Pengajaran & Pembelajaran Sains dan Matematik dalam Bahasa Inggeris

So in the year 2012 Sains dan Matematik will be taught in BM.

Frankly, I oppose this decision. But for a different reason.

The Government seems to have forgotten the purpose of teaching Science and Math in English. They seem to think that teaching science and math in english is to
1) improve level of english in primary school children
2)improve the result of Sains dan Matematik in UPSR

To tell you the truth,Malaysia is the first country in the whole universe to use Science and math to improve english. Nobody have done this before ^^

"Muhyiddin said studies carried out by local universities found that students’ mastery level of English during the entire policy was around 3% while the level among rural students was low.
“Based on these observations, the Government is confident that Mathematics and Science should be taught in languages understood by students, which is Bahasa Malaysia in national schools, and Chinese and Tamil in the respective vernacular schools,” he said."- The Star

The reason Tun Dr Mahathir introduce PPSMI is for the future generation. How can the government gauge the success of PPSMI after only 6 years??? Most children who is under PPSMI is only in Form 1 now!!

Let me reiiterate the purpose of PPSMI: To make sure students are competent and familiar in the Scientific english when they are in the University and outside world

How can you use the declining UPSR results as a "strong-point" to discontinue PPSMI??


Imagine what will happen to the form 1 students now. They had learn Science and Math in English for 7 years. They will continue learning in English up to PMR level. Then in form 4, suddenly constant become pemalar, hypothesis become hipotesis, Newton's Law of Motion become Hukum Gerakan Newton (Thank goodness its not Niuten). And they will learn all this till form 5. Then, in form 6 they will learn back all these terminologies in English!
Then we will produce Rojak graduates. Not proficient in BM or BI.

Memang dah sah gomen ni stupid. Even if you want to revert the policy, wait till the pioneer batch of students under the PPSMI students to enter higher education. Assess their level of english then. If they have mastered english successfully by then, it means that PPSMI is a success. If there is no difference or worse, then by all means scrap it if you want! This is how the success of PPSMI should be assessed, not based on UPSR results! (Of course, pakcik muhydin will say "cis...budak ni tau sikit sikit, sudah trying to teach me what to do")

You scrap it in 2 years, what good will it do? We will not even see 1 Malaysia University student who have Science and Math taugh fully in English in school. We will get rojak students!

We are going down. Keep digging our grave, dear government, but don't take us along with you.

My daughter is less than 2 years old and she can understand both English and Japanese, and later will introduce Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese.

I can't see why we cannot take 1 step forward to integrate the BM textbooks few years back with the current English science and maths text books. Its a lot of effort, but why move backward instead of forward. We can allow students to use either English or BM to answer in the exams as long as the maths and science principles are correct.

Some good will surely come out of the dialectics at work between both languages instead of choosing either one. We need new advancements. We need Malaysia Boleh. Not some power struggle between languages.

When will Malaysia advance and not hold on to race and language as stumbling blocks but embrace our differences as advantages?
