Muhyiddin unfair on Chinese middle school


The statement made by the Deputy Prime Minister cum Minister of Education Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin during the recent courtesy visit by the Chinese educationists for not giving any more future allocation to the Chinese middle school and not recognizing any of their Unify School Certificates(USC), came with heavy protest from the Chinese community in the whole of Malaysia.

Dr. Hiew regrets to learn from the decision given by the government to the Chinese middle schools, that doomed the future for better facilities for the school, and career prospect for the Unify School Certificate holders since it is again not recognized by the government. Muhyiddin gave the reasons because the Chinese middle school education did not comply with the national education policy.

The decision is total against the Prime minister’s concept and slogan of “1-Malaysia”. This again demonstrated and repeated the unfairness to Chinese education in Malaysia. On one hand he says equal, and on the other hand he shut the face on the Chinese community on rejecting their basic right. How an earth he is going to achieve 1-Malaysia?

Dr. Hiew said that in Malaysia, the Chinese middle schools from the beginning had never been recommended, recognized, and supported by the Government. Therefore, we have to struggle to find ways to set up our own private little institution to provide Chinese middle school education to our young generation who prefer Chinese education. Through the number of years, these private middle schools had developed and grown from the very little schools to the super size middle schools in Malaysia, no thanks to the government. They are among the best middle schools in the country, producing top grade students, acceptable and recognized by international university. Many of them are also being granted and given by overseas universities with excellent scholarship awards due to their super grades in their examinations both in SPM, STPM, and USC. They later contributed much of the progress and development in Malaysia. The supreme performance of the examination result cannot be challenged by any SMK result.

The Chinese middle schools in the country helped the government in many ways in term of producing good citizens, specialist, scientist, engineers, doctors, and many others, and not forgetting many of the BN politicians and supporters. With own cost, mostly public donations, the schools had helped the government in many ways, and saved money for the government. The government should be grateful and should seek ways to assist. To shut the door and slap the face of the Chinese middle school is the last thing the BN should do.

It is discriminating not to provide fund to them and not to recognize the USC, tell us how to achieve ‘1-Malaysia’?

慕尤丁对独中极不公平
针对副首相兼教育部长丹斯里慕尤丁向前往拜会他以董教总为首的七个华团代表时这样表示说,政府在将来不会再有任何资助给华文独中及也将不承认任何的华文独中统考证书。 这带给整个马来西亚的华裔社会一个很大的打击和引致高度的不满。

邱博士感到非常遗憾当他获悉政府对独中有如此的决定,这注定以后就算独中生有优越的统考证书,却不被政府所承认也影响到该些学生进入国立大学的机会。 慕尤丁所给的原因是独中并不符合国家教育政策所规定的各项条件,所以政府不能承认这项文凭。

这项的决定是完全推翻了首相纳吉的“一个马来西亚”概念和口号。 政府又再次展示他们对华文教育的不公平对待, 一方面高呼平等,另一方面却对华人社群施压,拒绝他们的基本权利。 请解释如何去实现他所谓的“一个马来西亚”?

邱博士说,从以前至今,政府对华文独中都不曾给予认同或支持。 因此,我们必须设法并建立独立华文中学,让我们年轻的下一代有机会接受华文中学教育。 经过多年的辛劳及没有任何政府的资助,这些由华社支撑的独中在马来西亚已经发扬光大,也发展成为大规模的学校。 目前我国的独中都是非常优秀的,学生的品德及学业均有优异的表现,其独中统考证书更为国际大学所承认和接受。 许多独中生在他们的考试如政府高中考试, 大学预科考试及独中统考都有很优异的成绩,海外大学都乐意接纳他们的申请进入就读并颁予奖学金。 学成之后他们都对国家作出了很大的贡献,促使进步和发展。这些独中优异成绩是国中不能取得的。

我国的独中已造就了许多良好公民,专家,科学家,工程师和医生等等的人才,包括国阵里的部长议员们。 独中的资源,主要是来至公众捐款,学校已经帮助了政府培育许多人才的工作,而没有利用到政府的资源。 政府应该感谢他们,也应该设法协助独中。 政府不但没有给予协助反而要关上大门,难道这就是国阵政府的作风吗?
不资助独中不承认统考,这就是歧视华社,‘一个马来西亚’又如何能成立呢? 让我们以手中的一票在下届大选时教训国阵!
