The education minister should reform the policy of student intake at colleges and universities, including the matriculation programme, to ensure a balance between fair representation of ethnic groups and special assistance for the B40.
Teo Kok Seong says the programme was created to boost the intake of Bumiputeras into public universities but that it has created a culture of dependence.
Johan Ariffin says the current quota-based system is 'archaic and lopsided'.
The current policy is to allocate 90% of seats in the pre-university programme to Bumiputeras.
