Seeking Compensation from Bing Bang Boom Bankruptcy

The Akahata Shimbun (Red Flag), a newspaper run by the Japan Communist Party, ran an article last Friday on Bing Bang Boom Club. Run by Aube Education System, the service which sent English teachers to children's homes recently went bankrupt with outstanding debts of over ¥800 million. It also owes over ¥110 million in wages to about 2,700 teachers. The article quotes several parents who are trying to organize to retrieve large sums of money paid in advance for tuition fees. ELT News ran a story on the bankruptcy on November 2, and there is a thread on the story on our message board.
