New government guidelines to be released for China’s online tutoring industry

Education Minister Chen Baosheng announced on Tuesday that upcoming government guidelines will regulate private tutoring centres that have expanded their curriculums online. Chen did not specify what these regulations would entail, but last year’s guidelines for offline centres, which set restrictions on class times and fee collection, could give some indication.

中国政府即将出台在线教育行业监管新政

本周二教育部长陈宝生宣布,即将出台的教育新政旨在规范民办辅导教育机构的线上教育课程。陈并没有谈到这些规定的具体内容,但是去年颁布的线下教育政策强调从业教师必须具备相应的教学资质,机构不得一次性收取时间跨度超过三个月的费用,具有一定参考价值。

Chinese school operator warns of ban on M&A deals

At this year’s Two Sessions, the chairman of Yuhua Education, one of China’s largest private school operators, has called for the removal of a clause in a new draft law that restricts schools’ expansion through M&A deals. Li Guangyu argued that the law ‘would restrict the development of listed companies, which are China’s most regulated and highest quality private education operators’. The law is thought to stem from concerns that fast-expanding schools are putting profit before teaching.

中国学校经营者呼吁取消限制学校并购交易的条款

在今年的两会上,作为中国最大的民办教育集团之一的宇华教育(Yuhua Education)董事长呼吁取消新法律草案中一项限制通过并购交易实现学校扩张的条款。李光宇认为,这项法律“将限制受政府监管最严格、质量最高的众多民办教育集团的发展”。这项政策的出台被认为源于政府担忧民办教育的快速扩张会导致只注重盈利而忽视教学现象的出现。
