In the same month , Xueersi online school because of the existence of vulgar video 、 Abetting puppy love and other prominent problems , He was interviewed by Beijing online information office and local education authorities and ordered to rectify within a time limit .
In the case of China Consumer Association roll call , Online English Learning Institutions “ Akaso Foreign Teachers Network ” It is revealed that the teaching quality of foreign teachers is poor , late 、 It's not uncommon to play with mobile phones , And the teaching qualification certification is questionable .“ Dada English ” Accused of modifying course attributes without authorization , My major has shrunk to oral English .10 month ,“ Winning Education ” It was revealed that the headquarters was empty , There are many difficulties for parents to refund fees , Teachers' salaries are also in arrears .12 month ,“ Learning to be a tyrant ” Accused of mismanagement 、 Students apply for a refund 、 The teacher was dismissed , Many parents of students have no way to ask for help .

Juvenile online game recharge 、 It's hard to give a reward or refund
In recent years ,“ House economy ” Development is on the fast track . During the epidemic , Under the influence of objective factors such as epidemic prevention at home , Network game 、 Online entertainment such as webcast has become the first choice for many minors .
It is worth noting that , Minors reward network anchors without telling their parents 、 Recharge online game platforms and other related events appear in the newspapers from time to time , The amount of money involved is huge , Parents lose money without knowing it, but they have no way to ask for help . The case given by China Consumer Association shows that , “ Game for Peace ”“ Glory of Kings ”“ Tom and Jerry ”“ Happy and happy ” Waiting for mobile games APP as well as “ Fighting fish ”“ A live broadcast ” And so on APP Of “ Adolescent anti addiction system ” It's like nothing , porous .
In view of this kind of hidden danger ,5 month , The Supreme People's Court issued 《 Guiding opinions on novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in civil cases （ Two ）》 clear , A person with limited capacity for civil conduct without the consent of his guardian , Participate in paid online games or live online platforms “ Reward ” It depends on your age 、 Money that doesn't fit in with intelligence , The guardian requests the Internet service provider to return the money , The people's court shall support it . however , In many cases of minors' online consumption , There are still few parents who can get help from the police or the news media , Only a few people enter the judicial proceedings .
Public opinion holds that , Because of the cumbersome process 、 It's difficult to prove 、 The operation platform and game companies shirk responsibility for each other , Parents often face a lot of difficulties in refund and rights protection , It is difficult to protect the rights and interests of consumers . Protecting minors is the common responsibility of the whole society , This not only requires the relevant departments and enterprises to improve the refund mechanism , Improve the efficiency of handling refund disputes , We also need the guardians of minors to act on their own initiative , Shoulder the responsibility of guidance and discipline .
