MALACCA: The state Education Department has allowed 13 schools in the state to continue teaching Mathematics and Science in English, marking a victory for a parents’ group which has been championing the cause.
According to Malacca Action Group for Parents in Education (Magpie) chairman, Mak Chee Kin, they had appealed for a reinstatement of the programme.
Malacca was the only state to allow all 13 schools that appealed for the dual language programme (DLP) in June to continue teaching the subjects in English.
The teachers and parents were very excited over DLP, adding that he hoped a new generation of students would be able to excel in English, which was recognised globally with even China emphasising on development of the language.
Many realise that our children could be left behind in the rapid pace of globalisation if they do not have a good command of English.
