Fuzhou Blasts Crackdown on Illegal Schools

On November 23rd, Cangshan District and Taijiang District started enforcing the directive to close down unlicensed training schools/centers caught in the previous two stages of inspection this year.  The first stage is set from end of May till June 15th, when special inspection teams are formed and intelligence is gathered. The 2nd stage lasts from June 15th to July 20th, when the inspection teams get down to business and give out red cards to all the illegal operators.  According to Fujian Education TV, a total of 10 inspection teams were dispatched and 31 training schools/centers were ordered to suspend operation in Gulou District alone at this stage.  “All that have not acquired valid licenses is not allowed to run their business”, said Mr. Zhang, the deputy director of Private Education Sector of Gulou District.  According to PRC Private Education Promotion Law,  all private schools/centers are required to obtain Registration from the Industry and Commerce Department and Operational License from the local Education Bureau.  However, the process of getting an operational license is often criticized as being not only laborious but also expensive, which breeds non-compliance. This opinion is echoed by a proprietor of YoLe, a private piano training institute in Gulou District on one of the raid days July 20th.  (more…)
