Officers block kids from illegal school

THE 100-plus men accused by parents of blocking their children from entering an illegal school are law enforcement officials on a crackdown against an unlicensed kindergarten, government officials said.

Qibao Town government announced the operation yesterday after angry parents complained online that about 200 children were blocked by men lining up at the entrance of the privately owned Yingzhimeng day care center on Tuesday morning.

Parents said the men dressed in blue and grey uniforms didn't allow them to send the children to the school, but offered to send them to another kindergarten nearby, which parents said charges twice as much as the Yingzhimeng center.

A teacher with the center who refused to be named claimed the center was legal, but couldn't offer valid qualifications or licenses to prove its legality. An official surnamed Hei with Qibao government told Shanghai Daily that the center is among six unlicensed kindergartens ordered to shut by local authorities. Five of the six closed, but Yingzhimeng ignored the order.

Several parents became angry and scuffled with the law enforcement team, the report said. No arrests were reported.

The report said the center had severe safety and hygiene problems and its teachers had no qualifications.
