RACISM IN BROAD DAY LIGHT

26 01 2012

NOTE :

In their post, JUST READ! asked:-

“All Sekolah Kebangsaan, SRJK (Cina) and SRJK (Tamil) are government-aided schools. It belongs to the government, right?”

Kempen SSS would direct readers’ attention to the previous post titled “SEKOLAH HARAM” (CLICK)

Full article by JUST READ! is reproduced below.

 

SRJK (C) is not for Chinese only!

 

“I wanted to enroll my 7-year old daughter at a Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) in Ampang. I went to see the headmaster but upon seeing that my daughter wore a ‘tudung’, he asked me to send her to a Sekolah Kebangsaan.

“He said there is no place for a Malay student in a Chinese school, especially those with ‘tudung’,” he said, anguish and frustrated.

“He also said that Chinese schools are supposed to be for Chinese only.”

I am checking on the allegation.

However, the public general perception has always been stereotype – that whenever a non-Chinese pupil enrolls at any SRJK(C), his or her intention is to take up Mandarin and acquire Chinese knowledge.

This is actually wrong, totally not right. All Sekolah Kebangsaan, SRJK (Cina) and SRJK (Tamil) are government-aided schools. It belongs to the government, right? (see ‘NOTE’ above)

So, while all Sekolah Kebangsaan accepts non-Malay students, the Malays too deserve all rights to enroll at any SRJK(C) and SRJK(T), am I’m not right? These are all government schools. (?? see ‘NOTE’ above)

But why must there still be abrasive remarks about the system? I don’t want to call the headmaster ‘a racist’ for his attitude but it reflects more on the government’s hands-on policy on non-Sekolah Kebangsaan matters.

The Education Ministry, I believe, only ensures that the schools are under good management and with ample facilities but it fails to monitor the type of teachers being deployed. Whether its a Sekolah Kebangsaan, SRJK(C) or SRJK(T), the teachers, especially headmasters must be tuned to the fact that they are on the government’s payroll.

Most important is, the schools are open to all Malaysians, not for a single race.

And I am also of the opinion that the ‘Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua’ will be most practical to address such a situation.
