Actually, the whole idea behind the move to teach Science and Maths in English is just so the politicians can feel justified in siphoning of billions of public funds - in the name of improving English - for their crony companies selling computers, laptops, big screen displays, printers etc.
Don't you know that the biggest budget every year is for education? Improve English via teaching of maths and science? If this is true, try improving your Japanese via teaching of maths and science in Japanese. Bah! This is a sheer day light roberry of public funds.
Why not try other solutions? Here are a few.
I was from a Chinese school from rural Batu Pahat with poor facilities and amenities back in 70s. I picked up English by watching Singaporean TV programmes. I did not go for tuition but I scored a strong C3 in my 121 GCE English paper GCE.
(Those days, all subjects were already taught in Bahasa Malaysia. And mind you, then we were watching black and white TV, no Astro, no CNN, no malaysiakini, no free Sun paper.) Now we have so many hi-tech facilities in place so how come we are poorer off in English?
Are our children indulging in too much in Hong Kong TV dramas which are rude and nonsensical? Who is more extreme? Young Malaysians, wake up!
