hot news for this couple of days..our administrator plan to eliminate these 2 public examination, for what reason, still unclear to us. hmmm...as usual, there is pro and contra of it.
actually i want to wait for response from facebook members but seems not many interested in sharing and talking serious issue like this, i better share here whatever i have. thanks to some, for their strong opinion.
waiting for those so called intelligent people that used to heat up the wall there but none...a little bit dissapointed by this, i still want to speak up my opinion...hahaha..tidak pandai tutup mulut punya orang la..
what to do ley...my mind always full and i hate to see things goes by without sharing it with friends.
first, lets talk about the pro...
(i) maybe those student (our children will be one of them) will eased with the burden, no more pressure for them to attend extra class or tuition in the evening. less tiring for them.
(ii) parents also can relax a little bit, stop pressuring their kids to drained their brain out of their head
(iii) our administrator may be can reduce the cost and make use of the extra cost available for other purposes (mind u, the preparation of all those exam and implemantation does acquire quite a fund)
had i made a few of it? huhuhu..not enough but can't really squeze my mind right now..
lets check the contra..(i got quite a number for this morning only). to tell u the truth i was the only person in the whole day had nodded yes to this issue...hehehe....
(i) as many mentioned earlier in my fb, the quality or standard of our education is becoming lower by the idea only
(ii) some even said, maybe in the future, for there is no valuation, our students will have zero standard and everyone can be graduate easily but please don't forget, SPM is the platform to get a place in our college, not UPSR or PMR
(iii) no competitiveness among students, no target and motivation for them to perform..well i really aware of this because most of our people (through history) always need to be pushed, only then they can move forward
i thinks enough of it....but really most of people do not agree with the idea. i hope no children future will be at stake because some of our politician just want to make a name for themselves..just the same when they withdrawn the using of English in teaching Maths & Science..until now most parent that i'd heard talking about it, felt disappointed by it.
if we are so scared of challenge, of hardwork and new things, how are we going to be a developed country? if our children at the age of 15 still struggling to finish a sentence when asked to read, how are going to compete with the outside world?
we are so scared of trying new things yet we eliminates and destroyed all the old good things..i.e the SRP..well i was the 3rd batch to have the PMR, if i'm not mistaken, but many people said that SRP is more relevant and created more quality student because of the strict regulation..u failed the mandatory subject, u r not qualify to continue until u repeat the class and pass it.
even now, for SPM, the requirement to continue to lower 6 is less competitive..most the student can easily go through and proceed to lower 6 after the SPM. then when they are qualified to study in our public university or college, they were taught in BM, BUT for most of the student themselves experienced, most of the references is in English. maybe when they were out, ok when they joint the government sector for 90% of the works was done in BM BUT again, if u ready to challenge the private sector, there will the problem arise.
enough with that..i am out of the scope already..but really..why do we want to stop our own new generation to be competitive to the outside world? why do we need to overprotecting them? the more we make it easier, the harder it will be for them (our students and younger generation).
but of course, i always curious with the objectives and reasons behind all this. we, the common people will get the impact. the politicians, no wori for them..YB..banyak duit, abis form 5, antar anak pergi kolej swasta, belajar dlm English...hantar anak ke luar negara, semua lebih standard, semua dlm English but our children has no choice but to struggle with the lousy system.
ok..let me share one of the way ( i got this idea from a businessman). if your kids really excell in his/her study, and he/she is interested in continuing to further study, after they finish @ complete their SPM, if they are qualify, get them to study for A level. takes about a year to finish and many private college offer that nowadays. then after the A level, they can directly continue to Degree programme (not sure bout the public university) in any College inside or outside our country..so we can save 2 years for the Diploma programme which can take up to 6-7 years to complete until the Degree course. that is why, our children will only be able to support themselves at the age of 26-27, the earliest. for medic student, you will have to add up to another 2-5 yrs for practical..might be not very correct but i will do some research on this.
feel worry for our kids future, as a mother myself..i hope that instead of lessen the standar, our administrator should set the standard higher so our youngster will be more motivated and competitive. don't teach them to be afraid of difficulty but teach them to overcome it..
