教育领域
1:过去两年来,政府都连续拨款资助国内所有独中,即2019年的1200万令吉以及今年的1500万令吉,希望政府在明年度财政预算案中,同样为独中带来制度化拨款,并希望能够增加有关的幅度。
2:政府过去也一连两年拨款给3所华社民办大专院校,即南方大学学院、新纪元大学学院以及韩江大学学院(每所200万令吉),希望来年也能够拨款资助。
3:政府也必须确保华小与国民型中学,继续获得制度化与合理的拨款。
4:华小的迁校和增建计划必须根据华裔人口和华社整体需要继续落实,政府也必须准备所需的迁校、建校及软硬体设备拨款,确保水到渠成。
5:行管令期间展开的网线教学和电子教务计划,突出了国内一些乡区网络设备,包括速度和涵盖率无法应付需求的弱点,也显示出国家朝向线上教育所面对的技术与设备阻力,甚至教职员的培训在内,都必须获得加强与提升,这方面,政府应增加拨款从速推行和改善。
6:在行管令实施,以及线上教学期间,政府大学应该继续下调学费和杂费等,同时鼓励私人大专院校采取相应措施,协助减轻人民或家长在疫情打击后所面对的经济负担。
7:进一步放宽高等教育基金的申请(家庭收入)条件,让更多中低阶层家庭子弟申请获全额的贷款,协助彼等完成大专教育。
8:除了延长暂缓摊还高等教育基金贷款,政府也应考虑恢复过去为一次性、或在短期内缴清贷款的毕业生提供最高20%(或提供更高)的折扣优待,以鼓励有能力的毕业生还贷。

Education

  1. In the past two years, the government had given grants to all Chinese independent secondary schools in the country i.e. 12 million in 2019 and 15 million for this year. It is hoped that the government through the Budget 2021 could institutionalize allocation of such grants, besides increasing the amount.
  2. It is also hoped that the government could continue to provide grants to the three Chinese community run university colleges, namely the Southern University College, New Era University College, and Han Chiang University College which received a grant of RM200,000 each, in the last two years.
  3. Government should also institutionalize allocation of a reasonable amount of grants for all Chinese primary schools and national-type secondary schools.
  4. Government to provide sufficient funding for Chinese primary schools which are in need of expansion or relocation, in accordance to the size of the local Chinese community, and their needs.
  5. Government to allocate more funds and to ram up efforts to improve internet broadband access and speed, especially in the rural and suburban areas, besides providing necessary training to the teachers. This is in order to boost the capacity and efficiency of distant learning programs initiated by the Ministry of Education, which has now become essential for the teachers and students, under the ‘new norm’.
  6. During this extraordinary challenging period of Movement Control Orders (MCO) of various categories, where studies are being conducted online, the government should further reduce the tuition fees and miscellaneous fees of public universities, besides encouraging private colleges to also do the same, so as to help ease financial burden of parents, especially those who are adversely affected by the pandemic.
  7. Government to relax the household income threshold for the application of higher education grants, so as to enable more students from medium-and-low income families to pursue their higher education.
  8. Besides extending the moratorium on repayment of National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) loans to December, the government should also consider reintroducing the attractive discount of 20%, or more, in order to encourage students who can afford to settle their study loan in one single payment, to come forward.
