Malaysians view education reforms seriously

Posted: 17 May 2012 03:34 AM PDT

DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw believes that Malaysians are sensitive to education. They will view very seriously what the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib describes as national level education reforms.

On 17.5.2012, Dr Tan follows the statement of YAB Najib who says 'Malaysia is preparing national level education reforms based on a methodology pioneered in the US from cradle to that they are more marketable after gaining the degree. '

Every education minister intends to leave a mark. There were Razak Report, Rahman Talib Report, Aziz Report and Mahathir Report. Now, YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin prattles about a comprehensive review of the education system. In March, 2012, I asked him what would be the name of the report. He said he did not know. It may be Muhyiddin Report.

The Prime Minister hopes to impress the people with the educational reforms. There are nearly 10,000 primary and secondary schools in Malaysia.Parents can detect strengths such as education is more universal and weaknesses like the low standard of some schools and students.

One disappointment is the teaching of science and mathematics in English (PPSMI). After spending over RM 6 billion, it has been scrapped.We must examine the causes of failure.

Malaysians must be very concerned about the proposed education reforms. Let us look at the comprehensive report cautiously.
