JOHOR BARU: MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong has suggested that the Education Ministry hire more non-Malays at all levels to assist the Government in tackling issues on education.

Such a move was good as some of the personnel from different races might not really grasp issues faced by vernacular schools and vice versa, he said.

“Right now there are not enough non-Malay education officers in the ministry to handle the issue, so there is bound to be problems that would be overlooked,” he said in his speech at the groundbreaking ceremony of the RM3.6mil multipurpose hall for SJKC Thai Hong in Taman Impian Emas here yesterday.

Dr Wee also said that the new MCA leadership would have a more humble approach in solving Chinese education issues by working together with school associations and school board members to find better ways to improve the system.

On Friday, Dr Wee reiterated MCA’s commitment to fight for Chinese education.

“MCA has played an important role in getting funds and allocations for Chinese schools. We have always been transparent about the money raised as well,” said the former Deputy Education Minister at a Gelang Patah MCA charity dinner to raise funds for Southern University College and Chong Hwa Kuantan Chinese Independent High School.

The dinner managed to raise RM50,000 for each of the two educational institutions.
