Teachers are docking 10 yuan for wrong answers in class; and a total of 5 yuan for littering.
If a student fails a subject in the final exam, the whole amount is forfeited.
The school’s Vice-president Zheng Qiang denied having knowledge of the fines. He said that his administration was unaware of the policy and vehemently condemned teachers for imposing such illegal cash fines on students.
Chinese Business View reported that students have called the policy “robbery”.
The Vice Principal said the school management is investigating if students actually pay fines for failing exams.
