Billions of ringgit spent on courseware and teaching aids will be wasted if the Education Ministry decides to revoke the policy of teaching Maths and Science in English ...I am not pretending to be hypocrites here. Amidst of this dilemma, I strongly advocates this matter as regards to teaching Maths and Science in English is essential and important. In a long term mission we wants our future Malaysian to be well versed in English. No matter how misery it is, we must adhere that we are going no where without English proficiency.
As National Union of Teaching Profession secretary-general Lok Yim Pheng puts it in stark perspective: "It will be extremely painful for everyone. Billions of ringgit would have been wasted in teacher training, reprinting textbooks, and formulating courseware and teaching aids. It would all have been a sheer waste of money and time."
Yes. Turning back or to reversion would be wasted tax-payer money and there will be much complication that apparently put teachers and school administration in a mess. The Government particularly Ministry of Education must stick on this matter and trying to recover the loopholes as far as possible they can do.
Everybody knows that this is not a matter of ridiculous or a mockery. It would neither a political ambitious nor trying to get a sympathy from the Rakyat. This is all about the sake of our future generation who will running this country for years ahead. I hope our Education Minister will consider all these prudently and diligently.
Please do not put six years of hard work going practically "down the drain". Cheers.read more here...
