Deputy minister praises Fadhlina for defending vernacular schools

His deputy praised Minister of Education Fadhlina Sidek for defending the state of the country’s schools.

Wong Kah Woh said that under Fadhlina’s leadership, the ministry did not ignore the needs of Chinese and Tamil schools. “Malaysia now has an Education Minister who is not afraid to voice her support for public schools, both inside and outside Parliament.

“He is not afraid to say that the unity government will always protect and defend the status of local schools in Malaysia. There is no doubt about this, “he said at the Chinese education charity concert at Tiger Sin 2024 last night.

Wong also said that two new vernacular schools will soon start operations, with SJKC POAY CHAI to open its doors next month in Johor, while SJKC POT MIN in Selangor should start its first semester in September after receiving a certificate of completion and compliance. He said that Putrajaya is dedicated to improving national education as a whole, talking about the opening of five new schools so far this year, namely SK Saujana Putra and SMK Bandar Saujana Utama 2 in Selangor; SMK Serada in Terengganu; SM Sains Segamat in Johor; and SJKT Heawood in Perak.

In March, Fadhlina said the government had no plans to reform local schools and that the ministry would continue to enforce the 1996 education law, which recognized the use of Chinese and Tamil as the languages ​​of instruction in classrooms. Roland Bala, managing director of Heineken Malaysia Bhd, said he was impressed by the Chinese community’s emphasis on education.

“It is not surprising that the Chinese people are successful in every way,” he said at the event. Ten charity concerts will be held this year to raise RM15 million for eleven SJKCs. Since 1994,

the campaign has raised more than RM407 million and more than 540 schools have benefited.
