Two years ago, users of zhihu named it “gentle” and wrote “how many yangyongxin are there in China? Article, ignited the public opinion, the destruction of a private educational institutions – yuzhang academy self-cultivation school.
After two years of silence, yuzhang academy surfaced again. On October 5, 2019, tender posted again, revealing two years of revenge against volunteers at yuzhang academy and prompting a girl to fall into depression and commit suicide by taking drugs.
The closure of yuzhang academy two years ago was not the end of the story, on the contrary, it was only the beginning. This is true for volunteers, especially for the “problem youth” of yuzhang academy. The problem school closed down, but the problem did not end there, a yuzhang rebel posture, really emerged.
In wu village on the western outskirts of nanchang, yuzhang academy has two “old sites”. In the middle of the village was once a “girls’ school”. The archway in the archaize style had just been painted white. Then take a long way to the west side of the village, two years ago the center of the storm of national public opinion – yuzhang academy. Liu wei is like all yu zhang academy students, this is a sudden “nightmare”. Six years ago, the weather in nanchang in September was unbearably hot. At eight o ‘clock in the evening, my father led a stranger into the house. The man is 1.85 meters tall, wearing a police uniform, wearing a badge, calling himself “nanchang xihu district police”. He told liu wei: “someone downstairs was hit by a high altitude projectile, there are witnesses to see you this layer, please help us to investigate.” Liu wei had just had a big fight with his father. The two sides called each other names. He went into the room and fell asleep. At the moment consciousness is vague, not waiting for his response, “police” urged him to take his id card, “go to the police station to make a record.” One side of the parents, also disguised a face of surprise: “how do you happen to this kind of thing.” His hands were clasped inside out and he was escorted into a silver-grey van. One strong man on each side, and the one on the right was holding a zipping electric rod. He was quickly sent to the dark room. At the door of the small dark room, there was a pail of urine with a pungent smell, and next to it was a military quilt with a musty smell, where he slept. He was “locked up” for seven days with fierce resistance, fighting and self-mutilation. After the 8th day was released, violent education followed, beating steel ruler and standing in the hot sun for more than 10 hours. Sleep deprivation, bad food, extreme physical activity, it’s a discipline.
He chat with classmate, just know, the police is false, everything is premeditated in advance. It is a kind of outsourcing of sticks to filial son, “domestication”, which is the purpose of all violent education. He practiced sitting and standing posture with his classmates. With new parents visiting, training is even busier. They bow and nod and smile at the strangers and act the most obedient.
Three months later, his reluctant grandparents took him home, he went to report, father rushed into the police station, dragged him back. The relationship between liu wei and his parents was completely broken, and his temper became violent. He then threatened to “break up” with his family and “never interact with them”.
In April 2015, cen chao, from shangrao, was also tricked by her father and subjected to similar abuse. Three months later, he came out, producing a reprisal weariness and rebellion, taking a more drastic stance against his parents and the school. Compared with before he entered yuzhang academy, his reputation in the school was even worse, and he did not attend classes for a month. While cen chao became a “bad student”, liu wei, who did not return to school, was diagnosed with social dysfunction and depression. His brain was sluggish, blank, and he stuttered, afraid of the crowd.
In October 2017, the quiet wu village was a zhihu expose lit the fuse, yuzhang academy quickly exploded the public opinion, “small black room”, ruler, dragon whip…… There is no hiding place from the sun. Immediately, yuzhang academy announced the suspension of the school, and was cancelled school qualifications. A few years ago, the educational institution was selected by the local government as a sunshine school, recommended by six departments for pilot promotion.
Internet addiction schools have proliferated in China and corporal punishment is ubiquitous, but they have never been investigated. Yuzhang academy became the first case of Internet addiction school. An online name called zi mu college students, called more than 20 volunteers, organized 36 victims, common rights, report. However, many people, under the pressure of parental opposition, do not want to tear up the family relationship, one after another quit. But liu wei was different. He insisted that this was a lawsuit involving three parties, and his parents had an inescapable responsibility to Sue them together with yuzhang academy. Volunteers persuaded him to stay, after all, the public opinion of the value of justice over relatives is against him.
On December 4, 2017, liu wei and cen chao were among the first to receive the notice of filing, which, if successful, could lead to a court hearing in 2018. Cen chao was also waiting for that day, perhaps after the college entrance examination, he would sit in the court to help in the destruction of yuzhang academy and recover the compensation he deserved. Liu wei described the yuzhang academy incident as his rebirth, just before his 24th birthday. He signed up for the ielts training course, and when the case was over, he went abroad and left nanchang, a sad place, never to come back.
Five months later, he was doused in cold water. Police told him that qingshanhu district procuratorate made the decision not to approve arrest, that the evidence is insufficient, the facts are not clear. One of the controversies is the definition of morita therapy. “They don’t think the morita therapy used by yuzhang academy is a problem,” liu said. So he made more than 80 calls, found a morita committee member and submitted an explanatory note, trying to argue that morita therapy was only for the mentally ill and was voluntary. Obviously, these two points contradict their experiences in yuzhang academy.
The reason why yuzhang academy emerged and survived is that it catered to the needs of many parents with abnormal educational ideas.
