Singapore The Straits Times slams the overhaul of Malaysian education system.
1. Carolyn Hong expressed her mistrusts against the Malaysian government’s launch of the new school system.
2. Political interference was blamed for causing the falling standards at international level, by the changing of opinions in education policies.
3. Wan Saiful Wan Jan, a representative from think-tank Ideas, must make sure that whatever he criticized against the government’s education policies would not lead to magnanimous benefit to minority races at the expense of the rural and urban Malay populations and bumi puteras.
4. Carolyn Hong supported the idea by Wan Saiful who could pose an ‘elusive threat’ to the government as he suggested appointing a non-politician education minister. These two critics as well as others seem to be hostile towards the government.
Wan Saiful must question himself towards what directions he was aiming in order to work effectively with the government rather than focusing on unreasonable numerous demands from minority races that have always been given too much attention by the government.
Wan Saiful should acquire and keep track the progress, the strength and weaknesses of past and present generations, economically and socially, how they had contributed to the nation building that had been developing for decades. He must prepare all possibilities to rescue himself from other anti-support groups for challenging the new education system.
