MAGPIE'S MESSAGE

Dear Concerned Citizens of this country,
On Wednesday 8 July 2009, The Star Newspaper Reported that:
The Cabinet has decided that the medium of instruction for Maths and Science will revert to Bahasa Malaysia in national schools and mother-tongue languages in national-type schools from 2012 onwards.

The reversal of the Teaching of Math and Science in English (PPSMI) policy will be done in stages, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said on Wednesday.

Beginning 2012, students in Year One and Year Four in primary schools, and Form One and Form Four in secondary schools, will learn Math and Science in Bahasa Malaysia.

The change will not affect those in Form Six and Matriculation.

COMMENT:
By the way, since the above report , the reversal has been fast- tracked to start in 2011 instead of 2012.
One just wonders if the reversal was made solely by considering the welfare of the students and the country at large or due to another reason/s known best to the policy makers.
As our beloved Prime Minister had said it again on 31 Mar 2010, " THE ERA OF THE GOVERNMENT KNOWS BEST IS OVER".
So much has been said that teaching science & maths in English improves the usage of the language, gives students an early exposure to the key terms & tools necessary to plug into the unfolding potential in this area. with our Prime Minister's Slogan " RAKYAT DIDAHULUKAN, PENCAPAIAN DIUTAMAKAN" the Government will listen to us if all of us are willing to stand out and be heard.

MAGPiE IS ACTIVELY PURSUING THIS MATTER & HAS TAKEN STEPS:
1. WORKED WITH THE PTA’S , PARENTS & STUDENTS OF SUPPORTING SCHOOLS ON A SIGNATURE CAMPAIGN- WHERE 15000 SIGNATURES WERE COLLECTED;

2. PARENTS WILL PUT FORWARD A RESOLUTION AT THEIR COMING PIBG AGMS TO RETAIN PPSMI IN THEIR SCHOOLS;
3. GAVE COPIES OF OUR MEMORANDUM TO THE MALACCA MP.S & THE CHIEF MINISTER OF MALACCA.
4. GAVE A MEMORANDUM TO THE PM ON 19/1/2011 FOR THE OPTION TO USE PPSMI IN PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS IN MCCA.


PLEASE LET US JOIN FORCES IN EVERY STATE AS ONE VOICE TO MAKE THIS A REALITY !
IF NOT US, THEN WHO?
IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?

TOGETHER WE SHALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!
