Just received news today that Global Language Centre, a chain of 3 schools in Jakarta has collapsed. The branch at Bekasi had 1600 students, the one at Gajah Mada had 1300 students and the one at Pejatan Village had over 1000.

They have closed all three branches and dozens of parents have launched a complaint with the police. Some of the parents have also brought lawyers into the malls demanding their money back. Some have paid up to $1000 up front and they will be lucky to ever see that again. The management of GLC, which was under the control of a charity called Yayasan Cerdas Bahasa, has gone missing, which doesn't bode well for students hoping for a refund. So far the story has only appeared in the Indonesian press such as Pos Kota news.

This is the second Indonesian language chain to have gone bankrupt within the past 2 months. The other one was Rumah Bahasa. The full story can be read here (for those who can read Indonesian).
