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
Agreementamong 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.
