The penmanship education in Chong Jin was so called ' private education", which was nothing to do with the government. All the budget of the association was coming from the students. However, the tuition was much less than the other penmanship classes. For other penmanship class, you hand in the tuition, but, the ink, the papers, the pen and the labels should be prepared by yourself.
