NCCU official launches hunger strike

中正大學官員發起絕食活動 抗議教育部

NCCU official launches hunger strike
The secretary-general of National Chung Cheng University yesterday launched a hunger strike in front of the Ministry of Education to protest against the distribution of funds earmarked for the MOE's investment project“NT$50 billion in five years” and the project's questionable selection process.

國立中正大學主秘昨日在教育部進行絕食活動,抗議教育部的「五年五百億專案計劃」基金分配以及計劃中令人質疑的篩選過程。

The selection process, however, was not transparent and 25 percent of the 17 reviewers never even attended screening meetings, and the MOE did not explain its standards for review clearly ?resulting in the final name list not only enraging the five unselected universities but also prompting the Legislative Yuan to freeze the project's budget.

然而篩選過程並不透明化,十七名審查員中有四分之一從不出席審查會,教育部也沒有對篩標準提出清楚解釋,結果導致最後的出爐名單不只讓五所未入選的大學感到憤怒,也促使立法院凍結此項專案預算。

Chen said that he would not stop his strike until the MOE agrees to revise the final name list and include NCCU among the investment project. In response, the MOE called on Chen not to make threats and protest against the MOE by holding a hunger strike in the cold weather, hoping Chen would pay attention to his health. The MOE stressed that Chen should communicate with the MOE in a rational way and said that the NCCU's plan was not up to scratch, suggesting the NCCU could cooperate with other schools more to improve itself.

陳孝平表示他不會停止絕食行動,除非教育部同意將中正大學加入投資計畫名單。對此教育部做出回應,呼籲陳孝平不要在寒冷天氣進行絕食抗議行動來威脅教育部,希望他能注意健康,教育部強調,他應該與教育部進行理性溝通,並表示中正大學並沒有達到標準,建議中正大學應該與其他學校合作來提昇自己。

The Education and Culture Committee of the Legislative Yuan will hold a coordination meeting regarding the investment project “NT$50 billion in five years” and Chen hoped that the results and the MOE's response to his request would not disappoint him.

立法院教育及文化委員會將召開協調會議討論「五年五百億計劃,」陳孝平希望結果與教育部對他所要求的回應將不會令他失望。
