Students from the Northern Taiwan Anti-Curriculum Changes Alliance yesterday stormed out
of a Ministry of Education sponsored forum in Taipei on controversial adjustments to high-school curriculum guidelines.
Alliance spokesman Brian Sung (宋運川) said that K-12 Education Administration Director Wu Ching-shan’s (吳清山) responses to students’ questions lacked sincerity, with Wu avoiding key issues and deliberately wasting time.
“[Wu] was unable to give an account for why the ministry waited until now to put on the forums, or where in the world Minister [of Education Wu Se-hwa (吳思華)] is,” Sung said.
He rejected offers by Wu Ching-shan to arrange a meeting between student representatives and Wu, saying it was too late. [FULL STORY]
