Confusion

Looking at the options offered in order to replace current policy on teaching English in Maths and Science; I realised that most of the stakeholders involved in the discussion perceived learning Maths in English and Science is the powerful platform to master in English.
Am I confused...? I hope not.

Maths and Science are two important technical knowledge and applications in practice; but master in language is something totally different. I can't imagine how learning Maths for 5 hours and Science for two hours a week would enhance language mastery among the pupis...(pelik kan?).

Language is one of the sociocultural items; but not with Maths and Science. The best choice is to allow each of us as Malaysian to vote for the best option, not only the stakeholders (Who are the current stakeholders? Based on what criteria/merit they are chosen as stakeholders?; To me, parents are the most important stakeholders).

I think we need to relook on the matter... I believe we need to have a different approach if we want our children to master the english languange, and not by having maths and science in english...

Subjek tu dahla subjek "killer", lepas tu diajar dalam bahasa omputih yang kita sendiri tak mahir.. boleh lingkup dibuatnya....

Hopefully the government can have some realistic approach to the subject matter...

Dari dulu lagi semasa polisi ini dilaksanakan, saya tak faham rasional kenapa ianya dijadikan begitu. Bagi saya, ianya sangat mengelirukan.
Ntahlah...masing-masing nak mem'baby'kan sesuatu yang baru supaya dikenang sepanjang zaman agaknya
