Over 500 lo­cal train­ing in­sti­tu­tions shut down

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Shang­hai has shut down more than 500 lo­cal aca­demic train­ing in­sti­tu­tions for safety is­sues or for not hav­ing li­censes and qual­i­fi­ca­tions, Laodong Daily re­ported Thurs­day.

To main­tain or­der in China’s com­pul­sory ed­u­ca­tion field, lo­cal ed­u­ca­tion author­i­ties started in 2017 to reg­u­late train­ing cen­ters, pri­vate school ed­u­ca­tion and com­pul­sory ed­u­ca­tion. Author­i­ties im­ple­mented a series of mea­sures in­clud­ing pro­hibit­ing in­sti­tu­tions from teach­ing stu­dents above their lev­els or ahead of school sched­ules.

The aca­demic train­ing mar­ket in Shang­hai has de­vel­oped over the past three decades, but many prob­lems have arisen, for in­stance the rights and best in­ter­ests of tu­tors and stu­dents are not well pro­tected, and ag­gres­sive teach­ing meth­ods have also lead to a neg­a­tive im­pact on so­ci­ety.
