Revoking PPSMI is a dumb move by the Education Minister

The move that will be taken by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to revoke PPSMI thus introducing 'Dasar Memperkasa Bahasa Melayu Memperkukuh Bahasa Inggeris' (MBMMBI) is a dumb move which will backfire on the development of the students in mastering Science and Mathematics in English.

Just because he is a Tan Sri, the Deputy Prime Minister cum Minister of Education does not make him an intelligent human being!

However, the dumbest move had been reigned by Anwar Al Jub when he forced us students about 2 decades ago, to speak the STUPID Bahasa Baku which sounded more like a mentally retarded Indon lover.

A tribute to Sukma Dermawan who had been his loyal lover at that good time perhaps?

PPSMI is a policy introduced by our former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and should be left alone instead of reversing it. Tun Dr Mahathir never did anything without having a good reason behind it.

The policy is good but the bad side are the policy makers who had failed to make it work. The policy makers should move heaven and earth to make it work instead of sabotaging the policy and making it fail.

Just because a few ridiculous people like A Samad Said and the minorities in the opposition who oppose PPSMI, does not mean that opposing it is a good thing which will benefit the students.

Those people are foolish and want others to be just as ignorant as them. They like it when other people are as stupid as them because stupid people can be made donkeys for them to ride on just as those who previously attended the Bersih 2.0 illegal rally.

Moreover, just look at the number of unemployed graduates due to their inability to communicate decently with the interviewer in English.

Nullifying it will make the standards of mastery of Mathematics and Science amongst the students to be worst.

Quoting Neuroscientist Professor Ishwar Parhar, head of the Brain Research Institute at Monash Sunway in New Straits Times on 24th July 2011 in the Learning Curve Section :

"Learning Science in your mother tongue may allow you to become a scientist who does experiments in the lab.

"But if you don't have a good command of the English language, you will not be able to publish in good journals and be cited," he said.

He added, "You could probably be published in local journals without good English.

"But you would have just wasted public money because your work would not be cited and you would not have excited the world with your discoveries," he said.

"Because of the Internet, thousands of papers are made available online even before they are published in journals. How are we going to keep up if we were to translate everything before studying them?"

"Children who learn Science in Bahasa Malaysia may find it confusing trying to use the Net as a research tool because the terms may not necessarily be the same.

"And they may end up not enjoying the learning process."


  1. Setuju dengan pendapat anda.Kecewa dengan dasar kerajaan yang mudah tunduk pada desakan pembangkang walaupun PPSMI ini banyak manfaatnya.Cina-cina DAP yang mambangkang adalah untuk melemahkan pelajar-pelajar Melayu dari menguasai bahasa INGGRIS manakala PAS hanyalah Pak Turut...PKR pula ingin menonjolkan diri kononnya sebagai pejuang rakyat tanpa memperdulikan nasib bangsa....sedangkan Pak Samad anak -anaknya menuntut diluar negara adakah bahasa pengantarnya Bahasa Melayu.....?Yang ruginya anak-ank bangsa yang tidak dapat menguasai ILMU..

  2. Bro .. I wonder why the Educ Ministry doesn't want to propose both language in BM & BI in school so that the parents can choose whats best for their kids. Is it because of budget ? I will definitely choose English for my kids coz Maths & Science are universal subject.

  3. Bro/Sis Anon 7:32 PM. Cina komunis memang tak senang duduk tengok orang Melayu bertambah pandai hasil polisi PPSMI yang dicetuskan oleh Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    Bro Orang Kuala. That's because most people working for the Ministry is dumb. If they are not dumb, they won't be sabotaging a good policy.


Say whatever that is on your mind. Heck! This is a free country after all. If the racists Chinese can swear at the Malays as much as they want, we can do that as well.

However, I will not be held responsible to whatever that you have to say. The comment is solely the private opinion of the author.
