董总杀关中有风使尽



     
关丹中华中学是以吉隆坡中华独中的双轨制模式申办,这是彻头彻尾的公开事实。按照董总惯用华教救亡的嘴炮,理应对新诞生的独中狂喜,但不知哪根筋扭伤了方向,主席叶新田和署理主席邹寿汉针对批文的基因找茬,把关中排挤为变种独中,并於上个月拒绝关中参与董总的统考,以掐死这“血统不纯”的独中。

董总与彭亨董联会主动向彭亨教育局寻求鉴定关中的地位,回函符合董总预期的答案和议程,即不准统考就失去了独中的身份,叶新田连忙为关中惊喜发丧。但数小时后,副首相兼教长慕尤丁下令撤回有关信件,想妄为小人也真不易为之。而引进小拿破仑入关干预办学的人,按照“出卖民族利益和通敌的败类” ,用词标为汉奸。

有些人也把兴办变种关中的人视为汉奸,因为与国内60间独中骨血不相称而败坏门风。华文独中在教学和行政媒介语文皆固守着华文,捍卫独中的特质,并以统考套住60所独中的传承。但是,随着各地独中从现实需求也报考政府的大马教育文凭,目前已有57董总名下的独中采用双轨制,那么,这种迎巫贯华的双轨办学方针,早就在关中之前已变种了。

其实,60所独中都属於教育部私立学校单位管辖。叶新田指关中不是独中,独中这个字眼只是政治方案下和历史延续的自号和识别,教育部只统称为私立学校,独中只是董总拥独自重的斗争武器。但这把匕首往关中死里捅,物伤其类,不算好汉。

这样吧,董总若有种,就发动各州董联会,用质询关中地位的标准信件,向各州的教育局长打探60间独中本身的底细,看看自己是私立学校还是独中,同时也问问可否参与统考,那就一目了然。

董总要教育部书面允准关中可参加统考才算数,政府至今还不承认统考文凭,叶新田似乎期求教育部降低智商去批准独中推行教部所不承认的考试。曾担任董总法律顾问的郭洙镇现身说法,马哈迪时代的政府允许举办统考并没有明文规定只适用於独中。他说,当年,董教总独中工委会是基於“法律不禁止的,就是允许” 的精神争取到统考。

换句话说,叶新田坚持关中的书面批准,一旦教育部等量齐观用於60间独中而严拒统考,犹如把颈项自套在绳索上,集体自杀。郭洙镇提点董总别站在政府前面,不断在禁止关中考统考的问题上纏斗。

就事实论理,董总若不把关中纳入同类,也应以推广、守护华教为前提予以关中方便,毕竟,关中是採用吉隆坡中华独中的轨道运作,与华教渊源一脉相通。如果否定了关中,其他独中该如何以同样的意识形态处置?

董总要为60所独中的堡垒把关,大可自筑围墙。但是,如果因应时局也让关中这新品种的独中有一席之地,也可以从关中踏出的第一步,以此新例在各州发展更多的独中,因为董总的60间独中数目已处在瓶颈,而且也不是所有的独中都办得风光。

教总主席王超群对董总双煞的作为公开挞伐,,认为关中的前途不是叶新田一个人可以乾纲独断,必须在独中工委会中研议。叶新田若不知从善如流让关中有统考的活路,关中无可选择地必须催生统考2.0自立门户,维系独中的特性。若与董总的固有统考冲撞而另树一帜,此举势必导致华教分裂,叶新田等人且莫有风使尽,还是自我掂量为重。

双煞的政治趋向很重要,如果不是有心人士在背后操纵一切,那就是脑袋进水了。双煞不走,统考文凭永远不会被承认!关中是双煞在这场拉锯战的棋子,双煞却是某些政党的棋子!

Idiot did you read the blog written by Botak ? Botak said we need the black and white to allow the Kuantan Independent students to sit for UEC , I am an old man and I remember on the 60s the MCA leadership went to the radio station and urged the Chinese secondary schools to be converted into the national type of secondary schools and promised that the schools would have 1/3 of subjects taught in Chinese. What happen today? 5 lessons per week and most of the time shortage of qualified teachers.

Old idiot,why don't u fight it that time? Just because of ur idiot, chinese in Malaysia will do nothing and fight for nothing! Now is 2014, not 60s old idiot!

Young idiot for your information I never voted for the earlier Alliance and later BN. Because so many idiots including you were cheated by UMNO and gave them 50 over years to govern. The idiot who wrote this article was all the time supporting BN especially MCA. Young idiot do you know that the Former MCA minister The late Lee Siok Yew openly to the Chinese community for MCA cheating the community. This idiot wants Dong Zong to let the Kuantan Independent Malay schools students to sit for UEC thus jeopardizing the true 60 schools.

Jacky Tai said...

Dear old idiot,I born in 70s, so in 60s is ur responsibility, not mine! And the worst MCA is in ur generation,not now, So do not judge by ur idiot IQ.
And also do not doubt my political, I'm malaccan, I support DAP since my parents age, after LGY and her pretty wife based on Kota Laksamana,everything are changed, I love my country, not the suck politic party!

And in this topic, I stand for Guan Zhong!

Dear previous Anonymous,

First of all, if we want other people to respect us Chinese, we ought to be gentlemen enough to debate in public discourses without resorting to names calling.

In my opinion, the crux of the matter is whether UEC is allowed under the law to be taken by students of Guan Zhong (which is what Dong Zhong is arguing isn't it?). If that's the case, Dong Zhong should show us which article under the Education Act (1961 and 1996) that specifically mentions "UEC can only be taken by Chinese Independent Schools". They didn't.

Dong Zhong also kept repeating that an Independent School is not the same as Private School. I also cannot see the difference here. A school is either government-sponsored or private-sponsored. You mean there's a third option (money falling from the sky)?

On hindsight, it'd seemed that MCA made a blunder in the 60s when converting the chinese schools. But the political condition and situation during those times are very different from now. Like what Jacky Tai is trying to point out, if we really wanted to pin the blame on someone, then we chinese should all be held liable for not fighting enough to keep the schools. For Kuantan, the chinese school was eventually converted to SMJK Tanah Putih because there was not enough financial donors.

When the UEC was first mooted, there were warnings to chinese schools not to proceed with taking the exam. The previous generation of chinese educationists proceeded nonetheless risking getting arrested which is the sole reason for the survivability of the UEC. They have fought hard and deserve our respect. And the reason? So that chinese education can continue to thrive, so that the next generation can continue to receive our mother-tongue education and so that many more chinese to come can be educated in our culture. Question now is, why has the current generation of Dong Zhong leaders not imitate their predecessors? Why are they trying so hard to LIMIT the expansion of chinese education instead of making it more accessible (by having one in Kuantan)? Why are they going into reverse gear now?

The term "Independent School" in itself is a legacy of a bygone (British) era. The world is moving at a much faster pace now. It is time for us to move forward.

你好,我是來自怡保的星洲讀者
Goodday, I am a SinChew reader from Ipoh.

This is abstracted from Malaysia Education Act 1996:

Prohibitions on the conduct of examinations
69. (1) Subject to subsection (4), no person or educational institution
shall conduct, permit or cause to be held or conducted, or be in
any manner concerned in the holding or conducting of, any
examination for any pupil of an educational institution or for any
private candidate without the prior written approval of the Director
of Examinations.

This is readily downloadable on internet as long as you search it in google.

p/s: I am just age23, please forgive me if I do not interpret the law clauses correctly. Perhaps we all show refer to law advocates rather than just talk cock

if you are willing to discuss this further, feel free to contact me by Chinese or English.

我不明白為什麼這個議題會和政黨聯繫上。

我是這麼看的:

一個販賣菸酒的商人需要准證來合法地做生意。否則將被視為走私。

董總既然提出了教育法令的限制,我們何不請政府作出解釋,或者至少在公共發表議論前,諮詢一下律師朋友?

這不才是真正解決問題之道嗎?


I do not understand why this topic has downed to political party issues.

This is how I see it:

You need a lesen (permit) to sell certain goods such as cigarattes and spirits.

If you sellig these without consent of authorities, you are being accused of smuggling.

If the private exam is regulated like DongZhong said, it is understandable to clarify this issue, i.e. ask the government to clarify it, or at least consult law interpreter.

It is the real way to rebate or pushing the issue forwards.

I am also no legal expert so let's hear it from the former Dong Zhong law consultant Kua Zhu Zhen himself:

Shawn,

The government has already clarified it including the Prime Minister and Education Minister. Read here:

On why is the topic now down to a political party issue... Chinese education is always connected to politics in Malaysia since time immemorial. Why? Because the Chinese hold their education in a very important position in their lives. Eventually the politicians will want to leverage on issues arising from it.

It wouldn't have been so messy if people do not take sides. That's why there's a saying 帮理不帮亲 - only by applying this can we really understand the situation without prejudice. For instance, nowadays (especially the younger ones), everything done by the government is suspicious and everything by the opposition must be good. It's not that I support any political party (I am considered a "fence-sitter") but I think we ought to be more moderate and rational in discussing issues and finding a solution.

There is always a common ground, but in this case it'd seemed that Dong Zhong do not want to go there.
Five thousand years of civilisation will not benefit us if we do not apply the philosophies taught by our ancestors.

Their (PM & EM) support are most welcomed. However Edu Act 1996 Stated 69.5 stated that the offender (providing private examination) will face fine and jail for a year.

Does these statement from PM&EM protect Dong Zhong from being charged of law violation?

One can simply use a similar analogy:

Do you manufacture you goods without PO (Purschase Order?)

On a lighter note,

The establishment of the school was approved by the federal government and deciding the fate of the school based only on an official letter from the state's education department alone has reflected the "little Napoleon" syndrome afflicting Chinese education. It was indeed not a wise move to seek verification from the state education department instead of the Education Ministry.

其實我們華團動不動就標籤人家小拿破崙,是不是我們不對的地方?如果他們是按照教育法令來行事,換作是你我,在彭亨州教育局工作,雖然知道不對,會不會作同樣的選擇?

We labeled Pahang State Education Department as Little Napoleon, but what if they just execute according to regulation.

If it is you or me who happened to write the response (declined UEC exam for SM), wouldn't you or me do the same?

(2) 处理问题的各方应该以解决问题作为出发点,寻求各方可以接受又不违反法令的方案,包括採取迂迴的做法,重点是解决问题,而不是迴避问题。

Some guys asking to use a twisted turns to avoid legal issues. I believe even twisted turns we need black and white to protect ourself. It is just simple common sense.

This is a statement from our Education Minister

副总理兼教育部长慕尤丁稍早前以受到法令限制为理由,一直拒绝华社希望在东海岸的关丹增建华文独立中学的要求,结果引起华社的不满和质疑政府缺乏解决华教问题的诚意。经过一个月的争论之后,副总理慕尤丁日前突然宣布,内阁原则上同意兴建华文独立中学,但是他强调,增建华校不能抵触国家教育政策和相关法令。

The last sentence calimed that, the new chinese school cannot demur with National Educatio Act and relevant regulations.

I don't really agree with the cari lubang method. For Malaysia to become a better place, we need to improve the laws and regulations.

It is the abrogation of Slavery Act that makes US the strongest nation in the world.

Hi again Shawn,

You mean the former Dong Zhong law consultant Kua Zhu Zhen is wrong then?

You should tell him that.

And I don't think you really understand the meaning of the phrase "common ground". It is not synonymous with "cari lubang" you know.

"Their (PM & EM) support are most welcomed. However Edu Act 1996 Stated 69.5 stated that the offender (providing private examination) will face fine and jail for a year"

The chinese educationists already faced jail terms when they first organised UEC. And yet they took their chances and the rest is history. Chinese educationists always knew that we have to struggle to develop mother-tongue education, it is never given to us on a silver platter.

Question is, if they can do it when the then PM said they couldn't, why can't we do it now when the current PM said we can?

I am not actually disappointed with who said what, but rather hurt by why all of us cannot unite to resolve a common issue. Unity is what gets us to where we are today.

"You mean the former Dong Zhong law consultant Kua Zhu Zhen is wrong then?"

Do Mr. Kua Zhu Zhen protect anybody from being charged then?

Also, if you happened to have his contact. Please let me know. I wish to seek advise for him too.

Shawn said...

"And I don't think you really understand the meaning of the phrase "common ground". It is not synonymous with "cari lubang" you know."

So what is the common ground to drive this issue forward?

Shawn said...

"Question is, if they can do it when the then PM said they couldn't, why can't we do it now when the current PM said we can?"

首相說的並沒有約束力 (說說而已,還是有指令傳達到下屬)?
It is very simple, PM can change.
首相也會更換,這是法治國家並不是封建人治國家
PM can also retract his word.
Unless it is written into law.

When his low rank officer executing certain thing. When conflict. His officer should obey law or obey PM sayings?

和你開的公司一樣,下屬們跟procedure走,除非是chinaman公司,早三暮四。

“The chinese educationists already faced jail terms when they first organised UEC. And yet they took their chances and the rest is history. Chinese educationists always knew that we have to struggle to develop mother-tongue education, it is never given to us on a silver platter.”

A&B both support the issue, A jailed and B lucky to get away in early day. Now A is por and B is a successful businessman, exuding power and wealth. Now B wonder why A do not dare to do it again (to protest, to rebel, to go jail again).

Question is, in what moral high ground B can ask somebody to do this?

Ask Dong Zhong. He used to be their legal advisor.


"So what is the common ground to drive this issue forward?"

If it's too difficult to understand, use this word instead- "UNITY".


"His officer should obey law or obey PM sayings?"

I hope you are not insinuating that the current Prime Minister of Malaysia does not know the law.



"PM can also retract his word.
Unless it is written into law."

The law can also be changed to eliminate mother-tongue education.


"A&B both support the issue, A jailed and B lucky to get away in early day. Now A is por and B is a successful businessman, exuding power and wealth. Now B wonder why A do not dare to do it again (to protest, to rebel, to go jail again).

Again, you are insinuating someone. Just let it out, who is A and who is B?

Why he is not anymore?

What kind of unity can drive this issue forward?


"I hope you are not insinuating that the current Prime Minister of Malaysia does not know the law."

I urged them and parliaments to write their findings into law.

"The law can also be changed to eliminate mother-tongue education."

Exactly, I watched a bunches of the debates in parliament that constitute new laws and improve old laws. I found that, most of the time, the debate clings into awfully twisted logics.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBGQADED_Mw

The worry comes to me that, the people that are able to disccuss issue like you (not saying right or wrong), put your views in local newspapers, or pasar-pasar, activities speech, but not laws constitution unit, does not help to drive the issue forward. We should discuss those in parliament and with Minister of Education.


"Again, you are insinuating someone. Just let it out, who is A and who is B?"

This is a reply to anonymous. There are too many anonymous. If you are not him, please read the comment above.

I think this comment is very unfair to Mr Kua.
People like Tan Sri Khalid is also no longer the MB but I still have great respect and admiration for what he'd done for the state.

关中的署理董事长对记者说教长应当出一封准考统考公函,这样说合理。可是关中的董事长一天到晚在骂,那一小撮人怎样怎样,问一下80000个正版独中家长们,80000乘以2,他们同不同意?不是有钱人说了算,平民百姓也看明白了。我是来自古晋的独中生家长,我就支持董总。黑字白纸才是保障,这是活在这个时代的人的想法。60所独中已经是公民,关中是永久居民,这是份别。
