A Ministry of Education-staged secondary school forum wrapped up Dec. 20
in Taipei City, further expanding communication channels between the government and students.
The two-day event brought together 20 experts, officials and teachers, as well as 100 high school and vocational students, from around Taiwan to discuss the key topics of career and curriculum planning, civic awareness and social participation, multiculturalism and globalization, and smart life solutions and technology development.
Education Minister Wu Se-hwa said the forum serves as a valuable platform for students to voice different opinions. “It also helps them develop independent thinking and glimpse their potential on the road to a bright future.”
Echoing Wu’s remarks, Huang Tzu-teng, director-general of K-12 Education Administration under the MOE, said the forum breaks down the barriers to intergenerational dialogue. “By springboarding off this positive collaboration, we hope to draft policies more in line with the expectations of students.” [FULL STORY]
