To ridicule Tun Dr.Mahathir seems to be the main agenda again, not only among politicians but also the so-called academicians.
THE teaching of Mathematics and Science in English started more than FIVE years ago but Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris lecturer Professor Datuk Dr Isahak Haron has just opened his eyes.
In an interview published in the New Sunday Times the born-again 'Malay Nationalist' claims that the change to English was an ’irresponsible move’, and that many students have lost out due of the policy.
The seasoned journalists who conducted the interview floated some really good arguments but the nationalist seems unperturbed, knowing well that he is just JUSTIFYING and ENDORSING a drastic move which has been decided upon.
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is going to revert the teaching of Science and Mathematics from English to Bahasa Malaysia pretty soon.
It is not a decision based on the lame and idiotic reasons discovered by the nationalist professor from UPSI but more a DESPERATE move to appease the angry Malays.
Abdullah is trying to score maximum points by portraying himself as a saviour of the Malay language, at a time when his popularity is below the deepest well in the country.
Abdullah and his goons are also enthusiastic as such a move would put Dr.Mahathir in bad light.
Just decipher the nationalist professor's response to the two questions below, and try to figure out his IQ.
Q: Would it have made a difference if the teachers had had a better command of English?
A: That will take 10 or 20 more years then.
Q: Isn't it possible to have a concurrent system? Because if you abandon things because they don't work within five years, then you can never start anything.
A: This is what Dr Mahathir's (former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad) people are talking about. They don't care about the 70 or 80 per cent of the children. All they care about is that their agenda is correct. It doesn't matter if it takes 20 years; you see his gamble?

(Dr.Mahathir's people ? Who are they Mr. (Nutty) Professor? Excuse me, are you an Umno politician from the other side of the divide ? You call yourself an educationist ? May God save our children).
p/s1 Pak Lah, Malaysians are unhappy with your TOTAL FAILURE as the Prime Minister of this country. Stop your stupid racial politics and get real. If you revert the system, thousands of students are going to suffer.
At least consult your wife, she looks a little intelligent and appears to be genuinely concerned about our children.
p/s2 Mr.Prof, you could have gone a long way through your 'ball carrying' skills but its a pity that the owner of the 'balls' is at the tail-end of his disastrous journey. I think you should go and pick-up Jawi from Lee Kim Sai.
