KLANG: Selangor Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said today the state government will continue to provide aid to Chinese and Tamil schools as well as Sekolah Agama Rakyat, SAR or public religious schools in Selangor, next year.
The Chinese medium school and SAR each received annual aid RM 6million while the Tamil medium schools received RM 4 million annually, he said after launching the Sekolah Menengah Cina Persendirian Chung Hwa’s 100th anniversary celebration, here Saturday.
However, Abdul Khalid said that for the 2012 State Budget, there was ‘hope’ that allocation for the three categories of schools would be raised but he declined to comment further on the form of the state budget for next year to be tabled next week.
