Taipei, New Taipei Mayors Agree on Promoting 12-Year Compulsory Education

Mayor Ko Wen-je attended a farewell and welcome dinner for incoming and outgoing city councilors on December 26. He urged city government staff to work together for the benefit of the residents of Taipei.

During a media availability session, the mayor commented on the twelve-year compulsory education program. He remarked that he has already discussed the issue with New Taipei City Mayor Eric Chu. A consensus has been reached between the two of them on promoting the program to ensure the continuity of policies.However, Ko expressed concern over the Ministry of Education’s (MOE) indecisiveness on the issue. He called upon MOE to hold information sessions to better communicate with the public on the program and provide alternative schemes if necessary. Asked whether President Ma Ying-jeou would attend Taipei’s New Year’s Eve Countdown Party, the mayor remarked that an invitation has been delivered to the President and will respect his decision. As to the proposed idea of “mobile police stations,” the mayor reckoned that the issue will be looked into after the new Police Commissioner assumes office on January 19, 2015.
