China’s New Foreign Teacher Measures

China issued “Measures for the Hiring and Management of Foreign Teachers” (Draft for Solicitation of Comments) which reduces the current 3 years working requirement into 2 years, and removes the work experience requirement completely if the teacher has a teaching degree qualified in his/her home country, or a PhD. It also demands the employer provide 20 class hours of compulsory pre-teaching training on Chinese law, etiquette, teaching methods, etc. It states a number of breaches that employers can fire teachers as well as must register these breaches into a foreign teacher’s credit system, including any actions and words damaging towards China’s sovereignty, security and reputation, being involved in a cult, providing any unauthorized religious education or promotion.
