Dear friends, students, parents of the China ethnic minorities, we are China ethnic Koreans who left China and live overseas. We were China ethnic minorities, just like you, when we were in China.
In China, we were just like you, we were forced to the CCP government basic education system that made us to have only about one hour Chinese lesson a day, from elementary school to senior high, and all the rest of the lessons were of ethnic minority’s language and text. We were forced to have no freedom of choice to enter the schools using the Chinese language.
The rules of the basic education system that put on our ethnic minorities make us social incompetent in the China society for generations to generations. We were born in China. We were living in China. We were to survive in China. But since we were incompetent in the oral language and characters in the China society, we were like “foreign new immigrations” for generations and generations, forever and ever.
We the people of ethnic Koreans stated our fight against the CCP government’s system in Yanbian, Jilin. Things have turned a little bit improved. In some schools, the teachers of the Chinese lessons have been no longer ethnic Koreans but native Chinese speaking ethnic Hans. In some schools, there are two class of Chinese lessons each day. However, these little bits of change do not change the nature of our situation. Our children are still having no freedom to choose to enter Chinese schools.
We do no oppose the existence of the schools that using ethnic minorities’ language and text in the teaching. We demand the CCP government to provide sufficient Chinese language education in ethnic minorities’ schools. This is a matter that concerns our coming generations to gain fair opportunities, fair competitive abilities and fair positions in the China society. At the same time, we also demand the CCP government to eliminate the rules that ethnic minorities’ children only allowed to go to ethnic minorities’ language schools. We demand the CCP government to respect each ethnic minority family’s choice to choose for their children to go to Chinese language schools freely.
We appeal to you, that the China ethnic minorities get united to fight against the CCP’s oppressive basic education system together. We are china ethnic minorities. We do not want to live like “foreign new immigrants” in China. We must gain for our younger generations the rights to receive sufficient basic education in order for them to have fair opportunities, fair competitive abilities and fair social positions in the China society.
