Closed school offers to partly pay teachers

FOREIGN teachers of KaiEn English Training Center, which closed suddenly earlier this week, will receive 20 to 30 percent of their lost salary tomorrow as the first batch of life aid, the Chinese partner of the joint institution announced today.

Chinese staff and students were told to wait until the financial situation of the school was figured out.

Students can either apply for a restored education program or refund, which, however, may take a while.

The Chinese Partner, a training school affiliated to the Shanghai Construction Group, stared to record teachers and students' information from yesterday.

"We will restore the education order soon," said a SCG staff member surnamed Yao, who collected student's information in the school's headquarter in Xuhui District.

They received files from about 20 teachers and 100 students yesterday.

"I learnt the closure from news report," said Wang Kun.

He was still having a class in the school's Pudong branch on Monday evening.

He had no idea of the closure until he learnt from TV news on Thursday. He took a leave from his work to register his information yesterday.

The school's five branches have all been closed.

Foreign teachers said that they are owed at least 2 months of salary ranging from 12,000 yaun to 40,000 yuan, even higher.

Chinese teachers' salaries were delayed even longer on average, though their monthly wage is lower.

Hundreds of students who have paid for tuition, ranging from 7,000 to 10,000 yuan, have not finished or even received any education yet.
