On January 21, the Beijing News reported that hundreds of students in the second and third grades of Fenglan School in Jincheng City, Shanxi Province, had no academic status, could not get their diplomas, and could not take the college entrance examination in accordance with the status of ordinary high school students.
On the 22nd, Jincheng Education Bureau announced that Fenglan School is a private school. In the process of enrolling students for the entrance examination, the school used false propaganda and other means to recruit students who did not conform to the enrollment policy. These students do not meet the requirements for the registration of senior high school students, and have never acquired their status since they entered the school. The Municipal Bureau of Education will conduct an in-depth investigation into the illegal enrollment schools and hold responsible persons accountable.
On the afternoon of the 22nd, Xin Jing Bao reporters called Fenglan School many times. Until the publication, the phone had never been answered.
Discovered no student status before graduation examination
Chen Mou, parents of students in Fenglan School, introduced that in November 2018, when Senior Three students enrolled in the graduation examination, many students found that they did not have their school status because of the need to fill in their school registration number. Later, the matter spread in schools, many parents of students worried that their children did not have school status, so they asked the school about this matter, I heard that there are hundreds of students who have no school status in the third grade of senior high school.
Chen told the Beijing News that his child is currently studying in Fenglan School as a sophomore. After hearing the news that many senior three students have no school status, he once asked his childs head teacher if his child has school status. The head teacher said that this matter should be asked by the educational administration, but the teaching administration told me that the head teacher knew about it.
Chen Mou said that many parents of students asked the school fruitless, then went to Jincheng Education Bureau to inquire, many parents found that their children did not have school status. Afterwards, things got worse and worse. Later, some teachers began to talk to their parents and told them that all the students enrolled in Fenglan School for the non-high school entrance examination had no status. That is to say, these students can not get high school diploma, nor can they take the college entrance examination according to ordinary high school students.
Two solutions proposed by the school were rejected
According to CCTV, Fenglan School officials said in an interview that the situation of students without school status had been solved every year before and every year. At present, the school is communicating with parents to find solutions. Now the Jincheng Education Bureau has worked out a plan, and parents are being consulted about its maturity.
In this regard, parents Feng Mou said that in December 2018, Fenglan School did put forward two solutions: one is to let students take the college entrance examination as social examinees, the school issued certificates proving that students had studied in Fenglan School, but the school could not provide diploma and school credentials; the other is that the school can help students transfer to other vocational and technical schools in Jincheng.
Neither option is acceptable. Feng told the Beijing News that for the first solution, they felt there was a certain risk to take part in the college entrance examination as a social examinee, and the curriculum of vocational high school was different from that of general high school. Even if there were curriculum faults, students would have to adapt to the new school, which was not conducive to students. At the same time, the school did not say that they would have a student status if they transferred to vocational high school.
Therefore, in December 2018, when the school asked parents to sign a Letter of Notification on the Status of Senior High Schools with the seal of Jincheng Education Bureau, they did not sign it. At least nobody signed it at that time, and I dont know if anyone signed it in private later on. Feng said.
According to the letter provided by Feng Mou, a classmate and his parents, because you have not been admitted to ordinary high schools through the way of high school entrance examination, according to the relevant policies of the Provincial Department of Education, can not register for Shanxi ordinary high schools, can not obtain Shanxi ordinary high school diploma, can still participate in the high school academic level examination and achieve results, can obtain high school equivalent academic proof, can Senior High School Graduation, Equal Educational Abilitystatus registration to participate in the general college entrance examination.
False propaganda and excessive enrollment
Feng Mou recalls that in the mid-term exam of 2017, his children only took more than 450 examinations, failing to reach the scores of Jincheng No. 1 and No. 2 secondary public schools. After that, some friends recommended that Fenglan School is well managed and a closed boarding school. Only 370 points were needed to be admitted in that year, so the children signed up and soon received the admission notice from Fenglan School. At that time, we had no idea that there was no school place for children to go to school there.
In August 2017, Feng Mou took his children to Fenglan School to register. According to his introduction, Fenglan School has 12 classes in 2017, more than 700 students. Recently, he heard that the schools general enrollment plan was only 300 people, that is to say, there may be nearly 400 people without school status.
On the afternoon of January 22, a deputy director of Jincheng Education Bureau told the Beijing News that Fenglan School planned to enroll 350 students in 2017. The deputy director did not give a positive answer to the parentsclaim that nearly 400 students in Fenglan School in 2017 were over-enrolled. He only said that the actual enrollment of Fenglan School in 2017 was still in the statistics.
In addition, the Jincheng Education Bureau issued a circular saying that Fenglan School is a private school. In the process of enrollment for the entrance examination, the school used false propaganda and other means to recruit students who did not conform to the enrollment policy. These students do not meet the requirements for the registration of senior high school students, and have never acquired their status since they entered the school. Jincheng Education Bureau will further standardize school-running behavior, and conduct in-depth investigation of illegal enrollment schools, and hold responsible persons accountable.
That evening, Jincheng Education Bureau put forward two solutions to this problem: one is to continue to study in Fenglan School, to participate in the high school academic level examination, can obtain the same academic proof, can participate in the general college entrance examination. Secondly, the Municipal Education Bureau will actively coordinate with some students who wish to obtain high school diploma. Starting from the spring of 2019, the Municipal Education Bureau will register them with formal vocational high school status, transfer them to vocational high school, and obtain vocational high school diploma after completion of their studies, and register for the general college entrance examination or the corresponding entrance examination in our province.
