News on October 26, according to media reports,The 4 campus of Nanjing Giraffe American Language Training Center (Xinjiekou Store, Wanda Jinjie Store, Yuhua Yuecheng Store, Jiangning Baijiahu Store) has been in a state of “shutdown” since October (video).
According to preliminary statistics from parents and staff, the amount to be fulfilled in the four campuses amounts to more than 40 million yuan.
Some parents said before that they could resume classes, but now there is no teacher. The head of the school district has not yet given any solutions.
Regarding the current situation of training institutions closing down or running off the road, relevant lawyers said that the dispute between the training institution and the parents is a civil contract dispute, and parents can file a lawsuit in the court to request the off-campus training institution to refund fees and bear liquidated damages. According to Article 563 of the Civil Code: “If one of the parties delays in the performance of the debt or has other breaches of the contract that makes it impossible to achieve the purpose of the contract, the party may terminate the contract.”
