Language-switch policy scrapped

Language switching is a very interesting topic apart from switching parties. When Mahathir first mooted the idea of teaching Maths and science in English, all the ball cariers (including suckers) jumped from trees to say it is the most brilliant idea that mankind ever thought of. Nothing can come in handier than this to change the sorry state of our grads..

At that time, the opponents of the policy are considered anti progressive. So every adun, member of parliament and their maids as well jumped in to a frenzy celebration of new language policy.

The same group now says. things that the opponents said few years ago..only that the nation is few billion ringgit poorer now due to that language switching. The lost of the nation is someones gain.. Dont ask me who?

Put that a side. Some say we can produce better grads by teaching science and maths in English. It seems they will have better command. Aiiya..people, you jokers never understand one thing, you must take in deserving undergrad to get quality grad out put. You plant cacti and expect for durians..mana boleh? Many of the deserving people are left on the streets and you take in the second and third stringers who are not suppose to be there in the first place.

Do you think this second stringers going to be world renowned scientist Or do you expect them to present papers in the gallery of intellectuals. the letter below to witness what have our education standard has come to.. So be it English or Malay, if you gonna take in only the non deserving ones.. its not going to make any difference except politically.

As a teacher, i personally think we should switch but only after we fully trained the teachers to handle the subject competently.


Dear Sport Friends,

Regarding about the global issue H1N1 happens around the world, sadly to be informing that our UiTM International Sports Fiesta will be postponing to 19-23 November 2009.
