Sheriff : Bahasa & English.





PM Najib was considering introducing an English stream for secondary schools, as additional to the B Malaysia and Chinese medium streams but he backed off at the last minute due to political objections.

I don’t think it’s a good idea to have an additional stream based on English as a medium of instruction. Most urban parents and most non-Malays will choose the English stream, while the rural parents, mostly Malays will be sending their children to BM schools. That will hv social implications for the future generation and bad for national unity..

All schools shd be on Bahasa Malaysia stream but English shd be given more hours in the curriculum, starting at the primary level. This will mean cutting back on religious subjects at primary school and transferring the religious classes to the afternoon so as to free more time in the morning for the subjects taught in English.

We tried that system already. Let parents decide. We all speak both languages and for non Malays they speak 3.
