DPP Legislator Chen Ting-fei (陳亭妃) yesterday asked Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) five questions, urging her to state her position on the issue of high-school curriculum guideline adjustments.
“You [Hung] said that the planned adjustments to curriculum guidelines are a constitutional issue, but the process by which the decision to make the changes was made has been declared illegal in court. Do you still think it is a constitutional issue?” Chen asked. “I would say it is more like an issue of legality.”
Hung on Sunday said that the adjustments were made in accordance with the Constitution.
Chen said 60 percent of the sections on Taiwan’s history would be changed, adding: “Is it really so hard to allow students to study Taiwan’s history?” [FULL STORY]
