BEIJING, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Xueda Education Group (NYSE: XUE)
("Xueda" or the "Company"), a leading national provider of personalized
tutoring services for primary and secondary school students in China,
announced today that Mr. Xin Jin, its Chief Executive Officer and co-founder,
recently delivered a keynote speech at the signing ceremony of the
Self-Regulatory Agreement  among Private Tutoring Service Providers (the
"SRA"). The SRA was issued by The China Association for Non-Government
Education on February 28, 2013.

"I'm honored that the Ministry of Education had selected Xueda as the leader
and organizer for the signing of the private education industry's first ever
self-regulatory document," commented Mr. Jin, "The Ministry of Education has
re-emphasized its support for the development of private education and
encouraged private education institutions to voluntarily establish the SRA in
order to foster more orderly and sustainable development for our nascent and
fast-growing industry."

The SRA provides a framework of best practices and procedures that regulate
such areas as professional qualification, teaching quality, service, safety,
and cooperation. The SRA also encourages private education institutions to
take into consideration the policies and developments of the education
industry and students' individual needs in order to improve the overall
quality of the tutoring services.

"We believe the signing of the SRA by China's 17 leading private tutoring
service providers will help ease the recently heightened concerns over the
lack of industry standards for the private tutoring sector. This agreement
marks a new era where member institutions now have a comprehensive set of best
practices to better serve students.

Xueda is committed to exemplifying the SRA's best practices and to proactively
raising operating standards for the whole industry. We will continue to focus
on delivering the best services to our students and their parents," Mr. Jin
concluded.
