DO YOU AGREE?
THIS WOMAN SAYS THAT THOSE WHO RECEIVE FREE EDUCATION ARE UNGRATEFUL.
Actually, she said that those who pay to further their studies will value education more than those who receive free scholarships.
This woman is Deputy Education Minister Mary Yap. What she says is her opinion, worth more than 2 sen for sure since she is paid far more than many of us.
Kindly remember that she will have been in the teaching profession all her life, and you know what many teachers are like. They have opinions that they pass on as fact.
The danger here is that she is the Deputy Education Minister, who will influence education policy that has a significant impact on the lives of everyone, including those of our children and grandchildren.

‘Free education will foster ungratefulness’
Those who pay to further their studies will value education more than those who receive free scholarships, says minister.
KUALA LUMPUR: Those who pay to further their studies in tertiary institutions will value education more than those who receive it for free, Deputy Education Minister Mary Yap opined today.
Yap made this statement when disclosing measures taken by the government to overcome the outstanding debt of the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) at the moment.
“Receiving free tertiary education would foster an attitude of lack of appreciation for education,” Yap said in Parliament here.
“When students pay for their own education… or when parents pay for their children, they tend to be more involved in the well-being and education of their children,” she added.
This prompted Ipoh Timor MP Su Keong Siong to say: “Students will appreciate education if given the chance, not when they have to pay”.
In response, Yap curtly said: “You are entitled to your own opinion.”
This is the man who challenged her opinion.
Ipoh Timor MP Su Keong Siong said, “Students will appreciate education if given the chance, not when they have to pay.”
