A group of civic organizations yesterday petitioned the Control Yuan to impeach Minister of
Education Wu Se-hwa (吳思華) over what they said was the illegal implementation of a set of controversial adjustments to high-school curriculum guidelines made by the Ministry of Education.
The National Academy for Education president Ko Hwa-wei (柯華葳) was also listed on the petition, because the academy went outside of its jurisdiction by issuing official documents to textbook publishers to prohibit sales of textbooks based on the old curriculum — an act not authorized by any law, lawyer Huang Di-ying (黃帝穎) said.
Other petitioners included Northern Taiwan Society chairman Chang Yeh-sen (張葉森), Restoration of Taiwan Social Justice founder Lin Yu-lun (林于倫), Humanist Education Foundation executive director Joanna Feng (馮喬蘭) and Taiwan Association of University Professors chairman Peter Chang (張信堂). [FULL STORY]
