Okay, I guess that should put an end to the ongoing debate about the Chinese schools.
The Chinese community should not worry anymore about the BN government closing down their schools.
Hopefully they will support BN in the next general election, three years from now.
Maybe the Dong Zhong gang will from now on be more pro-establishment.
Meanwhile, all those Umno people who are planning to make noise about the Chinese schools at their general assembly next month should just shut up, okay.
As KJ said, the debate is over.
Okay, I know, most of you who read up till this point must be sniggering by now.
Annie is being full of shit again, you probably think.
well, I don't blame you all for thinking like that.
Honestly, I don't really believe in what I wrote above.
I simply wrote those to irritate you people....hahahaha.
Still, personally, I don't mind for the Chinese schools to continue the way they are.
I don't believe that closing down the Chinese schools will help in bringing back support of the Chinese community to BN.
All those years when they supported BN, the Chinese schools were already there.
Remember the 1999 general election at the height of Anwar Ibrahim's Reformasi movement where only about 37 per cent of the Malays voted for BN?
It was the Chinese votes which saved BN.
The then PM at that time, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad didn't close down the Chinese schools, right?
For me, the Umno guys need to think harder than just resorting to not so bright move such as wanting to close down the Chinese schools to win back support from the community.
After all, those banana evangelical Chinese who control DAP now are mostly not Chinese educated.
If the argument is about instilling unity between the races, I don't think a single school system necessarily should be the only or the all important solution.
I rather believe in instilling good values among the children irrespective of which schools they attended.
Not all kids from Chinese schools turned out to be racists when they grow up. Similarly, not all kids from national schools turned out like that too.
There should be a better way to educate our children to prevent them from turning into racists without having to close down schools and such.
Maybe there should be a program where interactions between kids from vernacular and national schools could be encouraged.
I believe that if the children have good education and become good people they will not become racists.
