Q: How to mislead parents at a training school for money?

http://news.youth.cn/sh/201708/t20170812_10497557_1.htm

 

A cctv reporter tells New Oriental that he is a recent university graduate that majored in English.

 

His training is how to con parents into getting rid of their money and how to convince parents the child is worse than he  or she really is in English to get them in a lower class and get more money.

 

He exposes the whole thing in an article.

 

I can't read the Chinese, so somebody let me know what city, etc. I may short the stock, trades in the US if it becomes a bigger scandal

Just about 100% of every problems related to education in China are to be blamed on the owners of both schools and training centers, it's nothing to do with the Foreigners at all in any way whatsoever.

But of course the Chinese are quick to blame Foreigners for obscure curriculums from the 90s and their kids being placed in the wrong level classes. As if it had anything to do with Foreigners at all.

They can make as many new visa rules they want, it's not going to change anything, Chinese bosses aren't going to pay 40-60k month for legitimate teachers on working visa when they can get a bum on business or tourist visa for 10k.

The day Chinese realize and admit that other Chinese are out here to trick and cheat them and to take their money, and then demand change at the top level of the education industry, then things will improve.

Another article about it with a quote from the president of New Oriental but the translation is not coherent.

I suppose the schools will all have to come up with a new con to used on customers, I'm quite sure they all copy each other and use the same playbook for getting students, they certainly all use the same playbook for recruiting based on the similar stories you read on this forum from foreign teachers all over China.

I worked at Guangzhou New Oriental once. I had students that could carry on a fluent conversation being placed into beginner phonics classes. Needless to say, it was a horrible experience.
