A total of RM50 million has been disbursed as maintenance provision to Chinese National Type Schools (SJKC) under the government aided schools category this year.
The EducationMinistry in a written statement in Parliament today said the aid had been disbursed in stages from Feb 26.
The explantion was in reply to a question from Teo Nie Ching (DAP-Kulai) who wanted the ministry to state the amount of allocation for SJKC last year and this year.
Previously the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong reportedly said the government allocated RM565 million through the National Economy Stimulus Package as disbursed aid to SJKC since it was introduced in 2009.
Wee said there are 1,298 SJKC nationwide, including 884 government aided schools (SBK) that also benefited from the financial assistance.
