Wise man says,only fools don't follow

Wise man says,only fools rush in.
Remember this Elvis Presley song?
During the sixties when English was the medium of teachings,it was of Cambridge standard.A Form 5 certificate would have placed you in good deed to find a good job.

From the seventies onwards,our smart alecs in the government started to change the education system for the sake of ketuanan Melayu.It was a rushed implementation without serious due consideration for the future of this country.Or should I say,they do not have the foresight of our neighbour Singapore.

Look at the differences of these two countries.
One is already a developed country while the other is struggling to be one.
Why is this so?

To paraphrase what Lee Kuan Yew said,"If Singapore has used any of the indigenous language ie.Malay,Chinese or Indian as a medium of teaching,Singapore will not be what it is today.It was English that made Singapore home to the world."
And to further quote,"There is nothing that we can do,which given time that they cannot do.So we must always move one step ahead."
Now isn't that a good foresight of a great leader who think and guide the country to greater heights?

Instead of following his good leadership,we are full of animosities.Remember we used to 'bash' Singapore over minor issues. Our idiotic politicians do not know that we need good neighbours to prosper together.

Now we are talking of changing the teaching of Science and Maths in English.And look at the mess our education system is in.We have the Vision School,Smart School and what nots.

For the sake of our childrens' education,I strongly urge the Education Ministry not to rush anymore implementations and do follow some tried and tested systems of other countries.

Many of you might not realize it,the world is already laughing at us.
Please wake-up as globalisation waits for no one.
