CHINA SCHOOL PRINCIPAL FRAUD
The CFTU has recently opened an official investigation on 37 Chinese school principals across China reported by expat teachers for extorting teachers for money to obtain their release letters. Some of the complaints can be read in our blacklist comments section below .If you have any evidence or information to help expand our investigation, please send us an email in strict confidence to tips@ChinaForeignTeachersUnion.org This investigation is already having an impact even beyond our reach as expats and even former Vice-Principals are now speaking out as you can see here...
Be advised that Shane English has been tentatively cleared of any wrongdoing in the Wenzhou fiasco involving the principal of Pingyang Quishi School (Wenzhou) which they say has not been affiliated with Shane English for over a year, but which continues to illegally use the Shane logo, brochures, books, and good name when recruiting both teachers and students. Our official response is as follows:
"Due to a delayed response from Shane English, we only now discovered that they are no longer affiliated with the Wenzhou School involved in this fiasco, even though this school continues to use the Shane name in their sales pitch and brochures. Unfortunately this happens in China where "cooperation" is common and reputable foreign companies allow local Chinese partners to us either good name. We regret that the email contact addresses found on the internet for Shane were not still in service as we mistook their lack of a reply as indifference. To be clear, Shane English is no longer affiliated with Pingyang Quishi School of Wenzhou whose principal is selling release letters to their foreign teachers. The U.K. teacher who made the complaint online here on our website has still not received his release letter as required by law."
We recently received an email from a foreign teacher at Pingyang Quishi School who now claims the school is still affiliated with Shane English and we are awaiting some documentary evidence to be provided to us. Here's the story of what took place...
