KUALA LUMPUR: The Education Ministry is to help resolve the issue of the reduced administrative allocation for about 200 pre-schools of the National Type Tamil Schools (SJKT) in the country handled by the Implementation Coordination Unit (ICU) of the Prime Minister's Department, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said the ministry would help resolve the issue and ensure that all the pre-schools continued to operate although the matter did not come under its jurisdiction.
"The right to reduce the administrative allocation is not vested in the Education Ministry but with the ICU in the Prime Minister's Department.
"Nevertheless the Education Ministry will intervene in the matter," he said during the Ministers' Question Time.
He was replying to a question from Sivakumar Varatharaju Naidu (PH-Batu Gajah) on the government stand on the issue of the reduced administrative allocation for SJKT pre-schools which were previously assisted by the Socio-Economic Development of Indian Community (SEDIC). — Bernama
