Tragic funny

Errrr......teacher, teacher I very hard the misunderstanding your Engrand glamour la.

My almost 8 year old son goes to a government-type Chinese primary school. It's the only type of school that we can afford. Like other little boys of his age, he enjoys going to school. And like hundreds of thousands of other little Malaysian children he IS NOT getting the education he deserves.

While grown-ups and politicians argue about......


Who is in the sex video.
Whether it is 1Malaysia, 1Melayu, 1 Bumi.
Whether one race is supreme over another.
Whether to teach Math and Science in English, Chinese, Malay or Zwahili.

......my son and others like him are required to grapple with problems like this in their Math in English work sheets.......


"Zaini has sell 4 electric water heater which its type is instant water heater for Monday. He has sell 1 and 3 water heater on Tuesday and Wednesday. How many electric water heaters did he sell?"
Oh ya, somebody also forgot to tell this teacher that those aren't pictures of electric water heaters, instant or otherwise, they are electric kettles! Okay, okay so kettles are water heaters too. But they sure ain't the instant type, right?

NIAMAH!!!

Adoi. I did relief teaching SPM-level Biologi in a kampung secondary school in 2006, and the Kimia teacher once came to ask me "Apa itu 'binding'?" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_bond

I don't blame the teachers themselves, most of whom are good-hearted but undereducated and overwhelmed, but the moronic bureaucrats and politicians all the way up to Mahathir who thought it was a good idea to move the Earth sideways after decades of Malay-language instruction. IIRC they switched over only a year or so after the announcement right?

Rich said...

Patrick, I'm not even sure whether this is a maths question, or an exercise in how to understand really, really bad English. Still, he got the answer right!

JerryInc said...

seriously?!! who came up with the questions, the school or the education department?!!

btw, what's an instant water heater? is it something which heats the water in mere seconds? :D

Oh my goodness, SERIOUSLY? That's what appeared in the SCHOOL exams papers?

Is this happening in many other schools?

OMG! What kind of England is that?! No wonder graduates these days can't speak or write proper English.

Richard Cranium said...

Aren't you glad, then, they will soon stop teaching Maths in English?

Chet said...

Are these work sheets set by individual teachers or do they come from a standard set approved by the Ministry of Education?

Water heater is a direct translation from the Cantonese phrase for kettle - sui boh (water boil, or heat). The boh can mean pot (noun) or boil (verb).

Aiyoh, I also confused now.

These morons still got the nerve to "solve" the problem by abolishing PPSMI and teach these subjects in BM,

Without fail, this flers always have the 'talent' to make the problem even bigger.

I say, the root of the issue is to up the standard of teaching back to par and improve the bloody Engleeesssh of the teachers!

Why abolish PPSM? Talk %$#@ lah!

Any alumnus or alumna of U.M.here ?

Here in Malaysia, when the norms are all thrown into mere political considerations and sidelining every sincere,dutiful public policy. Naturally there will then be very little incentives or opportunities that will produce people of high caliber within itself. When creativity is stifled, what follows is stagnation!

World Bank senior economist Philip Schellekens on April 28 painted a gloomy picture of the Malaysian brain drain situation saying that it not only grew rapidly but is likely to intensify, further eroding the country’s already narrow skills base. Schellekens said that the number of skilled Malaysians living abroad has tripled in the last two decades with two out of every 10 Malaysians with tertiary education opting to leave for either OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries or Singapore. The report defined brain drain as the outflow of those with tertiary-level education.

The water heater is only working instantly on Mondays. On other days, it works as normal water heater.

This is a very tricky question as well. Let's assume he sold 4 kettles on Monday, 1 on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday. How many electric water heaters did he sell? Any answer is correct. Answers:
1. 0 - 'has' and 'sell' imply future or present. 'Did' implies past. Therefore, he (Zaini is a he or she?) did not sell any "water heaters" at all.

2. 4 on Monday, 1 on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday. The answer depends on which day the question is asked.

3. He sold 4 electric water heaters. The other 4 water heaters he sold on Monday were instant ones.

So many other arguements. This question was set by a genius for a genius!

When Dr Mahathir Mohamad started the Sodomy I campaign against Anwar 13 years ago, he literally tortured the Malaysian society with the embarrassment of 'sodomy'.

Now with Najib Razak's campaign to destroy Anwar, not only did he intensify the embarrassment of 'sodomy', he tortured our society with obscenity. Even legitimising it. How much do we as a nation have to continue to be sacrificed just to keep Umno-BN in power? Malaysians must wake up to this cruel reality.

That's why we shouldn't teach Maths in English.

If an adult also can't teach in proper English, why do we expect a child whose first language is probably not English to excel/grasp mathematics in English?

Ya...just because the English is horrible means the education level is deplorable. Ya right.

I'm not denying the fact that our education system has much to improve, but mocking the system just because of the horrible English (as if it explains everything) is so niamah.

The ones directly responsible for this are the teachers, although it can't be denied that governmental policy is also at fault for swinging back and forth regarding the teaching of the subjects.

Teachers have the responsibility to teach in correct languages, whether it's in English, BM, Chinese, or Tamil. Even if they're NOT language teachers.

They themselves attended schools and tertiary institutions before becoming teachers, so it escapes my logics to think that they haven't been learning any language along the way. Some teachers can't speak English so it was a slap in the face to me. I can't help but thinking, 'What have they been doing in university/college???'

I didn't go for any language program nor special government training programs, but I can speak English and BM fluently and I'm Chinese! So WTF is this shit now about teachers today need to go for special language training???

Students too, have their responsibility in their learning. Don't expect everything to come from teachers.

Relating to blog post, our education system is in deep shit and not to forget, obsolete.

Furthermore, the things we learn are totally wrong, for eg, in history, specifically the msia history.

the way the Ministry of Education is playing fast and loose with our childen’s education, the products of recent decades suggest that the education through government schools leave a gap so wide, there is so little of worth that is actually trapped in their brains.

Now this makes nonsense of all that ETP and high-income jargon that Najib and his merrymen of Putrajaya talks about. There is no need for a Talent Corporation either if the government begns a sensible education program for our children. More than half a million students pass through SPM annually, without actually ‘passing’!. Imean, how do you explain the persistent rumours that the passing mark for subjects like Add maths is about 15-18% or even less! Ok, talk about history – also 15-18%?

Now Najib sure is blowing a lot of hot air with his high-income sloganeering, and Muhyiddin sure knows his nonsense well to talk about better exam results every year he is the Minister of Education. If the passing mark is 10% or whatever, even cows do not need to study.

MCA has no respect for democracy when MCA dares to help UMNO threaten and punish Chinese voters who fail to support BN but dare not threaten and punish UMNO for its unilateral invitation to PAS to join BN to promote Malay and Islamic unity

Clearly this is a classic case of double-standards where voters are punished for practicing democracy and the freedom of choice whereas a dictatorial UMNO can escape unpunished for making unilateral decisions on BN's behalf without first consulting and getting approval from BN component members like MCA.

Najib has changed his tack in relating to the Chinese electorate. He seems to have discarded his role of the charmer who spun 1Malaysia hogwash to win Chinese hearts and minds. He is now threatening them instead.

He’s telling them that if they don’t support BN at the next general election, they will not have representation in the Government. This is because Chua Soi Lek, the MCA president, has declared that his party will not accept government positions if they don’t get Chinese support.

Najib’s switch to a threatening mode shows that he’s desperate. He clearly must be after what has happened in the recent Sarawak state elections, when the Chinese dumped the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) in favour of the Opposition. Despite Najib’s 10-day campaign in the state, the Chinese there did not show him any face. They are simply fed-up with the corrupt BN Government and they want reform. But for BN, the loss of Chinese support, especially in Sarawak, with the possible spread to Sabah, could be crucial at the next general election.

The idea of importing English language tutors is a sign of desperation and a failure of our education system. This is what happens when we appoint ministers who are not an educationist, and upon their appointment they would be thinking of what policies to make to be left as their ‘legacy’. Normally such policies are good only for the short term and it does not really matter its impact on students on the long term. The use of the Malay language itself is a sterling example.

So much emphasis has been given to BM, it's time to place more attention to English, the language of science and technology. Has any survey been done to find out the proficiency of English among the Malaysians? The standard of English in this country has dropped to a dangerous level since the introduction of the New Educational Policy during the 1970s. Worse, the sentiments against English are so strong that the teaching of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI) has to be scrapped after objections from the parents and an endorsement by the Ministry of Education.

English is an international language for knowledge, work and business. If one needs information of any kind, one could find lots of information in books and magazines written in English. Same too if one searches the internet for information, much of the information is only available in English. I do not understand why many in this country resist English. On the other hand, the BN politicians know the importance of English, so they send their children and grandchildren to international schools or overseas colleges where the medium of instruction is English while they make sure that the children of the rakyat are educated mainly in BM. What an irony?

While many countries in Asia, including China and Japan, have realised the importance of English and now encourage their citizens to learn and use English, the Bolehland seems to engage the reverse gear. I sincerely hope that BN Government will give a higher status to English.

kumitaa said...

@Laticia: I was absolutely horrified when i heard that Science and Maths were no longer going to be taught in English. And like you, I agree that English is an international language and having a good command of the language would definitely bring more good than bad. That said though, when I was talking to some friends about this issue, a lot of them brought up the fact that schools in villages struggle with the very basics of the language itself. They also pointed out that if the teachers themselves fail to understand the language, how can they possibly teach Science and Maths in a language that they cannot form proper sentences in. So, while I do think that English is important, perhaps schools should think about making teachers undergo an intensive English course or maybe introduce Science and Maths in English only in larger cities where they are more exposed to the language. Ultimately, I blame the teachers because hey, it is rather pointless having grandeur dreams only to be lacking proper guidance.
