Never heard of that before and I know a lot of people who have finished their contract and either renewed with the same school or got another job.Me included.

 

 Maybe your school either doesn't want you to renew, or they don't want you to move on to another school.

More info needed Mark.

What province are you in?

What type of school have you been teaching in?

How long have you been in China?

How many RPs have you had?

 

If you are in Shandong or Sichuan it could be the mysterious 5 year rule.....or it could just be some joker making up the rules as they go long as they are having a bad day.

Get a release letter and move to a new province....

Because someone is lying to you or because you are making this up.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
