Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation

Localization of education

Pro-independence groups last Sunday called on the government to step up efforts to increase localization of the education system and curricula.

Critics of localization have argued that changes to curricula — such as reducing the emphasis on Chinese history and classical Chinese language and literature — will steer Taiwanese away from their “Chinese roots.”


MAC hires lawyer for Lee Ching-yu

The government has hired a lawyer for Lee Ching-yu (李凈瑜), the wife of Taiwanese human rights activist Lee Ming-che (李明哲), who is being held in China on charges of subversion, Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Deputy Minister Chiu Chui-cheng (邱垂正) said yesterday.

The council would try to obtain permission from the Chinese government for the MAC-hired lawyer, as well as Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) personnel and private individuals to accompany Lee Ching-yu, he said.

In response to the incident, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said in an interview: “First of all I want to inform China that the flag incident had nothing to do with us. It was the Argentine athletes who did it.”

The missed power of a name

While the nation reveled in Taiwanese athletes’ outstanding performance at the Taipei Summer Universiade, the legislature on Thursday passed amendments to the National Sports Act (國民體育法).

While the long-overdue legislation has been touted as a big step toward improving the nation’s sporting environment for the development of athletes and enforcing accountability and financial transparency of sports governing bodies, the Democratic Progressive Party’s (DPP) performance has left many people shaking their heads.
