Exam-free policy risks Taiwan education quality

The plan by the President Ma Ying-jeou's Chinese Nationalist Party government to replace the national examination system for senior high schools vocational schools with a new "examination-free admission system" threatens to breed even more social inequity and could throw the doors to Taiwan's secondary education to a flood of students from the People's Republic of China.

In June 2009, the Ministry of Education released a set of "Draft Guidelines for Exam-free Admission to Senior and Vocational High Schools and Junior Colleges" that announced its intention to phase out the current system of deciding admission primarily through distribution based on joint national examinations taken in the last year of junior high schools in favor of "examination free" admission.

Honesty is worth the risk of ulcers

In view of the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) recent string of poor electoral showings, one would expect members who care about the state of the party to jump at the chance for a frank discussion with party leaders on how to stop the bleeding.

President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) dinner for KMT lawmakers on Monday night provided such a chance, giving the lawmakers a rare opportunity to deliver pan-blue supporters’ grievances in person to Ma, who doubles as KMT chairman.

Taiwan needs consensus before talks with PRC

In the wake of the sweep of three legislative by-elections by the opposition Democratic Progressive Party, President Ma Ying-jeou and his right-wing Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) administration should cease their habitual "black box" decision making style in favor of a more open and consultative method that can build consensus on the critical challenges facing Taiwan.

Saturday's sweep by the DPP of formerly KMT held seats in Taoyuan, Taichung and Taitung Counties displayed the gap between the Ma government's policies and the public will and demonstrated the vulnerability of both the KMT's current huge legislative majority and even Ma's own chances of re-election in early 2012 if his government does not change its ways.

PRC barks sanctions, but can it bite?

Following announcements by the Obama administration last week that sales of weapons systems to Taiwan approved by the previous administration would proceed, Beijing reacted with its usual contempt, claiming that Washington’s decision would undermine US-China ties and represented meddling in China’s internal affairs.

One thing that Beijing did differently this time, however, was up the ante by hinting that the sale could result in trade sanctions against the US firms involved. This unprecedented threat — ostensibly targeting Lockheed Martin Corp, which was awarded a contract to sell Taipei an unspecified number of Patriot missiles — was yet another sign that China now perceives itself as a “Great Power” and that it can now threaten countermeasures that hitherto had mostly been the remit of leading states like the US, or groups like the EU.

The Dragon's Swagger

BEIJING — A U.S. official here told me he was “getting a little nervous about 2010” when it comes to Chinese-American relations. I’d say there’s plenty of cause for that. I’m not optimistic about the world’s most important relationship in the short term.

The Obama administration came in with a deeply held philosophical view about making the Chinese stakeholders, and partners, in an interconnected world. Human rights complaints were muted, the Dalai Lama put on hold, and President Obama swung into town in November with arms outstretched to the rising behemoth.

Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Wu Yu-sheng (吳育昇) was yesterday named as the first candidate for a civic group’s recall campaign because of his consistent alignment with President and KMT Chairman Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) rather than with the public he is meant to serve, according to the group.

The Constitution 133 Alliance, recently established with the goal of recalling legislators it sees as incompetent, told a press conference that it would soon launch a recall campaign against Wu, a former KMT caucus whip who is known to be one of Ma’s confidants.
