The Public Statementmaxileft
Paragon Education Co. Ltd.has read articles published on various media platforms regarding Paragon International School (Cambodia) and Paragon International University (Cambodia)(formerly known as Zaman). We assert that all claims and concerns reveal no evidence and solid background.
It is our statement that we categorically reject the validity of all accusations. We once again invite the “accusers” to prove their claims by sharing the evidence, if there is any, with us and competent authorities.
We would like to reassure all parents, students, and stakeholders that there should be no concerns regarding the statements that have been made by individuals who have no firsthand knowledge on our operation.
We wish to reiterate that Paragon Education Co. Ltd. decided to change the names of all our schools for the purposes of re-branding to instill new vigour and energy to the next stage of our schools’ progression. The name change has been discussed and positively supported during various meetingsinvolving students, parents, and stakeholders. Furthermore, it has been endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of Cambodia.
Despite the fact that the schools are going through a new stage of development, there will be no adverse changes in the high quality of leadership and education, given that Madam Chairwoman, SophakannyChea, has been involved with all Paragon schools, since 2006, occupying various positions through the years: landowner (2006), majority shareholder (2016), and sole owner (present).
We affirm our confidence in Madam Chairwoman’s leadership abilities, given the following accomplishments that have been made during her involvement with the schools since 2006:
- the school has been operating as a high-quality education institute for more than 20 years, with unquestionable dignity and honor,
- the institutions have never been involved indirectly or otherwise with any illegal or unlawful organization or group,
- the institutions have been and will continue to be routinely inspected by the relevant offices and departments,
- the institutions have always been recognized with success stories on national and international platforms,
- the institutions have repeatedly been acknowledged by the country officials as a result of their achievements.
Paragon Education Co. Ltd. would like to reiterate our commitment to providing the highest quality of education and services to students of all levels. We strive to equip our students with the skills and knowledge required to become responsible, mature, and global citizens in hopes of contributing to the development of the Kingdom of Cambodia. Paragon Education Co. Ltd. regrets that our educational institutions have been the subject of baseless discussion. The institutions under our company have always been and will continue to be in full compliance with national regulations and international standards. Unless any evidence is presented, all accusation is of no relevance.
