KUCHING, Dec 2: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sarawak is calling for the new Minister of Education to allow stateless children in Sarawak to attend government schools.

Sarawak PKR deputy chief Abun Sui Anyit said he was informed that there are 30 children aged between 6-12-years-old without identification documents from Long Singut, Baleh, Hulu Rajang, Sarawak who have been expelled from certain government schools.

“With the new government led by Prime Minister Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim, hopefully the new Minister of Education will solve this problem, not only from Hulu Rajang but from all of Sarawak,” he said in a statement today.

According to Abun Sui, after being expelled, the children are taught by volunteers according to their age and class.

He said those children should also be assisted to create new identification documents.

“While waiting for their personal documents to be completed, they should be allowed to attend school because their parents are citizens,” he added. — DayakDaily
