressed fa­vor of the policy. “We should su­per­vise teach­ers while re­spect­ing them and their teach­ing to cre­ate a good ed­u­ca­tion en­vi­ron­ment,” wrote “Puzhe­hei.”
