MCA education bureau secretary Chong Sin Woon suggested racial quotas for entry into matriculation programmes and foundation courses for public universities should be scrapped except UiTM.
"Since 2003, entry for non-bumiputras in matriculation programmes is set at 10%. As for asasi courses, many of them are only open to bumiputras. Of late, asasiprogrammes are open to non-bumiputras but there is a quota on them," he said.
He stated that MCA had no problem with UiTM as part of affirmative action to help bumiputras but other public universities should not limit enrolment of non-bumis.
Besides that, MCA also raised the matter of poor Bahasa Malaysia and English among Chinese school students.
Even though it is important to protect the Chinese language, it is crucial to be competent in English and Malay.
