Mathematics and Sciences Back to Bahasa and Mother Tongues

Good news........The Government has decided to reverse the Teaching of Mathematics and Science in English policy and revert to Bahasa Malaysia in national schools and Chinese and Tamil in vernacular schools. However, although it will teach Maths and Sciences in Bahasa or mother tongues, but it will more emphasis on English, including the hiring of retired teachers, assistant teachers for bigger classes and having additional periods.

Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said this meant that from 2012, students in Years One and Four and Forms One and Four in national primary and secondary schools would study the two subjects in Bahasa Malaysia while those in vernacular schools would be taught in their mother tongue (Chinese and Tamil).

According to the Education Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, There want to have a ‘soft landing’ which is why there will begin only in 2012. This will allow more time to make the necessary preparations.

No matter how, it will be a good news to all and wish there will be more good news in the future.
