The Global Perspective of Taiwan

Uh, this god damn country does NOT even have a peripheral vision, let alone, the global, perspective here, as the DDP still, keeps on, sucking UP to the U.S. here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The new version of the tactics of N.A.T.O. for the very first time, mentioned China, and, the department of diplomatic affairs commended N.A.T.O. on “showing that wider global perspectives”.  Meaning, that for the past, this regional defense organization made up of European countries, Canada, and the U.S. didn’t perceive the Chinese threats, and Taiwan being oppressed as serious enough, that it’d lacked, that global, perspective.  This is, the countries, getting ready for war, the mindset of, boasting the importance of this country.

What’s ironic, is the members of EU diplomats called out to the country, that the Tsai government’s “dual-language country” only focused on English, which lessened the chances of Taiwan’s getting noted in the other non-English speaking nations in Europe.  And the relations of Taiwan and Europe, won’t get closer, through the English language now being set as a part of the curriculum.  What EU didn’t state was, that from the angle of education, Taiwan is, way too far from “global”, mostly, “semi-global”, to even, “limited to the U.S”.

The countries of EU worried, that in the rigidity of Tsai’s “all-English education”, in the future, Taiwan may have a lower quality of education, teaching the European languages through, English.  But, what’s so weird about, learning other European languages, through, English?

In the policies of “Dual-Language Nation”, the middle school instructors are tested on their English abilities, the Chinese instructors don’t get tested in Chinese, but in English also; the college Chinese courses also get the teachers who will “teaching in all English” for the classes.  And, the countries of European Union will soon see, that the students here will learn the subjects in science, social studies, physical education, arts and music, and even, getting counseled in, English; what’s even more, magical, is that the students will be learning CHINESE, using English too soon!

In Taiwan, U.S. is the entire world, the global perspective, equivalent to the U.S. perspectives, let alone, education must defy China as well.  The country will, toss back anything in relations to Chinese, the ancient histories, and, the European Union should not mind, that the other European languages, get, slashed by this country.

The country IS, the U.S.’s, BITCH, because, this government continued to suck up to the U.S., thinking, that we can, rely on the U.S. to help us defend ourselves if China were to have a coup d’état of this country, that’s why, the education reforms are, completely like the U.S.’s, the twelve years, grade one through twelve, and that’s, just, messed up, the government failed to consider, that what works in the States, may not work here, due to the cultural differences, the differences of population makeup too, and that’s, just how shortsighted the DDP is, still sucking UP to the U.S.

As High School Education Became Netflix

How this new curricular of the education FUCKS up all the students graduating from high school right now, too many choices, not enough knowledge on ALL the choices, the failures of the reforms of education here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

“The mainstream cultures are forcing us to enrich our résumé, and not get tied down by some place; it’d forced us to focus on the abstract skills we’d attained that can be used in anyplace, instead of being good at just one particular skill. …………it tells us, to NOT persist on any one thing seriously, and don’t be surprised when others choose to do differently.  Most importantly, it tells us, to keep our options, open.”

The above passage is out of “Dedicated.  The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing.”, the writer, Pete Davis points out, that the unlimited browsing became, a norm of every day life.  Netflix being a good example of this.  People often click the icon, and used the mouse to go from “Showing Now”, “Top Ten of the Day”, “Netflix Original”, “Documentary”, “Drama”, all the way to, “Surprise Me”.  Dozens of minutes flew by, and, after skimming through the hundreds of choices of the forty categories, people lost their interests, and just, turn off the computers.  And, the options from unlimited browsing, made us lose the abilities to focus on one solitary, task.

Looking closely at the reforms of education of 2019, the ideologies of “helping every student find what s/he is good at, and succeed in learning”, is quite, amazing.  The entrance interviews by the colleges, universities, are from tis group of recent high school graduates.  Through the written applications, the evaluations of the information packets by the professors, as well as the interviews, as a college lecturer, I have so many questions: does the reform of education of 2019, really fit to the needs of the current world it says that it’s supposed to?

The designs for the learning process profile platforms, are only a tip of the iceberg of the reforms of education of 2019.  I’m not talking about the uploaded data packs getting lost, but the interface of the system, along with the designs of the user experience, it’s directly opposite of what the core values that the reforms of education in 2019 had preached about.  And, once more, it’d shown, that what the adults tell the younger generations to do, they can’t even, manage themselves.

There are, many myths to the 2019 Curriculum Reform, including, the holistic belief of mastering everything, along with the free choices of the multivariate learning processes.

What worries me the most, is that the 2019 Curricular Reforms are focused more on the core values, instead of the non-knowledge craftsmanship.  Which one’s more important, it’s hard to decide.  And yet, looking at now, people are slowly, losing their ability to tackle one thing well enough.  And, the mainstream beliefs keep on, demeaning the values of knowledge.  And we can find that apparent, in the current pandemic outbreaks: how many lives had already been, lost.

And this is still due to how HALF-ASSED legislations of the government on the reforms of education became, it’d NOT transitioned the students well, just, pulled them out of their original state, and, stuck them into this new system, and of course, nobody can adapt, not the parents, not the students, let alone, the professors, but hey, that’s the way, we can, catch up to the western world, or so believed, the DDP government, which is total BULLSHIT!

Considering how long the west had been educating using their current means, and we’re just, switching to the new methods of teaching and learning, and the students’ brains don’t shift into second gear that fast, so of course, a lot of them are SCREWED over.

Not to mention the instability of the uploading system, like how it got FRIED in the central data processing units, and everybody who’d submitted their separate (and equally USELESS learning process profiles) got FRIED, because the central processing system got FRIED, oopsy daisy!

So you see, the system is still, way too, flawed, and, how are we supposed to educate our children in this, flawed, FUCKED (don’t pardon me here!) system, because the government suddenly got that idea of hey, we should get connected to the western world, and use THEIR ways.

More than Tens of Thousands Supported the Specialized Two-Year-Old Classes, the Education Groups Objected to the Amendments of Mixing the Two-Year-Olds into the Preschool Classes

This is due to those, WHINY parents who needed to work, who can’t place their not-yet-preschool or kindergarten age children anywhere, and this is still, STUPID, not considering the developmental needs of the child!  The @#$%ED up policy of early childhood education that this government came up with, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education is planning on opening up the first year of kindergarten for as young as three-year-old, and the early childhood groups started criticizing, suspected that if the government went forth with this policy, then, the two-year-old specialty classes would be totally, screwed up.  The All-Education Foundation gone to protest at the Department of Education, claimed, that within two days’ announcing the policies, there were, more than tens of thousand who’d signed the petitions to support the opening of the two-year-old specialty classes already, against the mixed-age of two year olds into the preschool classes, called out to the Department of Education to stop the amendment from passing.

In actuality, the two-year-old specialized classrooms has a totally different setting compared to the three-year-old only class, for instance, the toilets for the two-year-old classes need to be located in the back of the class, not for the threes.  The teacher-student ratio for the twos is one to eight, for the toddlers of first year kindergarten and up it’s one to fifteen, and there were the owners of the facilities who aren’t opening up the early childhood classes, due to the costs in hiring the extra certified early childhood educators.

The committee member of All Education Foundation of Child Education, Yang stated, that if the children under age three can get mixed into the three-year-old classes, then, does that mean, that five-year-olds are allowed into elementary school to learn.  The Department of Education should NOT open that door of convenience, just because it matched the needs of some of the operators of the early childhood programs.

The Department of Education stated, that this amendment merely allows for the chances of biological three-year-olds to be in the same classroom setting as the three yar old toddlers, that it would NOT be like having kids in various ages in the same classes.  And, if the schools are to have the classes, then, three mandates must be met including, the preschool not having a two-year-old only classes, or if the two-year-old classes are already, filled in enrollment, with the three-year-old classes still having the vacancies, and the toddler must be biologically three year old on the month of registration, then, the toddler can start schooling.

this mixed age group would work

I’m thinking…photo from online, because at least, the‘re, “roughly” the same ages.,,photo from online

And so, just like ALL other policies by the DDP, this is, still giving us the run-around, I mean, what the HELL is being biologically three, three years of age since the day we were born, but, what if, mentally, we’re still not yet, potty trained by then?  And, this mix age class is still just bullshit, I mean, surely, if you mix the four year-olds with the five, six year olds in a class, that would be okay, but, two is still, way too young, when they needed the individual attention, and besides, the teacher-to-student ratios are totally different for these age groups, so, what it adds up is, you’ll be having, 2.5 instructors (that’s still just made up by me!), and, where the HECK you gonna find HALF of a teacher, oh I know, you split the early childhood educators in HALF, then, place one half in the 2.5 teacher classroom, and, leave the remaining HALF of that instructor that’s gotten, hacked down the middle, inside the CLOSETS!

Yeah, that’s too stupid, I mean, if they’re older, sure, it might work, but not at that young and age…

Opening up the Mix-Age Classes of Children Over Two Years of Age, the Holistic Education Foundation is Strictly Against This

In the kindergarten years, maybe, if individual attention is given to the students personally, but, not in the toddler years!  And yet, this amendment of the education of early childhood got written down, this is totally NOT considering the cognitive developments of the early childhood years!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Department of Education recently proposed the second rule of the amendments of early childcare program and early childhood education, it’d planned to place the two-year-olds into the mixed age classes of three, and four year olds, but the Holistic Education Foundation questioned, that the Department of Education announced this before the long holidays, that they were, calculating something, and called out for the Department of Education to SLAM on the brake on this policy, in order, to protect the rights of two-year-old toddlers’.

and no, this is still NOT what you’re gonna get!

unfortunately…photo from online

Based off of the rough drafts of this act, the Department of Education considered the right of children in the early childhood years to receive an education, the needed care, as well as considering the need of the parents to place their young in the nurseries to mandate the early childhood facilities that if the facilities didn’t have the toddler classes of two to not yet three year olds (the specialty classes for two year-olds), or that there’s no extra slots for the two-only classes, and there are still room available for the three to four classes, that the school is allowed to place the toddlers under age three in the three-to-four-year-old classes.

The committee member of the Holistic Education Foundation of early childhood education, Yang told, that the levels of understanding is what is used to assign the needed resources, and the setting of the policies of education, that it’s a basis for measuring the developments of young children, that the two-year-olds have different developmental milestones and needs compared to the three-year-olds, that the preview of this act was due to there’s not enough resources in the two-year-old classes, that the Department of Education was only finding a resolve for their own incompetence of policies in early childhood care.

The Department of Education stated, that at the start of May, they’d already invited the local government, the instructors, the early childhood education professionals, as well as parent groups to ask for their advice, that it will continue to listen to the various opinions, and take the opinions as a reference for the amendment.

this…photo from online

mixed with a little of this…

except not in those seats, but running around like PSYCHOS in the classrooms! Photo from online

Yeah uh, this is still, totally, FUCKED (don’t pardon me here!) up, I mean, the twos are, potty training, meaning, that they may NOT have that down pat yet, and now, imagine this, the teachers are, chasing those three-year-olds around (industry vs. inferiority stage anybody???), with the group of twos, going potty, everywhere in the classroom setting, and, you’d end up with, a whole lot of messes that you, STUPID adults can’t handle, and this is still all due to how the government wanted to appease to the parents’ needs to place their young in daycare, because they all gotta work, and in the end, guess W-H-O gets, screwed???  The children, because they are NOT receiving the needed care in accordance to their, cognitive development, because the government wants to MIX it up, oh, and don’t forget about lunch hour, that’s gonna be, a total MESS too, and, how many teacher’s assistance would you need in this sort of a mix-age class, because, there’s a DIFFERENT ratio of students per instructor in these, various age groups, hello, hello, hello???  This IS, a NO-BRAINER, you do realize that, don’t you???

Yeah, uh-huh, uh-hum, and, how does THAT make you feel again?

‘K, I’m OUT!

Do Improve the Quality of Education Starting in the Elementary School Years

Everything is still, built, from the, most, fundamental levels, in the elementary years, and yet, this god damn government run by the DDP, only zooms in on higher ed here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

I’m certain, that most of the scholars all noted the importance of education in the college levels, but what I want to emphasize today, is that we should, pay more attention to the education of children in the elementary years.  We are a country where primary school education had been, implemented, no children is not in school.  Even in the distant regions, there were, the elementary schools locally, and the buildings in these regions are quite, nice.  I’d found, that in the distant region elementary schools, the trees and the flowers, flourished.  But I’m also, aware that there’s a very large gap between the quality of education for the elementary years in the cities versus the countryside.

There’s the simple statistic measure.  Every year in the national skills exams, there are around thirty-percent of students who’d scored at least a C in English and math.  But in the distant regions, the number of students who received the grade of C or above is higher than the average of thirty-percent, the average of the sores of C or above is eighty-percent.  If we trace the reasons, then, we would come to the conclusions that the distant region school students fall far behind the students learning and living in the urban regions.

But that does NOT mean that the instructors aren’t doing enough in the distant-regions, you must know, that this country had no quality-control of the education provisions in the elementary years, and there would be some students who are, slower to learn, and, surely, there are, this group of slower students in the cities as well, but, if the students are from better-to-do backgrounds, the parents would usually find the children the help they needed, and can send them to cram schools or hire a tutor to teach them.  But, the children in the distant-regions aren’t as blessed, if the child can’t even write her/his ABCs, can’t spell enough number of words, then, the student would be lacking in her/his means of learning the English language, math is like so.

What’s important is, that the Department of Education doesn’t pay attention to if the elementary age students have all their basic level of knowledge down pat, letting the group of students, just get all the way, through the grades in school, from the first to the sixth grade.  After elementary, the student will enter into middle school, no examinations there, any child can get in.  Based off of the English classes, the middle school level English courses are nothing too easy, if the students didn’t get the firm foundations back in the elementary years, then, they will surely, lag behind.  The problems with the math courses are even worse, the kids would get confused by the positive and negative integers to start, and they’d had to solve the equations with one unknown.  A lot of the students in the equations involving fractions, would start making a lot of errors, reason being, they’d NOT learned the fundamentals of fractions back in the elementary years.

If the students don’t have a firm enough foundation in the elementary years, then, all the way up the grade levels, they will find themselves, without the competitive edge that is needed.  I hope, that the country knows, that the adults with the lack of this competitive edge isn’t due to the lack of intelligence, but, because they hadn’t mastered the skills in the elementary years.  And, we can say, that this lacking in tightening up the education systems, is exactly what’s causing this lack of competitive edge in the adults right now, and the children who hadn’t set up the foundations of learning may even turn into burdens on the entire society.

I hope that the experts in education don’t just focus on the higher education means, and just, set up the elementary schools correctly, by helping the students acquire the most basic of skills, and there’s NO reason why our government can’t, manage this.  Allowing the younger generations of children to NOT have the most basic of skill, is the most irresponsible actions of a government.

And so, this government still, missed the point, thinking, that offering higher education to all is what’s necessary, to up the competitive edge, without realizing, that if the fundamentals are set up firmly from the primary, secondary education years, then, no matter how higher up the level of education the person can get, it’s still, nothing, because they can’t do the simple stuff.

The Heart Aching Measures of Utilizing the Learning Process Profiles

On how the reforms of education is, ruining the competitive edges, the education of the next generations of, children, written by an honorary professor, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The major event in education, I suppose, is on the learning process profiles.  As I’d read through the documents from the Department of Education on it, it’d, ached my heart.  There are, as many as eighteen criteria for high school graduates to submit for their college entrance packets, of them, were the mini-thesis, the levels certifications of English ability exams, the math exams, the reading plans, and what nots.

What was upsetting to me was, I knew a lot of the students hadn’t gotten the level of understanding of education in high school, and, how can these students manage the mini-theses?  And, a lot of children who are from lower end of economics, can’t afford to take the certification exams in English and math, for the children in the distant-regions, learning process profiles aren’t, anything worth, looking into.  I know, that for a lot of these children who are raised in worse off economic backgrounds, they can only, ignore these things like the learning process profiles.

To stand out in the learning process profiles, a lot of parents had spent a whole lot of money, placing their own young into the cram schools, so they can understand how to write the programming formulas that are good enough.  And like so, for this group of children, they naturally, have an, outstanding learning process profile.  But, for children out of the worse off home fronts, they can’t, afford, to do these things.

To enter into university, the exams are, necessary, and the test results showed the students’ abilities, so why are we requiring them to write about what they’d, learned?  If a student isn’t fluent enough in English, does his written report prove meaningful?  The learning process profiles required the math skills exams verifications, this is, an addition, for the sake of those, gifted and talented students.

It’s nothing easy, to write good programs in the high school age, because, there are, the fundamental courses of physical science, math, English subjects, that takes up much of the students’ learning time.  If a student spent too much time of learning to write the programs, they couldn’t possibly have the needed time to study for the basic subjects of science, math, English, etc., etc., etc.  But what this country really needs, is still the group of youth that had their, fundamentals down pat.  Although I know how to write the programming, but I still believed, that if someone who can only write these written reports, but is bad at math, then, chances will be, that the person won’t be able to produce good enough programming.  For instance, a lot of the communication apps are all related to math closely.

The implementing of the learning process profiles, it’s equivalent to punishing the students who are not from well-enough economic backgrounds, because their parents simply can’t afford them to have that bright and shiny learning process profiles made.  For the gifted and talented students, the learning process profiles will only make them even more stressed, as they can’t possibly know, that if their fellow classmates could produce a better mini-thesis because of their parents’ help.  For the whole of the country, these learning process profiles, definitely, failed to raise the competitive edges of the students here.  What made my heart ached the most, is that for the children from less-economically capable backgrounds, the learning process profiles may be, one of their, biggest, downfalls.

And so, this, is how awful these reforms of education became, it’s basing the capabilities of the students on how active they are in their daily goings on, and for those children from lesser families, they simply can’t afford to go to all those, extra, camps, extracurricular activities, because their parents can’t afford it, and, the learning process profiles, it’d, made them lagged behind the rest of the more economically capable families’ children, and that defeats the whole purpose of the reforms of education, because the reforms of education should center around on how we can make the next generation ready for their lives, by putting them through the institution of higher education, and the learning process profiles does, exactly the opposite, because it basically runs on M-O-N-E-Y!!!

The Parents are Worried: the Six Years of Elementary Education, the Children May be Forced to Take Up the Extra Talent Classes

The reforms in education by the HEADS of Department of Education really FUCKED up all the children who are currently being, placed in the, systems of, education right now all right!  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The entrance exams for entering into private middle schools became this “chain of entering into school”, which the legislative department intends of sever off, the Department of Education, stated, that facing up to the “limited number of slots, and too many students wanting to get in”, the private schools started, strategizing, changing the means of acceptance into school from one test to multifaceted, and yet, this made the parents worry, that the children are not faced with the pressures of doing well on just, one entrance exam, but, the entire six years worth of elementary education in learning, the pressures are only growing greater, not reduced.

The C.E.O., Peng of the National Parents’ League stated, in the past, the determinants of school is based off of one entrance exam, which caused the students to over cram in the cram schools, but, if the entrance of students into schools is by the raffles or based off of the locations of the household registries, publicizing the private schools, the private schools will lose their competitive edge, and couldn’t survive.  She is supportive of the private middle school’s turning the “one entrance exam determinant” to the multifaceted entrance considerations.

But the secretary of the Parenting Education League of Taiwan, Hsieh was against this, he believed, that since elementary, and middle school education are, mandatory, then, there’s the need to unify the system, the public schools can’t choose their students, therefore, the private school shouldn’t either, besides, if the private schools are really about education, then, they should NOT be selective of the students’ grades, otherwise, there may be the elementary school students, taking up too much talent classes.

what the government is, trying to do…comic from online

Liao, the president of the Elementary School Parents United said, if the entrance to schools is changed to multivariate, then, the policies should change accordingly, otherwise, it would give the schools too much right to choose which student to accept, that the policies, need to help prevent the children from taking up too many talent classes, that they lose out on their happy childhood years.

Liao also mentioned, that in the original system of entrance exams being the determinant of students into private schools, most dual-income families can afford to send their young into the private schools, but, once the means of entrance changed to multivariate, the total costs of cram school sessions, talent classes for the six years of elementary school years, will not be shouldered well by the families.

The multivariate entrance currently only applies to high school or college, not only is the entrance exam grades taken into considerations, the school grades are also, weighed quite heavily, with the considerations of the child’s awards in scholastic performances, in the talent competitions, etc., etc., etc., the community involvement via community services.

And so this, is how the education here, is, shifting toward the western’s means, but, this means had worked in the western nations, because it’d been used for ??? however long, since the start of time (maybe, how the HELL should I know!), and yet, this means of entrance is still all brand new here, and, the government just wanted to, flip and flop the system, and expect that the students catch up to the program, the government IS, delusional all right, in its beliefs, that it can, help us, catch the rest of the western world’s, steps, by, making the next generations schooling years, even harder.

Long Hours at School, Too Much Homework, How Can the Students Have Enough Sleep

So, the rules are set, now, it takes some time, to see how it will work out, or if it, won’t!  Reforms of education, delaying the hours of school starting for high school here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A comparison of the school starting time in various countries: in Germany, Mexico, the time of school is from eight in the morn to two in the afternoon, an average class time of six hours; in Japan, Canada, the hours are from nine to three, six hours of class.  For U.S., England and Australia, the average classroom time is six and a half; Russian school starts at 8:30 in the morn, lets out at 3:30 in the afternoons, seven hours of school; France, being the exception of Europe, classes are from eight in the morn to four in the afternoon, a total of eight hours of course instruction.

What about Taiwan?  The students here must arrive in school at 7:30 in the morn for the study period, a lot of the students are taking their options of eighth period, and, the time of them getting out of school is at five in the afternoon, an average of 9.5 hours of school per day, we are the top of the world in the longest school time.  Long hours in school, at home, homework takes forever too, and, this takes away from the time of sleep for the students.  Two years ago the Children’s Welfare League posted its survey results, the high school age students sleep approximately 6.9 hours per night in Taiwan, and China.

the “pros” of school starting later…from online

In 2020, the citizens mentioned on the platform of legislation start up by the citizens online that the school time for middle and high school students should change from 7:30 to 9:30 in the mornings.  Delaying the start of school can help the teens get more sleep, and, separates the time of adults going to work, to prevent the traffic jams; this struck up debates and discussions, and, shortly thereafter, there were more than 10,000 in the local communities who’d signed the petitions.  Back then, the Department of Education stated that it was going to get the opinions from all around.  Then, it went silent, for the entire year of 2021.

Recently, the Chenggong High School announced its doing away with the mandatory early morning study period, the gathering for the whole school in the morn, this is to be implemented on February 11th, as school start, as the news got out, this became, a news of the hour.  Since last semester when Chenggoing High School slashed the warnings of students coming late to school, in the recent school policy meetings (with teachers, parents and students in participation to discuss the matter), the votes for slashing the early morning period of study and gathering in the morning of the whole school was, passed.

The Department of Education is responding too late, it’d finally announced yesterday on the fifteenth, that starting in the fall semester this year the high schools from around the country is not to mandate the students to arrive in school for first period, meaning, that no testing will be held during this first period of class, and finally, the Department of Education had, heard the requests of the students here.

And so, this still showed, how inactive the Department of Education is, in changing its policies of starting of school time, and it’s still up to the citizens, to start CRYING, WHINING about it, for something, TO be, done, and, yet, would the kids really, actually (I mean, for REAL here!!!), take these extra hours of them not going to school early, to catch their ZZZs, or, are they going to, stay up later, knowing, that they don’t have to head off to school early in the morn the following day?

Putting the “Theories” of “Equality” into Practice, the Dictionary from the Department of Education No Longer Differentiated Between Paternal & Maternal Grandparents

The government’s, getting all UP in our separate FACES, in HOW we are to refer to, our own, elders here, in an attempt, to ERADICATE our knowledge of, where we come from, like the Cultural Revolution days of China???  Off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

When Maternal Grandfathers Became Just “Grandpas”, the Instructor Worried it May Cause the Students Confusions on Differentiating Between the Paternal & Maternal

Recently, the terms of “maternal grandfather” and “maternal grandmother” struck up a ton of debates, the head of Department of Education, Pan stated yesterday, that in order to put gender equality into practice, not only did the certified Chinese language dictionaries changed “maternal” grandparents to just “grandparents”, there’s no differentiation between maternal and paternal, and the grandchildren is too.  But some believed, that it’s an extra move that the government is making, changing, for the sake of, changing; the civics instructors shared their worries on the matter, that maybe, switching the way the students referred to their elders may cause them confusion.

the civics instructor of Neili High School of Taoyuan, Koa said, “maternal” grandparents had been called so since long ago, it’d become, traditional, the Department of Education should assess closely, if “maternal” and “paternal” brings about some sort of stereotypical gender specifications, instead of going along with a minority of the legislators wanting to change it.  If the government insisted on stressing “no differentiation between the maternal and paternal”, then, it may also, affect the relatives in the civics courses, the counting of the cousins too, and, mix up the students’ cognitions of one’s own relatives.

The head of Department of Education, Pan stated, that the gender equality committee of the department of education is currently evaluating the matter taking considerations of the opinions from all around, to adjust what’s on the dictionaries; that the National Education Department would review the matters every quarter.  Because, there’s no legal differentiation between grandparents, and some families are already used to referring to their elders the way they’re referring to them already.

And, this is, another attempt to make the next generations of children, NOT known their own roots, I mean, we’d been referring to our grandparents differently as paternal and maternal since the beginning of our lives, and, the government’s now telling us that it’s wrong?  Yeah, uh, what if the families still uses their original ways of calling their elders as they were originally called from before, is the government going to, put surveillance in every house across this island, to SEE if, we’re, all, complying to this, stupid law?  Yeah, good luck on that, DDP!

This is BULLSHIT is what THIS is.
