DAP Sarawak chief Chong Chieng Jen wants the state government to determine its own education curriculum, saying that the current system is peppered with an ‘Umno agenda’. – The Malaysian Insider file pic, December 9, 2014.
The Sarawak government must reclaim its autonomy on education, said Sarawak DAP, as the current system is peppered with an “Umno agenda” designed to produce racists and extremists.
DAP Sarawak chief Chong Chieng Jen today said at his office in Kuching: “It’s filled with Umno's political indoctrination like 'ketuanan Melayu' (Malay supremacy).
There's a glaring omission on the history of Sarawak and the formation of Malaysia.
“We need to decide on our education. All these (Umno) elements will continue to be in our school text books (if Sarawak does not regain the autonomy).
