PPSMI: Sometimes Dr M makes sense

The former premier (Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) says science is a dynamic subject and it was better to teach the subject in the English language.

It is never too late if the government wants to reintroduce the Teaching and Learning of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI) in primary schools, although it has decided to fully use Bahasa Malaysia in 2016, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Labelling science subject as dynamic and moving all the time, the former prime minister stressed that it was better to teach the subject in the English language.

“You cannot keep up on science unless you understand the language in which the knowledge is coming to us. Every day there are new findings, discoveries, new theories. All these are not recorded in our language but in English.

This is at least what we want to hear from an elderly statesman and who have a better common sense than the Deputy Prime Minister cum Education Minister, whom, out of the blue, wants to abolish the PPSMI in a fickle instant without consultation or feedback from the public on its pros and cons.

He may be more interested in championing a particular race as what he had said earlier 'I am a Malay First before Malaysia First' without thought or considering the fact that the policy he wanted to change will adversely affect the people and the whole country in terms of technological knowledge, advancement and progress.

We also can see a lot of crap education in terms of history of Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak... all were just edited to change what actually ...actually happened....We have lost much because of the politics of UMNO and....their agendas!
