Three former teachers, including myself, have worked at Chu-Lin. We were taking a class and found out that we had all worked there. Some interesting things that we found out are that they lie and cheat the foreigners who work there. The promise them 12-month contracts for the second year, but for the first year, they can only give them a 10-month contract. At the end of the first year, they are told that they can only give them another 10-month contract.
In addition, throughout the year, the teachers are debased in the classroom because there is no support for them. I mean that they are literally asked to ‘babysit’’. The students can ‘shoot the finger’ at the teacher and it’s merely laughed at by the other teachers. They are not given any curriculum to follow or do. The reason behind this is that at the end of the year, they need a reason not to renew their contracts for 12 months.
They also deduct from 2,000 - 5,000 dollars from their pay and sometimes refuse to give it back at the end of the contract.
The interesting part of this is that the school has a foreigner doing all the dirty work for them. He helps them lie and cheat the other foreigners so that he will get a bonus at the end of the year.
Conclusion: It’s a real dirty school and something needs to be done to warn other foreigners about this school. We also agree that this foreigner who is helping them deserves to be deported.
Anybody have any suggestions!
