Beijing Shuts Down Christian Faculty, A whole lot of College students Disadvantaged of Schooling

11/06th/ 2021 China (International Christian Concern) – Last September, a Christian school in Beijing’s Tongzhou District was closed by the authorities, causing hundreds of students to lose the school.

China Aid reports that authorities in Tongzhou District have ordered the Christian School Golden Reed Kindergarten & Elementary School Learning Center to vacate its property and fire the school.

Founded by the Golden Lampstand Church in Beijing, the school serves Christian families by providing daycare and education. Thanks to the Christian background, some students who are discriminated against in public schools, such as people with autism or special educational needs, still find an education here.

More than hundreds of children attend the school, which offers a well-developed daycare center, kindergarten and elementary school. The school’s website shows that the campus is fully equipped with its own kitchen, playground, fitness room and library.

The measures taken by the authorities not only prevent students from studying, but the school has also had to abandon its facilities and suffers great losses.

In October, the ICC also reported on the raids on several other Christian schools in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Guangdong provinces. Home schooling at the Early Rain Covenant Church in Sichuan was also repeatedly searched. The trend shows that China is actively crowding out the space for Christian schools to exist. All religious schools must submit to the control of the Chinese Communist Party.
