What’s Coming This Spring of 2017? Another Fake “Dr” and Other Leaks

Well Christopher John Carter was “dishonorably” removed just days after we went public with the evidence about his credentials back in December.  In characteristic fashion, the school back-dated the notice to read that he was removed prior to our posting.  Do you really believe that?

More interestingly still, we have been given no information, no statement, no admission of wrongdoing, no admission of guilt, no apologies – NOTHING.  If you were negatively affected by Christopher John Carter’s actions while he was acting in a role he was completely unqualified for, please contact us.

We are seeking legal options at this time both in China and in other nations.  We have all of his actual information in terms of identification and some of us will be seeking damages for the harm he has done to our reputations.

We will also pursue every available avenue for making the school liable for its willful negligence in this case since we know that Mr. Jeffrey Nigel Shaw and Nelson Li knew about Mr. Christopher John Carter at the end of March 2016 and somehow covered it up with no intention of ever taking disciplinary action.

We have been conversing with another person who appears to also have a fake doctorate.  Once again, we have a plethora of evidence.  Once again, we have given many chances and lots of time for this person to leave China.  This time however, this person has decided to actually listen to our requests for evidence.  This person claims that these credentials are fully legitimate, despite the evidence we have that they are definitely not legitimate.

I hope this person will simply not return to China.  Calling out people that the school does not perform it’s due-diligence on is a task that brings us no joy whatsoever.  There remains a 0.1% chance that we missed something, that this person is innocent…but if this person does not comply with our requests, there will be no choice but to go with the 99.9% odds that we are correct because it would be unfair for us to take action against Christopher John Carter and ignore her/him.

However, if s/he leaves China s/he can no longer hurt the school or it’s reputation or anymore students or people under him/her.  In this case, we will not release the information for any reason because we are not doing this to hurt people’s reputations permanently.  We are doing this to stop unethical behavior at BGY since the higher-ups and FAO are completely incompetent.

What is it about faking degrees that makes people go for the PhD?  I would just go for something that’s not noticeable like a Bachelor’s or a Master’s.  A leadership position necessitates that you will make enemies.  Why not have the foresight to avoid that by going “smaller” with the fake degree so you will be unnoticed?

Coming soon:  Learn the truth about Principal Andrew Li’s educational philosophies!  We have a recorded speech where he threatens teachers that they will be fired if they do not cause IB Diploma Programme scores to rise in their classrooms continuously.  Real teachers know this is not a sound educational practice.  It is unethical to tell teachers that they will be fired if their students do not achieve higher test scores.  Talk about the inverse of performance-based pay with a huge-ass stick!

After that, we will all get to see exactly how Mr. Jeffrey Nigel Shaw lies, distorts, bullies, threatens, and demeans teachers and their entire families into quitting the school!  We have heard detailed recordings of meetings with Mr. Jeffrey Nigel Shaw and it is very disconcerting to see a “professional” utilize mob tactics like that.  I suppose that anyone who has known Jeff over the past two years shouldn’t be surprised though.  Remember Mr. Shaw’s paranoid rantings last year about one teacher who simply photographed him out in public?  He went on for NEARLY AN HOUR about that guy in front of the WHOLE SCHOOL!  Remember when he accused a member of staff for being responsible for spreading nude photos of a coworker through staff email?  EVERYBODY knew it was the poor teacher’s (ex) husband and not a member of staff (except for Jeff apparently).  Remember how many times Jeff worked hard to convince the staff that people wanted to destroy him?  It appears that his paranoia will eventually cause a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Well all of those things are nothing compared to the recordings we have showing his actual condescending and unprofessional behavior in private meetings – it’s chilling and shocking.  It’s the stuff of lawsuits and being escorted out by security guards in the developed world.  Very soon you can be sure to hear it all including the written transcripts!  Too bad Robert won’t do the right thing and come to us.  He knows that Jeff is bad news for the school.  Let us hope that Robert redeems himself before he is implicated in breaking laws and rules too.  We all remember a time when Robert could almost be trusted to help teachers.

Jeff Shaw is right about one thing that he keeps bringing up:  we DO need to clean up the trash at Guangdong Country Garden School.  Unfortunately the school will never flourish until we do this.  It’s unfortunate that under such fearful and unimaginative leadership they continue to view that trash as teachers.  The “trash” has consistently been the leadership at CGS.  In fact you will learn soon how this “Leadership Team” took one man’s career and completely and willfully destroyed it because of their suspicions and paranoia.

David Li?  What of his racist comments about black people?  We have sources who have told us about the meeting they were in with him when he directly said this.  It’s unthinkable for the Principal of such a large organization to act so unprofessionally.

And what of FAO?  We have evidence of the lies Elvia has fed to teachers for YEARS.  Now Nelson has been doing the same thing.  We have a whistle-blower who has recorded interactions with Nelson in a private meeting where Nelson has ADMITTED that the school will not pay monies that it is obligated to pay to an employee under contract.  FAO has screwed hundreds of employees for many, many years with unscrupulous tactics and techniques.  Do not forget about teachers fined ENTIRE PAYCHECKS for missing 3-4 days of work for a family emergency.

We know of Robert’s incompetence too.  He is guilty of willfully doing nothing about everything forever.  He was chosen BECAUSE he will do nothing and because he is compliant to the status quo.  Robert is a tool of the system.  He is not somebody that will protect you in the majority of cases.  Rather he is one who will gather intelligence and wait to be called into one of Jeff’s meetings.

Do not wait for them to get rid of you too.  CGS does not reward hard work.  They will use you and we must share all this evidence with all of you so that you can see why we need to formulate real plans to get rid of bad leaders and fix the school.

Lives are being affected every day.  If you are a real teacher – no….if you are a HUMAN BEING you should care about this and stand up with us to fight against these wrongdoings.  BGY can be a caring place again.  It will never be under the same system it has always used.  BGY became “famous” because it was the first.  It offered something that no other school in China offered.  The Country Garden Group refuses to update with the 21st Century.  Cultural Revolution era thinking continues to dominate and permeate through all levels of leadership (and we all know there are MANY LEVELS).  Let’s not forget who remains affected by all of this ultimately.  It is kids.  Kids who want a future.  Kids who need proper guidance and preparation before they go abroad.  They will not get prepared properly under this system that remains inflexible and impervious to the outside world and market forces.  Please continue to share your stories with us!  Be brave and do not fear these scared leaders.  They remain silent which is why I know they are afraid.

To you paranoid and scared leaders:  stop being afraid.  Reach out to us and work with us.  Post on this site.  Be open and transparent.  Be bold and CHANGE.  You hold the fate of BGY in your hands with how you continue to choose to fail.

  1. Thank You! A wumao just posted a positive review on International School Reviews about cgs. I believe it was Robert Carlyon or Jeff Shaw again.

  2. This just in. As we all know, the new semester started three days ago in China and (according to a friend of mine who got this from a friend of his) a “BGY job” group popped up tonight on Wechat, around 30 people were added to it already, both with and without prior working experience at the school. Sounds like they are getting desperate for teachers, your persistence is paying, keep up the good work.

      1. I just read this on another board.

        Dishonest Guangdong Country Garden School,Foshan Guangdong,bgy,PRC
        The old boy lackey principle,has a fake Dr.degree as well, and soon to be exposed…..stay tuned.

        I assume that is Jeff Shaw?

        1. Guangdong Country Garden School has a scamming sister Country Garden Silver Beach School Renshan town by: Dr.Gwen

          I did i stint at this school,everything was brand spanking new, the school, the apartment, heck the town. Discovered that this is a new Chinese beach resort town, and affiliated with Guangdong Country Garden School,in Foshan,bgy PRC.It has only been around 3 years but has a very high teacher turn over, most teachers leaving before mid-contract or being outright fired.

          Another Problem with the school and there are several,including late pay and why there is such a turnover of teachers is it is out in the middle of nowhere, to get to the east side of Shenzhen it’s a 90 minute bus ride. The only foreigners in the town are the teachers, talk about living in a fishbowl. Teachers spend every weekend going to Shenzhen. Yeah it pays more than other places like EF and Disney English, but you blow it going to Shenzhen every weekend to have some sort of life and that includes groceries a fast food fix or anything resembling decent health care.

          Nice job if you are into solitude and want to live like a monk, I’m not sad to say.I did my liver a favor, packed my bags, and left that rat infested 1 horse ghost town. 😀

        2. No, Florence, I am Jeff Shaw and I am not a fake at all. Enjoy your fantasising but just remember that your good name could also be attacked and put on the permanent internet record unjustly by these anonymous people.

          1. Mr. Shaw, unlike the media you control (everything) we will allow your opinion to be spoken freely here. We do not seek to crush dissenting opinions and we do not attack “good” names. You know that you’ve been knee-deep in the shit.

            Nonetheless Florence, Mr. Shaw is correct that we have no reason to suspect that he is a fake Principal or Doctorate – and nothing has been submitted to us suggesting such things at this time. The other individual with fake credentials is another person. We have been conducting an investigation with the occasional cooperation of that suspected individual and have not released any information relating to that investigation publicly. This is still an issue being deliberated within our community.

            The purpose of this website is not to expose corrupt people or endanger reputations unjustly, it is to serve as a check to unrestricted power that is used against unsuspecting and naive people.

            We do not take this responsibility lightly. This is in stark contrast to current leadership that throw away individuals and treat teachers like commodities that are easily replaceable.

            Sorry Mr. Shaw but justice will prevail this time. Not propaganda. You cannot run to another school to escape the wrongdoings you have committed. We will expose all of them in time. So please do keep this in mind as you plan your move to another major metropolitan Chinese city. Your best chance at fixing this problem would be to honestly engage with the community here and to begin apologizing to the individuals you have effected with your unjust and unilateral abuses of power. Only then can you expect some degree of compassion.

            Sorry Mr. Shaw but this is 2017 and those who are not transparent and trustworthy will fail.

  3. Good luck to you Mr. Shaw and much success to you and the new school and city you relocate to.
    Just remember, like other leaders of evil and wrong doings, you can run but you cannot hide.
    We will find you Jeffrey and expose you to the proper local and international authorities.

      1. I believe he put up with a load of rubbish including the silliest of unsubstantiated allegations from the naive, inexperienced and unqualified gang of people who are too chicken to put their own names forward, and cleared off. Why you lot blamed him for so many of your own problems and also those caused by the useless local Chinese leadership, god only knows – easy target? Yes, ma’am.

    1. What are you, a gangster? Expose how, exactly? All the stories here are about his rant about a teacher (not an ex teacher as someone said) taking a photo of him having a drink out of work hours and trying to make out he was a “bad influence” on the students. But I suppose you didn’t know that and just thought it was any old photo? Would any of you be happy with someone taking a photo of you out of work hours and try to cause a stir? Have a bit of empathy. Again, what evidence of anything do all of you have anyway? All of you are merely imagining things because you want there to be something so badly.

      On another note, there is nothing said about the good things Jeff Shaw has done for this school??? Maybe cause you don’t know or don’t care and are only interested in dragging names through the mud. If any of you had any idea what it’s like working in leadership in a school like this, then you wouldn’t be chatting so much shit about people who can only do their best listening to said teachers. Sadly, you don’t have that experience.

      The only things many international teachers seem to know how to do is come to where they can get new young chinese wives, how to get away with not teaching anything in classes and therefore ruining the students’ education (which you all apparently care for), and how to team up to save each other’s backs when you get investigated for having false qualifications.

      Interestingly, the school is full of incredibly well off kids whose parents constantly interfere with how the school should teach their children. How would you international teachers deal with that, hey?

      Get real and get a job somewhere else, I guess, and stop threatening people you’ll forget about soon enough.

  4. I read this on another board.

    Not sure if I can add anything to what has already been said on the the teachers boards.

    There are some exaggerations, about this being an actual school.

    The workload is alright but you have to wing your classes since they have no resources

    or books,the hours are long and include silly evening meetings.

    You will be resented by the local teachers, including (especially) the administration including

    Mr Mo Tiejun with the personality of Hitler.

    Any previous experience and expertise will not do you any good here, since the students do not

    speak English and are waiting for dancing monkey show.

    The most important skill is giving face to the local teachers, kids, and their parents.

    That means fake assessments, pretending to be IB, and taking orders from people who really

    shouldn’t be allowed to work in schools and are better suited as rude taxi drivers, or cabinet
    makers,or house painters.

    You will be asked to put on dancing monkey show on Monday mornings in front of the whole school, while the students point and laugh at you.

    However, after reading all the bad reviews, on this backwards, backpacker, factory, dancing monkey school you did do it to yourself.

    If you enjoy working at a 3rd tier training center, or in an old fashioned, badly run Chinese company you might like it at BGY.

    If not, Country Garden School will make you lose your self respect as a teacher and a human being, and probably make you a depressed fall down drunk.

    I loathed going to work every day. Many people develop a drinking and drug addiction problem here.

    Many people do runners after they become suicidal, but I lost 5 kilos over time doing the dancing monkey show.

  5. Filthiest and most rubbish “international” school ever exist in China. Also you should warn people to watch out for the Elan training center just outside the community near KFC. It also belongs to BGY and works together hand in hand with CGS to rip off students even more. Nasty nasty people working there. The manager Renee has no clue about education and she is a fake as can ever be, smile in your face and stabs you in the back. There is this slob of an expat John working there and who lives in the community with his Thai wife. Their curriculum is the same joke as CGS and the center mainly exists to feed off CGS students, milking them twice for the same thing. Do not work there, the center looks fancy but it’s a crap place.

    1. Agreed!!! We went there for the opening demo with our daughter,,, what a JOKE!
      Turns out my wife asked the boss, Renee who owns it, and she said that the schools CEO owns it!!
      WTF? Double-dipp action over there, and borrowing teachers as well. the guy over there, might be named Nathan or Daniel , mentioned that he was there for display only, due to his hours were low over at the school.

  6. JAMES WU IS FULLY RESPONSIBLE, together with FAO office – a lass called CARINA and the vice principal NELSON…… CONTINUES TO EMPLOY TEACHERS ON F OR L VISA. YOU’RE WORKING ILLEGALLY. THE SCHOOL IS IN BIG…….. THE CONTRACT IS NOTHING!! Run, run, run….. or demand full payment as it is not legal in the first place and therefore cannot enforce the contract. What you can do is ask for full payment or blow the whistle!
