Taiwan’s legislative speaker, Wang Jin-pyng, called for student protesters occupying the
Ministry of Education compound in Taipei to return home Tuesday, saying their demands should have been met after the Legislature approved the conclusions of the ruling-opposition talks on the dispute surrounding the revised high school curriculum guidelines.
The adopted conclusions include the Legislature suggesting that the ministry kick off a review of the disputed curriculum guidelines based on the Senior High School Education Act at once, and the green light for schools around Taiwan to freely select textbooks for the 2015 academic year.
Those conclusions should have met the protesting students’ demands, Wang said after talks with members of the legislative caucuses of the ruling and opposition parties at the Legislative Yuan earlier in the day. [FULL STORY]
