Teaching English in China - Rest Periods?

by John van Dulmen
(Chongqing, China)

I am working as an English teacher in China for 6 years now. I was interested in changing to another school in Chengdu (not the same province where I am teaching now) and they told me that teachers have a mandatory rest period of six months after 5 years of teaching. I have never heard of this before and neither has anybody else.

Is this just mis-information or is it true?

I've never heard of these. I'd be interested if any other teachers have come across this.
