The National Education General Association also announced that Huang Dexiang invited other scholars to give lectures in the training class. The content claimed that "I have set up a training class for primary and secondary school principals for many years. The results are quite good, and more than 200 principals have been named in the gold list. I also regard it as a kind of merit and serve the aspiring students." At the end of the article, he added, "I will pay 10,000 yuan for the hourly fee, and the high-speed rail ticket is not included."
Hou Junliang, chairman of the General Education Department, questioned whether this training course was a special course set up by Huang Dexiang himself, or whether it should be clarified that the private Tongde high school in Nantou County should be set up, and is it suitable for private high schools to set up a principal training course?
In the past, many universities have set up "credit classes" and "literacy training classes" with different names for the selection of principals of primary and secondary schools. The first primary and secondary school to offer training courses for the selection of principals.
Zhang Qiongfang, chairman of the National Education Federation High School Vocational Committee, also questioned whether this training class is a guarantee class for the principal's examination, and also participates in scholars and officials. Has he ever participated in the principal's selection of committee members for the written test?
Have you ever served on a selection committee?
Have you ever served as a school evaluation committee?
Is there any selfless love affair?
Will it become a cheap and symbiotic principal production factory?
The National Education General Administration calls on scholars who have served as education officials, are currently professors at university education-related institutes, and have served as the selection of principals of primary and secondary schools to immediately withdraw from the "training class" to seek self-clearance.
At the same time, the Ministry of Education should set up a special investigation team to thoroughly investigate whether the training class used its power to benefit its own students, and conduct comprehensive reforms in view of the lack of the current relevant principal selection system, so as to rebuild the trust of all walks of life in the system.
