China restricts for-profit schools

 From September 2017 for-profit international schools for six-to-fifteen year-olds will be prohibited from operating in China, according to new government regulations. Not-for-profit partnerships will be able to continue to enrol this age group but their fees will be capped.

The International School Consultancy (ISC) Research group reported that the new regulations, which surfaced in November, will mean that even non-profit schools, which can continue to operate, will have to incorporate the Chinese national curriculum in their programme and prepare students for China’s national pre-high school exam, the Zhong Kao. Students over sixteen will not be required to cover the local syllabus and will be able to enrol in any international schools, including those run for profit.

The implications of Turkey's failed coup on education sector

 The purge of civil servants following July’s failed military coup in Turkey seems to have hit the education sector hardest. Travel bans and orders to return to work have been imposed on university teachers, with mass sackings throughout the education sector. The EL Gazette has heard conflicting reports of how this purge has affected Turkish nationals and native-speaker expatriates working in English language education.

As of 3 August, purges seem to have abated, with no evident increase in dismissals. The government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had suspended 15,200 employees who fell under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, by far the biggest purge by government sector. Some 21,000 school teachers had their licences revoked. The focus is on alleged members of the Gülen Movement – an Islamic social movement that the Turkish government claims is a terrorist organisation.
