Many teachers in Beijing have been treated as part-time teachers in training institutions
According to the “Circular” issued by the Beijing Municipal Education Commission, in the process of carrying out special rectification of off campus training institutions, the Municipal Education Commission carried out law enforcement inspection on off campus training institutions and found that five in-service teachers of primary and secondary schools were paid part-time in violation of regulations in off campus training institutions.

In fact, this is not the first time that the education department has taken action against such behavior.
Earlier this year, the Ministry of education also publicly exposed eight typical cases of violating the ten guidelines for teachers’ professional conduct. Among the typical cases, one teacher of No.12 Middle School in Shijiazhuang city of Hebei Province started off campus training classes and induced students to participate in paid make-up classes.
In the above cases, the teachers involved were punished by administrative warning, deducting one year’s incentive performance pay, cancelling their qualification for two years’ evaluation and examination within the whole school. In addition, the principal leaders of the school were also criticized and admonished.
In addition, in other provinces, policies have been introduced to rectify the chaos.
For example, the Chongqing Municipal Education Commission has previously issued the work plan for the special rectification of the centralized training behavior of Chongqing off campus training institutions, which includes the organization or participation of primary and secondary schools and in-service teachers in the special rectification of training behavior.
According to the document, it is necessary to resolutely investigate and punish the behaviors of primary and secondary schools and in-service teachers in organizing or participating in off-campus training institutions in various ways, and resolutely investigate and punish the behaviors of in-service teachers in primary and secondary schools in organizing or participating in the training guidance of off-campus training institutions, or inducing and forcing students to participate in the training of off-campus training institutions and organizing paid make-up classes on their own.
