Problems at Kaien language school
Posted 17 December 2009 - 07:19 PM
Questions: what kind of school is Kaien language school anyways, and what kind of problems are they having?
I found a bit of info after googling, but if this school is/was important, it might be beneficial to discuss it here.

If anyone's interested they could check eslcafe.com and similar sites - no doubt there are some teachers telling all (that they know).

Full disclosure: I write a column on chengyu at the German language community blog of chinesepod, but other than that have no affiliation with them. Was just curious what the hubbub was all about...

When Ken suddenly took off, it was a huge shock for all of us at ChinesePod and Praxis. We had no notice and have limited knowledge of what happened. We are not in a position to speak for Ken.
Curiouser and curiouser.

Also fairly clear that ChinesePod is owned by Praxis, and not the people who own or ran the school.

Some relief for victims of KaiEn English fiasco as ChinesePod CEO downplays Ken Carroll's role (by the way you can read here: Jenny Zhu is Hank Horkoff's wife??? That's new.)
Stranded staff gets partial pay
And the discussions are going on @ ChinesePod where quite a lot of students have questions, opinions, doubts:
Where is Ken?
