A Marginalisation?

Source of info from International Times, 27th Sept 2006

I would like to share some information that I read recently from Kwang Wah Yit Poh and International Times, and am compiling the important points in English for the benefit of all readers.

  • From overall 9MP fund allocation for primary school, only a tiny 3.6% that goes to Chinese primary school and none of the 180 primary schools to be build is Chinese and Tamil school.
  • In year 1957, there are 310,000 Chinese student in 1333 Chinese schools and the number of Chinese student has increased to 636,000 in year 2006.
  • However, Chinese school was reduced significantly to 1288 Chinese schools, 45 less than the figure in 1957.

Malaysia ethnics ratio is Malay 50.4%, Chinese 23.7%, Indigenous 11%, Indian 7.1%, others 7.8% (2004 est. - source). 3.6% of fund allocation and 0/180 schools for 23.7% of Chinese population, while the number of Chinese schools is shrinking with increased Chinese students, can we consider this extend, a "marginalisation" or Chinese education's crisis?

You don't have to crack your brain and think hard to get an answer. Maybe someone is waiting for LKY to announce the stats or else, we should just shut-up and try to work out a solution for this very tough mathematical equation.
