What makes people even more unthinkable is that the content of training is meditation. In addition, the training mode of training people to commission has also been questioned by many parents. At present, more than 30 parents are negotiating with the Brain Cube training institute to refund more than 2 million training fees. Local market regulators have also intervened in the investigation. So, what kind of training is this? Is it really so magical? For parents, how should we safeguard rights?
Seven days become a poet, blindfold can argue no effect, full refund.
Zheng Julin, a Yueqing citizen, came to the Brain Cube Training Center in March this year through a friends introduction and attended a seminar. At the meeting, sales consultants said that through a series of whole brain development courses, children can improve their memory and logical thinking ability, and even become poets in seven days, blindfolded and discernible.
Zheng Julin told VOA: He said that you have developed your right brain thinking, left brain thinking, left and right brain balance, anyway, you have a good memory, and naturally the results will come up.
The seminar also invited parents to share. Some parents said that after learning the brain Cube course, their grades increased from the class countdown to the top five. In addition, the sales consultant promised that within three months, the childs participation in the training was ineffective, and the Brain Cube would refund all the money. After listening to these introductions, Zheng Julin signed up for his children with the idea of refund if it was invalid, and paid a total of 68,000 yuan in tuition fees.
Zheng Julin recalled: Many parents and teachers go up and then swear to say how good and how good it is. Parents are invited to share his achievements. In a short time, their achievements have increased dramatically. We just started a few lessons, and we havent had any effect yet. Then he promised that the promise would be effective. After learning it, it wont work. Full refund.
Is mental development course meditation and crouching?
Zheng Julin said, after a period of study, his childrens performance has not improved, but has declined. When he talked with other parents, he found that more than 30 parents of students had formed a refund protection group. Many of the children who participated in the training were boarders in junior high school and senior high school. They were very nervous about their studies. They squeezed out weekend breaks to attend Brain Cube courses. But the contents of the lessons were just for students to meditate, and even required them to put coins on their foreheads when they returned to school. This makes parents wonder.
Another parent, Zheng Zhiyuan, said, To tell the truth, I think its a bit too abstruse to speak. It takes more than 30,000 words to learn a thousand words. Then I squat there every day for half an hour. I have been confused about the relationship between writing and squatting.
In addition to the lack of recognition of teaching mode and teaching effect and suspected false propaganda, parents also questioned the Brain Cube operation mode.
Zheng Zhiyuan said, Later, I thought it was a bit false. If you pull a person in, he can get a commission, and the Commission is quite large. You pay 60 thousand and 8, a commission more than 10 thousand, you pull five or six is equivalent to using other peoples money.
Person in charge: no one forced you to pay.
Reporters in the national enterprise credit information publicity system query found that Yueqing this brain cube training center has registered in the market supervision department, business scope is brain application development, training, education consulting. Yu Keshuai, head of Yueqing Brain Cube, said that the Brain Cube course was effective and parents voluntarily paid to register for it. He said, Some parents come here after half a year or a year to say that high prices have no effect. This is one point. He has studied for a long time. You said that after a month or two, you learned for a few days. You said that your child has no effect. You can say that the parents said that high prices have no effect. No one forced you to come here at the beginning. You must pay for it.
On September 13, Yue Keshuai, the head of Yueqing Brain Cube, and Yu Hongtao, the operation manager of Shanghai Headquarters, told parents that they planned to transfer Yueqing Brain Cube to another Training Institute for reasons related to the headquarters of the company. After hearing the news, parents became more determined to make a refund.
In this regard, Yu Keshuai said that if parentsrights protection affected the recruitment of Brain Cube and led to Brain Cube loss, then Brain Cube Shanghai Head Office may consider suspending training centers or transferring training institutions. However, the commitment will complete the course content according to the original agreement. For example, if you pay how much money, we will give you the lessons as long as we have to attend, because after this, it may be difficult for us to continue to do this part of the enrollment earnings, then the headquarters will consider ah, if you are really losing every year, how do you say to continue?
Local market supervision bureau: filing investigation
Reporter inquiry found that brain Cube training institutions have been exposed by a number of media. In February this year, the Shanghai Bureau of Industry and Commerce announced 12 typical cases of false and illegal advertisements which were investigated by the Shanghai Industry and Commerce and Market Regulatory Department in 2017. Brain Cube Childrens Training Advertisement is one of them.
Yang Hongyuan, director of the office of Yueqing Market Regulatory Bureau, said that it was difficult to quantify the effect of whole-brain application development, which was also a difficulty for parents in safeguarding their rights: This whole-brain application development is very general, such as Chinese, through a period of intensive training, what effect can it achieve? That can be seen, but how can we assess the development and application of the whole brain? Yueqing market supervision and Administration Bureau said that it had held several special meetings to deal with the consumer disputes. Next, they will intervene in the investigation according to the clues and evidence provided by parents: This matter has been filed under the circumstances of importance, the specific situation needs further in-depth investigation.
