OBJECT compulsory Jawi Calligraphy lesson in vernacular school!
华淡小课程明年将添新单元，小四学生将学爪夷文书法。A new unit will be added into the syllabus of Primary 4 textbooks beginning next year; in which they need to learn Seni Khat or Jawi Calligraphy.我国副教育部长张念群说，爪夷文书法只是趣味教学的一环，目前没有考试，但未来就得靠大家相互监督。Our Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching said, the Jawi Calligraphy is only part of teaching, to make the learning process more interesting. There is no examination at present, but in the future, we must rely on ourselves mutual supervision.我们反对强制性将学习爪夷文书法纳入教育课程中。因为我们质疑这会否加重小学生的学习负担，且学爪夷文书法是否有经济价值？We oppose the compulsory teaching Jawi Calligraphy in vernacular school as part of the curriculum syllabus. As we feel it might increase the burden of primary school students, and whether it is economically valuable to learn Jawi Calligraphy, we should think twice about our priorities in education.那，你会否接受将爪夷文书法纳入多源流小学的教育课程中？Hence, will you accept compulsory teaching of Jawi Calligraphy in our vernacular school?若反对此政策，请与我们一起向中央政府，尤其是教育部传达我们人民的心声，要求中央政府，尤其是教育部撤回此政策！If you oppose this policy, please join us in conveying the voice of our people to the Federal Government, especially the Ministry of Education, and urge the authority to withdraw this policy!
