Boleh pigi mati lah. Why should we provide the schools with our income tax, photocopy of the parents IC, photocopy of the pay slip for some crummy textbooks aids? If the Min. of Education is sincere in helping all students, then, do away with this selection of students for book loans. After all, how much is it to sponsor all students with textbooks compared to the value of the education they received? Just stop building more white elephants and it is enough to bear the costs of providing free books for students for decades already. As it is, the books are recycled each year so we don’t need to buy new books every year.
Well, it is as simple as a one question thing. If we want to get free books, then, prove. If we don’t want, then, there is nothing to fill. But nooooo….read what they said if we refused to cooperate :
menjejaskan hal ehwal murid
Naik api only, what menjejaskan hal ehwal murid? Want to threaten me, issit? Go fly kite lah, we are not going to provide a single thing to the Ministry of Education because in the first place, we never apply for free books. Secondly, we never trust those people who handles our private info. Thirdly, we bet our heads that these information will be sold to some third parties. Fourthly, it is bullshit that the Min. of Education need such details just to approve a miserable RM100+ book loan.
Hello, Minister of Education. Tolong modernise sikitlah. When I was in in Standard Three, like 30 years ago, you all already asked for such info. But that time, I got no choice ‘cos I memang golongon termiskin and had no father. So, my mom had to minta tolong from the penghulu of my kampung just so that I can borrow textbooks. Ini tahun 2007. Kita dah ada IT. Dah modern. Buku tu cuma RM100. Keep the money for yourself lah. Manatau, nak beli pengilap for keris kan?
Save the application. Save your staff’s time. Just give everyone free textbooks and make schooling compulsory. Easy as that. And stop demanding students to buy so many workbooks and non-useful CD Roms. Our Education department already fraught with so many loopholes and weaknesses, what more can we expect from the whole Government, huh?
