1 Sekolah Untuk Semua


updates at the end of this posting
1 School for All. A group of pro-unity bloggers have started a campaign for Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua.

Satu Sekolah untuk Satu Bahasa, Satu Bangsa, Satu Negara.

I am going to make myself part of this group of bloggers, whether they like it or not. Because I like what they are trying to do. Mine's the 494th signature on the petition here.

I'm the product of a 1 Sekolah system. I started schooling in Singapore in 1968, a year before the May 13 racial clashes and three years after the island achieved its Independence. The government of Lee Kuan Yew went about to "integrate' all primary schools. My school on West Coast Road had a flag of blue and yellow, and for many years it was known as Jubilee Malay Primary School. By the time I went to Primary 1B, it was called Jubilee Primary (Integrated) School. They abolished the Sekolah Melayu Jubilee. Other vernacular schools around the island were systematically replaced by "integrated" schools. Singapore went for its 1 School for All and I thought that they were doing quite alright.

In Malaysia, we have let ourselves fall behind in this regards, but that gives us the benefit of hindsight. Today Malaysians regardless of race or religion (including political ideologies) want a Bangsa Malaysia. 1 Bangsa. Civil society has never demanded harder for One Race as it has been doing in the last couple of years. The government tried to lay the foundations for a Bangsa Malaysia under Wawasan 2020 and there were attempts earlier, including the Bangsa Malaya concept dreamed up by Usman Awang and his Asas 50 friends after the War and just before Merdeka.

Time to join all past and present efforts towards that. Time to walk your talk.

Start with the kids. Integrate. Lets' have 1 School.

Read and Sign the petition again h e r e.

Please also paste the logo at the top of your blogroll so that the Education Minister won't miss it! Attached here is the open letter to the Education Minister "to implore the government to seriously look at the current multi-stream educational anomaly with an eye towards forging a singular Sekolah Kebangsaan for all Malaysians".

p.s. Thank you, KijangMas for initiating the campaign. But I believe we'll need to bring this initiative out of cyberspace into the real world, too.

Updates and Must Read:
1. Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua: Is there a reason to say NO?
2. SSUS by I am A Malaysian [in New Zealand], h e r e:
"Do I think that vernacular schools are the main reason why our society is so broken up, and so racially segregated? No, I don’t think so (but) ...."

Sdr Rocky Bru',
Tak mungkin apa yang berlaku di Singapura akan terjadi di Tanah Air ini.

Ia seumpama cuba nak mengajar agama lain kepada yang lain bagi Pejuang-pejuang kesasteraan TiongHua. Walaupun ini bukan isu keagamaan, ia seolah-olah isu pengajaran, pemikiran.

Walaupun ada banyak ibu-bapa Melayu hantar anak-anak nya masuk sekolah Cina pada masa kini. Tetapi, tolong fikirkan kalau Kerajaan ini paksa semua ibu-bapa Melayu hantar semua anak-anak mereka mengaji di sekolah Cina, apa akan terjadi?

Begitu lah juga pemikiran ibupapa-ibubapa Perjuang Kesasteraan Cina di Tanah Air ini.

Konsep Satu Bangsa dan Satu Bahasa telah pun cuba di perlaksanakan pada tahun 60'an, tetapi gagal hingga sekarang.

Adakah sekolah Wawasan yang di tubuhkan pada 10 tahun dahulu tercapai matlamat yang diingini?

Sesiapa yang ingin hidupkan pemikiran ini adalah amat remaja sekali, seumpama katak di bawah tempurung.

Ini lah dari sudut pandangan saya.

Are u suggesting , we abolish Malay, Tamil & Chinese schools as was done in your lifetime in singapore ? Is that what you signed for ? I will join you to support if you could clarify first what is going to be the medium of instruction in the " 1 Sekolah untuk semua " ?

Rocky,
So much flip flop on Singapore. Is it because you have realised that Singapore is trying to give coverage to Najib, your master.
Anyway, we will tell Singaporeans the truth about Najib. Singapore government. They knew all along......Don't play play with all unfinished Bilateral issues.
Especially Temasek Holding loses 30 Billion. Wanna suck more from countries like Malaysia. Nothing wrong with that. Rocky bru, you jaga your perut. My CPF savings increases when Temasek finally got back all the "lost" money

bro,

LKY knows it from the beginning.

Only in Malaysia in the whole world we have these education system. and for what reason they want it, only God knows.

so stop asking for reducing bumi quota if they don't want to accept the basic 1 school system.

tough we need some adjustment, but the nations should come first.

Vish said...

Perhaps the effort of 1Sekolah could be taken more seriously if it was extended to include tertiary education too.

As it is, the proposal seems to be incomplete, at best.

Forcing children to go through a standardized 'one stream' path, only to face discrimination at the end of it, i.e. when they graduate high school and look to Colleges Universities, seems like it would be counterproductive to integration.

Maybe if everyone started looking at our diversity as a strength instead of a weakness, there'd be less 'half-boiled' initiatives such as this one, and more strident steps forward could be taken.

It is sad to see that some people just can't grasp the fact that unity isn't only achieved if everyone thinks, talks, and acts exactly the same.

-Vish.

BrightEyes said...

While I believe we should aim for a single school system (yes, that means integrating the MRSMs & SBPs which they conveniently left out) ...

...If you wrap garbage in a nice present wrapper, its still garbage. It still smells like garbage, and you'll find garbage below the nice facade...

That is my take on this so-called Bangsa Malaysia these people are pushing. If you bother to read...

It really has nothing to do with reducing racial barriers and different treatment in this nation.

It has everything to do with getting the "Non's" to accept their lot in life, and not question the status quo.

The irony is this project tries to solve a problem by eliminating one root cause with the goal that the people will not see the nine other bigger root causes.

Give me the Real McCoy... at Haris Ibrahim's place.

Had a quick look at the petition and noticed that people who signed the petition are overwhelmingly Malay. We can safely make an interpretation out of that…on second thought maybe anon are non-Malays..no??

Anonymous said...

I admit it, this sounded like a good idea...but I'm sure many out there, like me would be reluctant to accept this concept. If you had been a student in any primary or secondary school in Malaysia for the past 10 years, you'll understand that the rift between schools of different systems in Malaysia are so great, it's difficult to imagine how would our lackluster ministry of education merge all school under one singular system. I mean, who and base on what would one decide what from which system should be adapted and which to discard, it would be difficult to please all sector of our society.
I think I speak for most students when I say the education system in Malaysia right now, is a tad unfair to say the least. So why give the boys in charge more means to make it even more so? Nothing good will come out of this as long as education in Malaysia is being 'toyed' by our so-called 'leaders' whom view it as a political tool.
In my humble opinion, this is a very short-sighted solution to the educational woes of our country. Much research, studies and surveys MUST be done before one should even come up with such an idea. This is no laughing matter, and I am taking this very seriously. Our country, its background and its culture is unique, so why should we compare ourselves to other countries? Instead of petitioning for a change, why don't we ask ourselves, what went wrong to the current educational system? What made our proud country loses its competitiveness in a global scale over the years? Does a 1Sekolah concept automatically means a better Malaysia? You tell me.

Before you judge, I am a Malay currently studying overseas who has seen the ugly side of our education form the outside. These are just my personal views.

Dear Mr. Rocky,

I am fully in support of one school for all and have signed the petition.

However, I have SERIOUS problems with the more specific aims and hope that you can bring it up with the organisers. Firstly, why is it that we must abolish vernacular schools only and not other schools like MARA etc. which are as predominantly Malay as vernacular schools are predominantly non-Malay. Both have to go to achieve the aim.

Secondly, the Chinese and Tamil language and culture have to be preserved in this one school system, and questions are to be raised how this is to be done. PErsonally, I will abolish Moral studies and Islam studies from the main stream curriculum and replace them with the language classes for ALL. Sure, students may take the earlier mentioned classes as outside options similar to POL, but to have them in the main stream, dividing students by race, runs contrary to what you seem to envision.

The letter to the DPM also seems to be VERY anti-non-Malays, and seems more concerned with actually protecting the Malay power instead of wanting what is best for all. I urge you to tell the petitioners to reconsider this, because by sending a letter like this will garner more opposition than support, even from those who genuinely support the main goal. There are severe racial undertones from the letter in my eyes. For example, I see no reason why they must state that they want the Malay culture preserved instead of the Malaysian culture.

I hope to hear your feedback on this. Thank you

Rocky,

I had followed your blog for some time now. Never bothered to leave a comment...after a quick look at the petition you gave me a very good reason to do so and stop visiting this site, period. This post basically signals that you are nothing more but just another Malay Supremacy nuthead. Remember all those journalism crap that you moan about all the time? You should be ashamed of yourself.

In theory it sounds good. But can we look into the details.
- Medium of instruction is English!In Singapore there are second language/mother tougue that is thought to all students. Also any religion of the choice by the student. If this is as done in Singapore I am all for it!Other points that need to be implemented would be:
- We do not want little mullah's trying to make all students follow set rules based on their own religion and culture of choice.
- Scholarships and others should be based on merits.Students get financial aid etc based on need not race.
- All students go through same system to go to the uni. No STPM and Matriculation system. Just adapt one for all.
- No racist teachers. Racists slurs should takken seriouly and charges spelled out clearly.
- Teachers get promotions based on merits and not based on race.
- No/ abolish MSM etc exclusively meant for certain race.

If all these are met I am sure all malaysians would go for it except those who would loose out.Now lets examine who will lose out if one system is implemented the way Singapore has done.You think who will NOT support it!

Rocky please grow up. Put terms and clearly and ensure it is implemented. Don't treat non Malays like some idiots or pendatangs for the rest of our life. All of us pay taxes and we are all humans. Treat us like humans before putting forward ideas. Convice us that we all all treated equal in the eyes of law as Malaysians first!

I'm a product of the Sekolah Kebangsaan and I would love to see this 1 Sekolah Untuk Semua Concept come true. However,I hope you do realise that our present Sekolah Kebangsaan system needs plenty of fine-tunings and revamps. Otherwise, it the 1 Sekolah Untuk Semua concept will only be another dream. I will elaborate later on. Need to catch up on sleep!

Btw, Syed Akbar Ali posted an enviable 360 degrees view on this issue some time back when Mukhriz brought it up. Do check it out guys.

Thanks to the NEP which was started in 1970 when corporate ownership by ethnic Malays was only 2 percent.

It now stands at around 19 percent. The Bumis (corporate and individuals) today are going into many business sectors never once thought possible.

And thanks too to the new technologies made available to us!

The 37-year-old New Economic Policy gives a host of privileges in motivation, training, jobs, education and business opportunities/exposures to the Bumiputras and

INSYAALLAH, hopefully will double or triple this percentage within the next 30years.

Efforts should be made to further enhance these privileges, for the sake of our future generation. NO COMPROMISES.

Kita membuka cadangan MEMPELAWA mereka supaya tampil bersama membina Masyarakat dan Rakyat yang mudah berkomunikasi dan berinteraksi antara satu sama lain!

Anggaplah ini sebagai satu pengorbanan dan satu penghormatan dari kaum Bumiputra.

However if the Non Bumis are trying hard to isolate themselves, so let them be. Don’t blame us in future…

Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua!

I am for a one-school system but looking at the present system it wont work. The present national schools have been turned into a madrassah of sorts by over-zealous little napoleons. Non-Malays generally do not feel welcome. They feel as if as they are unwanted in a different envoronment. The school system during the sixties was different. It was a world apart from the present system. It will only work if there is a sea change. Is the Barisan prepared to go for it? So please Rocky, cast away your emotions and face raality.

Rocky, Thanks for giving us a great idea. Singapore education had serve them well and now they are the wealthiest country in Asia, Malaysia is still a poor country.

Yes yes, lets abolish Malay, Tamil & Chinese schools and set up English school like singapore to move the population forward.

Singapore has an objective of giving the best education to their kids and they choose the language that is most used internationally and most dynamic.

The most important & widely used language is English and Mandarine being the most increasingly important would be the choice for a country who want to move ahead.

Drop those language that is 3rd world, they can only serve us in our market or Kopi talk. This would do Malaysia good and I too support 1 School for all.

Don't forget our most educated Malay got his education from Singapore international school and follow by Oxford, now he is the head of UMNO youth. We want every Malay and every citizen to be as educated as our UMNO youth head, at least they are given the oppotunity. Our education Minister had a great education in his early days too, he was educationed in England. It will be disaster if we design something totally different and push it down the throad of all Malaysian. Malaysian should be given the best education so that they can emulate the success of our eduction minister and our UMNO youth leader.

Being a Malay I have to bring this up, this are all attempt for the elit Malays to monopolize English to themselve and family. Look at who are the most educated Malays? KJ, Tun M, Najib & cousin, including Rocky etc etc they all speak perfect English and another thing is they never will admit that English has helped them.

This elit hypocrite will educate their children in best English school, send them to oversea universities but they will hope that others will not be able to do the same.

So here you go, they want everyone else to stuck in the shit hole which they say is good for the Malays.

current situation today, the chinese keep chinese school, indian keep tamil school, the malay keep the sekolah agama, mara school and hold majority in SPB. looking at the current situation, it is rather hard to achieve 1 school for all.

however, i agree that we should pursue this idea. all national school should be integrated into one, with all school have their session in the morning. In the afternoon, the chinese go for chinese school, the indian go for tamil school, and the malay go for kelas agama. gov to convert all sekolah berasrama penuh (agama) to sekolah berasrama penuh (sains) and the student population to reflect the malaysian population.

there will be many private schools coming out to cater for the demand of parent who refuse to send their children to national school, be it chinese school, tamil school or sekolah agama. this should be allowed but to keep it minimum. the same as mara school, which should be treated as private school and the number should also kept to minimum.

it is still a long way, but we should have the vision and start somewhere.

So it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out.

Sokong whole heartedly!

But the question that begs asking is, is it the rejection of everything that is done in Bahasa Malaysia that has propelled the increased demand for vernacular schools? Or is it the rejection of the educational pedagogy that our children experience in the National Schools? What about the syllabi? Do you accept that history is like 60% Islamic in its influence and character and the rest Malaysian as defined by UMNO?

What about the early introduction to racist and religious polarisaton that is introduced through the reckless behaviour of teachers and the Uztazs? I recall, MM saying she had to rescue her child from such an environment for the very same reasons. But she had a choice..not many of us do.

1 Sekolah Untuk Semua is all nice and wonderful. But it carries with it the same dangers that the present National Schools present to our children. What I would suggest is greater independence of schools where communities take charge of their own schools and communities determine the kind of pedagogy that shall prevail in those schools. Also let communities accept or reject the kind of syllabi that is thrust upon them by the politically motivated Ministry of Education. Then we talk.

I would like to see the vernacular schools abolished. The excuses given for their presence and need is rather pathetic. But when I see parents from English speaking homes where Tamil or Chinese is not even spoken choosing to send their kids to these vernacular schools, it is not because they want their kids to learn "mother tongue". It is basically a rejection of the National Schools for everything that they have turned out to be. 1 Sekolah Untuk Semua is all nice and wonderful. But if it is only going to mean the perpetuation of the National Schools as we see them now, you can very well bet it will be rejected. What I'd say, is, let the National Schools compete with the vernacular schools. Compete by doing it better. Compete with offering something that is better. Compete with something that the people will want. Trying to force it upon the people will only be rejected yet once again.

I admire and appreciate this move. But let us first look at what has gone wrong. Then let us do it on a fair play basis. I know it can be done. For that to happen there has to be greater autonomy in school administration. Will the UMNO led government be prepared for this? I doubt it.

SATU SEKOLAH UTK SEMUA!!!put ur words into action


Tidak ada mana mana negara di dunia yg terlalu bagi muka kepada kaum pendatang seperti Malaysia yg ada Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan, berita pun dalam bahasa ibunda, ada cuti utk perayaan etc etc...Malaysia je yg terlalu baik hati...kat England yg konon champion hak asasi manusia pun imigran indian pun takde sekolah tamil...


Macam mana rakyat Malaysia nak bersatu kalau sedari kecil mereka cuma bercampur dgn 'their own kind'...bagaimana mereka boleh panggil diri sebagai anak Malaysia sedangkan nak bertutur satu ayat dalam bahasa Malaysia dgn betul pun tak boleh...mcm mana nak buang sifat prejudis antara kaum bila ada kaum yg besar kepala nak impose minority culture kepada majority?..


Buktikan keikhlasan anda utk menjadikan Malaysia negara yg betul betul harmoni dan berbilang kaum dan bukan sekadar 'superficially multiracial'


Bahasa Malaysia mesti jadi bahasa perantara..Matapelajaran Sejarah mesti diperkemaskan dan diberi perhatian so semua kaum tahu asas pembentukan negara berdasarkan tolak ansur kaum pribumi...dan sy sokong bahasa optional Mandarin dan Tamil so semua kaum Melayu pun dpt belajar extra languages

Sdr Rocky,
Setelah sekian lama mengikuti dan membaca blog saudara dan inilah kali pertama saya meninggalkan komen.
Saya sebagai seorang RAKYAT MALAYSIA amat amat menyokong "1MALAYSIA" dan juga amat menyokong "1 SEKOLAH UNTUK SEMUA".
Bagi mencapai dan merealisasikan hasrat PM, bagi saya memang perlu kita adakan "1 Sekolah Untuk Semua".
Sebagai RAKYAT MALAYSIA dengan BAHASA KEBANGSAAN adalah BAHASA MALAYSIA adalah amat MEMALUKAN jika TIDAK TAHU & TIDAK PANDAI berbahasa Malaysia.
Saya terpanggil untuk membuat komen ini apabila terdengar berita di TV3 malam tadi yang mana Menteri Pengangkutan telah melancarkan KURSUS & UJIAN PSV/GDL dalam Bahasa Inggeris dengan ALASAN ramai pemandu teksi berBANGSA CINA TIDAK TAHU/FASIH BERBAHASA MALAYSIA. Selain itu para pemimpin diperingkat kerajaan juga WAJIB mengetahui Bahasa Malaysia dengan baik.
Bagi saya keadaan atau senario seperti ini tidak sepatutnya berlaku, kerana anda sebagai RAKYAT MALAYSIA WAJIB mengetahui Bahasa Kebangsaan Negara Malaysia Tercinta.
Saya di sini bukan seorang yang racist, tetapi lebih cintakan tanah air dan negara saya.
Dimanakah letaknya Identiti MAlaysia jika bukan pada BAHASA dan BANGSANYA. Jika kita lihat sejak akhir-akhir ini ramai dikalangan kaum Cina dan India tidak tahu berbahasa Malaysia. Kenapa? dan Mengapa? Jawapannya kita perlu berbalik kepada sistem pendidikan negara kita. Jika kita semua tidak mahu suatu hari nanti Bahasa malaysia dilupakan dan dipinggirkan di negaranya sendiri maka, ubahlah.. MAJUNYA SESEBUAH NEGARA ITU KERANA BAHASANYA.

Rocky, judging by the comments that I have read here and elsewhere, I think masih ramai bukan Melayu yang masih dalam denial about this campaign. Of course Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua means JUST THAT.. no vernacular schools, but I would believe Mandarin and Tamil would be electives while BM and English would be among the core subjects. Susah sangat ke nak paham atau simply not patriotic enough to sokong such move towards total integration? if the latter is true, sahlah "cakap tak serupa bikin" re Bangsa Malaysia.

Dear racist animals,

it says a lot when about your sense of nationalism when you rejected this 1Sekolah concept.

Our children has suffered so much because they don't mix with other races, therefore ending up being ignorant people like you.

The most important pillar in a country is the education system. In order to move forward and become a developed country we need a very strong and fair education system. An education system for all Malaysian.

Once they learn to mix with other races, then only they will know how to appreciate each other cultures. Who says anything about destroying other races languages because im sure they'll still have other language classes at the same time, but that is by choice.

This will be one step closer to a better malaysia because it will reduce the number of social problems in our society i.e mat rempits and etc.

and perhaps, the govt should consider more options for those students who don't do well in their exams so they can do something good with their talent. For instance, introduction to music school, arts and drama colleges and etc. or sports school.

By then, I'm sure only there will be a need for our disfunctional sports ministry. =p students needs more options.

Anonymous said...

Before we talk of the 1 sekolah untuk semua, we need to figure out is this an objective or is this a task. If this is a task - then it would mean we have to change all chinese and tamil schools (SRJKC and SRJKT) into SK (sekolah kebangsaan).

The problem with this is SK is not held in high esteem among the chinese. The chinese parents think it is of a lower standard to the SRJKC. In many respect they are not too far from the truth.

If this is an objective -- then we need to make the SK better and perceived as better than the SRJKC.

Then the chinese parents would be sending their children to SK. Then the objective is met.

Even then, se still cannot change SRKJC into SKs. The MCA would not allow that.

That would not be a big issue. The chinese parents would gladly ignore the SRJKC if they know the SK are better for their children's education. This was what heppened when the SKs were usaing English as the medium of instruction.

The big issue is when is the SK going to be better than the SRJKC schools. Do we know how?

Sdr Rocky,
Since independance, attempts at the assimilation and integration of the different races to form a "Malayan Society" often collude.

Each race form its own Great Wall to preserve their own identity, culture (and religion). It,s human nature or "fitrah", that "charity begins at home"- meaning taking care of your own kin,relative next, creed, and so forth.

Hatred, prejudice and mistrust form
the core negative values in every human being. The first one can easily be dismissed, cos either you hate them or love them.

Its the prejudice and mistrust that always form the stumbling block at any attempt to integrate a society that have different values.

The first question everyone would ask about this Satu Sekolah Satu Bahasa is..what will be the Bahasa?

Yes, Singapore has successfully implement this system, but tell me really, if the population of the Malays in Singapore is 40%, just as much as the percentage of non Malays(Bumis) of Malaysia, would Singapore be as what she is now?

The small Chinese population in Thailand has totally immersed in the Thai culture because of their common Bhuddist religion.

I am a Malay and I have lived under one roof with a Chinese family since birth.

I am all for Satu Bangsa satu Bahasa but I still feel that it is still an early day.

Syabas,an excellent campaign!

I know you may not be popular for this but like you I do believe that one school will solve our unity problem.

If the Malays really wants unity,they should stop the sekolah Agama and if the Chinese and Indians wants unity they must close down their Chinese and Indian Schools.

Here's a suggestion.In the mornings they all go to ONE SCHOOL.But in the afternoons they shall continue with their Mandarin,Tamil and Islamic classes in the same location.A whole day affair.

It is being done at the Private Intergrated Islamic Schools and their success rate are very good.They excel in the SPM and O'levels plus the Islamic studies.

Tak percaya,go and visit the Sekolah islam Adni di Taman Sri Ukay.

The same can be done for Mandarin and Tamils studies.

Otherwise,UNITY talks are for politics only can can never be achieved.

Anonymous said...

Dear Rocky,

Thanks for highlighting the petition, but I am not sure I can agree with the petition content.

I bet if international schools in Msia charge a low fee, all parents would enroll their kids in these places.

Why?

Firstly, we know these places are run by teachers of all races and their only interest is meritocracy.

Secondly, it is a neutral learning ground untainted by racial and religious intonation.

The problem in SK schools is, there's just too much racial and religious hooplas implemented by little Napoleons and headmasters. Just as Malays fear to enroll their kids in SJK bcoz they think non-halal food may be served in the canteens, non-Malays fear their kids will be indoctrinated by Malay culture.

It's easy for Malays to say "all Msians must support and go to 1Msia schools" bcoz they know Malay culture will be dominant in the schools. The anti-non-Malay petition letter and signatories are proof.

But don't get me wrong. I do believe if implemented without racial and religious intonation, the 1Sekolah concept is the best way to groom kids. Forget NS. A few months of get-together won't do much.

If one analyze the annual exam results, SJK students usually out-do SK students by a huge margin. This has to do with how the schools are run. Now, if SK schools can buck up and be on par with SJK or better, without doubt non-Malays will send their kids to SK schools. Racial argument is one thing but who wants their kids to fall behind? Every parents want the best for their kids.

My job involves rural areas. I can also see Malays point of view. There are poor Malay parents who cannot afford tuitions, kelas mengaji, fardu ain and kifayah. Hence, when SK provides these classes, the government is actually lessening their financial burden. Countryside Malays see religious studies, ilmu dunia dan akhirat, as priority. A school is only wholesome if it provides such classes. Generally, I'd rather see kids going to formal religious classes than going to pondoks run by rogue ustazs.

The non-Malays pulak see culture and religion as a personal thing and rather not mix it into formal education. Education is purely for career making.

My solution is: Run all schools like international schools, without race bias, but continue to give extra religious classes in the afternoons.

And someone please find out why SK schools are falling behind? The answers could be pivotal.

Bring up the standards of the national school to a much higher lever and all parents will be fighting among themselves to enrol their children into the national school.

If the quality and the standard of the national school is low, the teachers are unmotivated, too religiously inclined, ini tak boleh, itu tak boleh, then tak payah lah.

If the national school cannot be competitive, then no need to insist others to lower their standard. This is not the 'instant mee solution'. You want unity, screw the political party based on race. If the adults themselves cannot unite, you think the childrens will go against the adult?

A worthwhile campaign and a worthwhile goal. Provided it is impleented fairly and properly. The Singapore model is eminently suitable to our situation here in Malaysia. If we want to be a modern first world, the goal posts is already there in Singapore. the "kampungs" must come up to the 21st cenury, not the 21st century receding to a "kampung" level. Change we must.


Ahiruddin, if you all do succeed in this campaign, do follow up to ensure fairness in implementation. (Mr Muhyiddin, please ake note)

Ensure, without fail, politics is TAKEN OUT out of our education system. No ifs, no buts. let the professional educationists do their job.

Rocky,

This is going to further aplit the country and decimate it. It is going against the constitutional guarantee of freedom of mother tongue education enshrined in it.

You have just violated the Sedition Act.

I agree for a 1 Malaysia in all spjeres of life, not only one that suits one ethnic group. However, I as a non-malay would agree to it IF:

1. All scholarships are strictly based on meritocracy i.e. the top scoerers will be given them. If 900 out of a thousand scholarships go to non-Malays, it must be accepted.
And abolish the matriculation schools which has 99% bumis. And open ITM to all on merits.

2. All promotions in civil service, universities, armed forces, etc be made striuctly on merits, NOT race. Now, don't come around telling me it already is because YOU should know it is not.

3. STOP giving discounts to bumis buying houses. Give to only poor Malaysians

4. And remove the special privileges clause in the constitution.

5. Allow non-Malays to be MBs and PMs.

Over to you, Rocky.

Personally, I think Najib should keep all the quotas. To cut across the existing racial divide, "open tenders for all" would have made more sense. It would probably save the government lost of money in these trying times. Generally, even Rukunegara has been compromised (what is lef tnow is to blame someone else). Remember the words we spoke in unison with our right hands held up every time the assembly was called? Ah, they are just memories now.

Why don't they let the systems exist as they are? It's not as if the world is collapsing in on our school system. Our students do just fine; every year we see good results and Malaysian students gaining places in world renowned institutions - some even opt to stay close to home despite getting good results. (This is the part where placement, scholarships etc. come into play - and the difference in treatment is there for all to see). Some are even achieving these results in world acclaimed exams such as ACCA, ICSA, and CIMA. So I say let it be.

1Sekolah Untuk Semua sounds like another UMNO project to me. Fact is, starting with the schools is getting it the other way around. Their system of using teachers and the PSD is already ingrained within. I don't see this as a way forward for Malaysia, just a way forward for UMNO. They have already sold out the Sekolah Agama Rakyat just to spite PAS. Why should vernacular schools follow suit?

Maybe they should start with the political parties instead. If this "vision" is coming from the top echelon of BN leaders and agreed upon by them, then abolish the race-based parties and form 1Party to see their sincerity to this "noble" end. Others will be quick follow. But, nah....

UMNO dominated schools have not been a catalyst for excellence and unity as now, why penalise other education streams for not subscribing to this mediocrity? In fact, results wise, have they not shown any marked superiority to vernacular schools at all. So to me, this looks like another UMNO move to bring the whole system under their control, god forbid.

Salam.. nak minta pendapat tuan tenteng keratan akhbar dibawah,adakah TH dah tersasar daripada landasan nya kerana mengejar keuntungan??

Desak TH turunkan tambang haji
KUALA LUMPUR 17 Mei – Tabung Haji (TH) digesa menimbangkan semula keputusan menaikkan kadar tambang 11 peratus untuk musim haji tahun ini.

Kebanyakan pihak termasuk orang ramai menyifatkan kenaikan itu agak membebankan dalam suasana ekonomi yang tidak menentu ketika ini.

Timbalan Yang Dipertua Persatuan Ulama Malaysia, Datuk Md. Saleh Md. Ahmad berkata, berikutan suasana ekonomi sekarang agak membebankan rakyat, TH perlu mempertimbangkan kenaikan tersebut.

‘‘Kenaikan ini agak membebankan bagi mereka yang berpendapatan rendah, sekarang ini semua kos telah meningkat,’’ katanya ketika dihubungi di sini.

TH dalam kenyataannya kelmarin mengumumkan, kadar bayaran tambang tahun ini akan dinaikkan sebanyak 11 peratus berikutan peningkatan kos yang tidak dapat dielakkan.

Ini bermakna bakal jemaah akan dikenakan bayaran sebanyak RM9,980 seorang berbanding RM8,973 ketika ini.

Sementara itu, Setiausaha Agung Persatuan Pengguna (FOMCA), Muhammad Sha’ani Abdullah berkata, kenaikan perlu berpatutan sekiranya ia tidak dapat dielakkan.

‘‘TH perlu menimbang semula kadar ini dan kalau boleh beri subsidi kepada mereka yang berpendapatan rendah,’’ katanya.

Sementara itu, tinjauan Utusan Malaysia di sekitar Lembah Klang mendapati kenaikan itu mendapat reaksi negatif daripada orang ramai.

Seorang pembantu tadbir Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB), Norani Salleh, 52, menyifatkan kenaikan tersebut terlalu tinggi.

‘‘Sepatutnya jika jika tidak boleh dielakkan, naikkan sedikit demi sedikit,’’ katanya.

Seorang kakitangan awam, Mek Rogayah Hamzah, 53, juga tidak bersetuju bayaran tambang itu dinaikkan berikutan kegawatan ekonomi sekarang.

‘‘Tabung Haji sepatutnya memahami kesusahan rakyat yang terpaksa menanggung beban kos sara hidup yang semakin tinggi,’’ katanya.

Pemilik kedai pakaian, Kamal Bahari Abd. Rashid, 41, pula berkata, kadar tambang tersebut tidak sepatutnya dinaikkan berikutan keadaan ekonomi yang masih tidak stabil.

‘‘Perkhidmatan menunaikan haji sepatutnya tidak dijadikan sebagai perniagaan. TH sepatutnya membantu mereka yang ingin menunaikan haji,’’ katanya.

Pemilik sebuah restoran, Zarina Abdul Hamid, 37, juga berpendapat, kadar baru itu tidak munasabah.

Dear Rocky,

You don't have to kill the SJKs. All you have to do is make the SK's better than the SJKs. The parents WILL send their kids to the better school, language or no language.

It's simple. Can the government run the SKs better? If they can, parents will automatically send them there anyway (win!). If they can't, what makes you think they can accomplish a MUCH HARDER task (ie. convince the Chinese and Indians to abolish SJKs)?

Unfortunately, it looks to me that the writer's of this petition have it backwards. They think that the Chinese send their kids to SJKs because we want to preserve our "culture". This is bollocks. A bazillion Malaysian Chinese emigrate to Australia, NZ, US, UK every year, without giving a thought to whether these countries have a SJK (they don't!). The reason why Malaysian Chinese fight for the SJK is because of the perception that the SJK provides a higher quality of education vs. the SK. Change this perception, and everyone will enroll their kids at the SKs. No coercion, petitions, long impassioned blogs necessary; just lots of work and well executed policies.

Ministry of Education, the ball is in your court.

leekh said...

Let a hundred flowers bloom. The thinking behind the Razak Education Report was that the medium of instruction maybe different. What is important is the content of the curriculum.
Since then the government had gone on to change the curriculum and caused all the nons moving out! All this revolves around religion. The religious teachers as a whole are extremist lot. Once they got the upper hand, the schools have all become over religious.
It is clear that if schools focus and concentrate on education, like they do in the Jenis Kebangsaan schools more and more children regardless of race or religious background will come in. Now schools start with Islamic prayers, lessons start with Islamic prayers, examination start with Prayers, food must be halal but only Islamic halal, dress must be Islamic guided. The talk always is - oh this is Malay land..you dont like you can leave! Will the Malays send their children to a place that is all Hinduism, Christianity etc? Since Spore is mentioned, take a look. Are they "Confucianising" the schools? If you look at the demands of the Muslim students' demands for Islamic facilities in the west...you will say ..wah this minority group is too much..separate prayer area, special places to wash, special place to worship, special kitchen....
The majority Malays here are already saying that nons are demanding "too much"..we are giving them a lot of face.....I suggest all Malays put your hands on your heart, open your eyes...
Truly, honestly you guys signing the petition dont want to be Malaysians first..but you want Malays first!
One school is good. But Science Schools for Malays must be maintained. One school is good, but MARA colleges must be maintained. One school is good, but all must be like Islamic schools and Islamic values. Islamic food etc etc...One school but rich Malay kids get scholarship. Poor non-Malay kids are "rich" so not eligible so scholarship. Book loan 100% for all Malay kids - all the guys coming in chaffeur-driven mercedes also get..whah nons...father earn above RM2000 cannot get...you can convert me but I cant tell you about my religion. Children are learning about injustice, they understand discrimination..when they complained of marginalization..the Minister threatened them for talking nonsense. They have no voice.....

What is the purpose of 1 school?
Let a hundred flowers bloom. Just make sure we teach universal values, equality for all mankind, love and respect for differences, work hard to create wealth, no corruption....

CHEERs 11.24am, you made lots of demands. But would you too demand the chinese:

1. stop discriminating against non-chinese when employing, and provide equal promotion opportunity promotion for all.

2. stop using chinese/dialects in their business organizations so that others can fit in.

3. stop the practice of 2 tier pricing; i.e. standard price for all, discounted price for "kaki-lang" chinese. This happens at car workshop to contruction materials to wholesale of vegetables to distribution of...everything. You think we don't know aa?

4. stop the practice of "buying products and services from another chinese only". The chinese only eat a malay restaurant or shop at malay grocery or buy car from indian salesman when he has no choice. This one also you think we don't know aa?

5. All chinese businesses should open doors to others to do business with them, not just doing business another chinese.

6. All members of chinese chambers of commerce, business associations and guilds should be transparent in their employment and business to business practices; to ensure equal opportunity for all Malaysians.

Difficut isn't it? Admit it laa friend, the great wall has been in place since yap ah loy's days, nothing is going to change. You wanna take, you must also give.....

Agree, there should be no restriction if private initiative wish to set up an Islamic, Chinese and tamil school in the afternoon session.

Agree , open up MARA and Uitm with a ratio of 70:30

But to the Chinese and Indian commuity we the bumiputra only wish is;
Can you be truly honest with yourself in our society?

Can you stop, avoid or at least minimise your racist, cheating, bribing and other criminal activity?

Dear Can See Clearly 12:56 PM,

I spoke only about the government expenditure which is all taxpayers' money including mine. According to Mahathir, 80% of the taxes are from non-Malays. I can demand what I think is my right from the government under the circumstances.

But what I eat and where I eat with my own money is my basic choice and mu business.

Where I buy my goods from is my choice, i go to where there is efficient delivery and cost efficiient whether it's owned by malays, indian or chinese.

When a private enterprise is mine and run with my hard-earned money or my father's money, I have every right and the absolute say on who I want to employ as my manager, driver or cleaner. Because that is my money.

But the government operates my money, remember that.

Think more deeply lah....Not just scratch the surface.

Untuk pengetahuan dan peringatan kepada semua, Bahasa Kebangsaan sebagaimana yang termaktub di dalam Perlembagaan Negara ialah Bahasa Melayu.

Hi Rocky,
Its NOT about the TYPE of school that are a concern for most parents. Its the QUALITY and STANDARD of education that is the major concern. The QUALITY and STANDARD is most SRK n SMK are so low that parents look for better quality n standard. The venacular schools offer better quality and standard. Thus its natural that parents are attracted to it. Thus, I would think its better to have a campaign to improve the Quality n Standard of SRK n SMKs. With this, you will automatically achive the 1School objective. Else, it will never happen. The authorities should stop confusing our patriotism and love for our country with elements of improvements that we seek for our children.

I am of the opinion that vernacular schools flourish BECAUSE parents lost faith in the quality of the mainstream schools.

It's about QUALITY - first ensure this exists in mainstream education then parents will flock back and the vernacular schools will die a natural death, no?

Excuse me but have not the current mainstream schools been "1 Sekolah Untuk Semua" all this while? So why is it failing to attract ALL children?

Some stupid people here just never get it. The wise man once said opportunity is to be created and not be given. So for those who think the world owes them all the priviledges and special rights, I hope you can teach your children that the world will not give them the opportunity on a plate and they have to learn to have the expedience to create the opportunities. If you don't then I really pity your children. God helps this country to be able to perpetually giving out opportunities in a sliver plate to them in the future. I for one will make sure my children learn to survive in the real world and not the ketuanan world. When the taxes dwindles in the future, what's the point of priviledge? Who support this priviledge? Thin air? As for the schooling system, I've sent two of my children to SK from primary to secondary and guest what.. they complained that the quality and standard were hopeless and most of the teachers were lazy and not motivated while the teaching were incompetent to say the least. So I have to send my another child to vernicular just to have a change. And talk about unity, my child that went to the vernicular school for his primary but continue at SK for his secondary, set up a lion dance club with a few malay and indian classmates, eventhough the teachers were against the idea at first. So who is not bringing unity to the young minds? If we adult stop being prejudice about everything and bring the young minds together, they still can be together. The unfortunate thing is acoording to my son, the atmosphere in SK are just too racist because of the school administrator. Instead of trying to put in effort to integrate the students of various background, it is the same divide and rule policies like those BTN programme of the racist. UMNO

saya sokong sistem satu sekolah ni, tapi for sure ada drawbacks. firstly, there surely will be a demand from chinese chauvinist to abolish MARA too. if this is happening, what Malays can do? can Malays accept this?

secondly, there also will be a demand to abolish NEP on total.

I think the best is to stick to the current system, but do improve on our SK.

eventually, when they realised that the products of SK much more better than SJK, SJK will dissapear itself.

I agree with you the schools system (and teachers) up to 1975 was much better and to abolishing the vernacular schools provided:-

1. Teaching of any religion is EXCLUDED from Govt and Govt assisted/aided schools. Why should taxpayers foot the bill? If you want religion then let the private sector set up its own schools.

2. Pupils' Own Language and Culture classes are made mandatory. At least 2 lessons per week must be included provided we have a minimum of 5 students ( I think Australia practices this minimum system).

3. All subjects can be in Bahasa Malaysia provided English and English Literature are taught from Std 1 as a subject from foundation level with grammar, sentence construction, essay writing etc.

As for Science & Maths, unless we have the relevant terms and reference books, we should change to English at secondary level.

We can argue the finer points later, but let's find a school system that brings the races together from Standard 1 and not at Uni when the damage has already been done and cannot be rectified easily if at all!

I would like to add a bit more.

I don't think nons are rejecting SK schools because of Bahasa Malaysia issue. Urbanite non-Malay would gladly go to any schools if kids can do well in exams.

But non-Malays in the countryside, that's another story. Many are smallholders and they still use Chinese to converse and transact invoices, delivery orders and other business documents. It's understandable they have sentiments for the language. Cari makan mah.

Hey, how many of them get work orders from the government anyway?

As Darwinism in play, an Indian lorry driver will surely want to learn to speak Malay if he deals with mostly Malay. Chinese living in Kuantan or Kuala Terengganu speak superb Malay, because customers are mostly Malays. It's logic. Without doubt, if government gives more jobs and contracts to nons, there will be droves of nons pushing their kids to Malay medium schools.

It's also not true that nons will only buy from nons. Who wants to argue with money if a Malay can get the job done at cheaper rate. Everyone buys roti canai from mamak eateries bcoz they are the best and cheapest. Period. The Chinese will never survive a day in the roti canai business.

Like wise, race based companies. Businesses are born with only one purpose: To make profit with the best resources. They will hire anyone Indian, Malay, Chinese, etc as long as they got what it takes. If a Malay staff can speak Chinese, he is worth a lot more than a Chinese who speaks Chinese. So, puh-leeasse, let's not argue that the Malays only hire Malays and Chinese only hire Chinese. In KL, there are Malay companies hiring Chinese sales staffs just to break into Chinese market. No hard feelings. It's all business sense.

My guess is in future people who keep to their mother tongue solely with suffer most in career or business advancement.

All Malaysians must go to ONE school and master Bahasa Malaysia (SK schools must buck up). For the far sighted, also master English, Chinese, Arabic, Spanish ... etc.

That was a flashy car in those days. Remember Mrs Oh yang sangat garang tu? Hairstyle dia ala sarang tebuan.

Tried as I might, but I couldn't recall you in that class. How long were you in Jubilee?
I did my entire primary education there and later at Anderson.

1) Sekolah vernakular DAN sekolah agama
2) Asrama penuh lepasan darjah 6
3) asrama penuh lepasan PMR
4) Matrikulasi dan STPM
5) University untuk 1 bangsa.

Kalau kamu lihat, sekolah vernakular hanya 1 daripada 5 masalah besar. Itupun boleh di bahas kerana semua kaum boleh pergi ke sekolah cina atau tamil.

Itupun lepas darjah 6 dah masuk balik sekolah kebangsaan di tingkatan 1, dah boleh pupuk perpaduan kembali.

Pak Rocky

Intentionally, or unintentionally, you forgot to mention 1 crucial point - that Singapore is a secular republic and that the Singapore government is resolutely secular. Which means that no religion gets to call the shots in Singapore.

That is one of the foundations of Singapore's education system.

Which is why both madrasahs and Christian mission schools continue to flourish in Singapore.

The other point that you omitted is that Singapore made a conscious decision to retain and build on the education system bequeathed to it by the British colonial administration. Including a decision (which has paid off handsomely) to retain English as the medium of instruction from pre-school to tertiary levels.

Ersatz nationalism had no place in Lee Kuan Yew's thinking. The man is a supreme pragmatist, if nothing else.

You also forgot to mention that teachers and school principals in Singapore are well-paid and well-trained and that they are supported by the most modern of infrastructure in their schools. And that maintaining or exceeding academic standards is a matter of pride for these teachers and principals - witness Singapore students' stellar performances in the GCE 'O' and 'A' level and the International Baccalaureate exams!

I would hazard a guess that the top Malaysian schools that have been chosen to "twin" with the top Singapore schools would have felt distinctly disadvantaged when visiting their Singapore counterparts!

what is the point of having an integrated school if everything else remains the same? you have 90% seats at the higher level of the school admin going to Malay teachers from the headmaster down to normal teachers, you will have all heavy responsibilities of teachers all given to non-Bumi teachers, you will award 98% of the awards to Bumi teachers and leave 2% to non-Bumi teachers, so on and so forth. you can't expect a 1Sekolah to integrate the whole country when all the other racist policies are still there, which includes Ketuanan Melayu, NEP, non-Islam-Islam division, non-Bumi-Bumi division, non-Malay-Malay division. all these policies will still destroy anything that the school aims to achieve. From simple things like loans to scholarships to appointment of students and teachers to leadership roles. It will still be the same, mark my words. Nothing will change unless the top changes.

Finally, most important thing is education quality. we choose a school which provides the best education quality. simple as that. it is not because of race or religion. the same reason we go for the best universities in the world. simple concept for you to understand.

Rocky,

You must analyse issues by looking at the root cause not merely on the surface.Do you and those bloggers sincerely think that,if you guys get rid of these vernacular schools then things will become rosy?I for one certainly support the 1school system,but as long as the national schools are not revamped its a lost cause.

We are talking about a good education for our young ones,so please dont politicize this very important issue,which strikes at the core of a civil society.

Let me ask you,say you guys are successful in getting rid of the vernacular schools,then what?Will the national malay schools will stop its creeping islamization?Will the national schools will see a balanced racial make up of teachers and staff as was the case in the 50s,60s and early 70s?Will the schools have more intelligent teachers and are passionate,like those teachers I had in my school those days?

There are thousands of stateless poor indian students who have been turned away by malay national schools,a life line was given to these kids by tamil schools,so are the govt of the day willing to absorb these kids into national schools?How will they,when the education director had even instructed some tamil schools not to accept such kids.Why deprive these poor kids of a basic education for no fault of theirs?The answer is simple,the govt is not interested in solving these kids' problems,because they are indians.Imagine what would happen to these poor kids,if there are no more tamil schools?Does Singapore does this sort of things?

Singapore gives utmost importance in learning and critical thinking,can we say the same of our malay national schools?Does Singapore brings in religious elements in to their national schools?Do they have food code in their schools?Do they have half cooked teachers of a particular ethnic group,just to make up their numbers?Just go and take a look at the std of some of our national malay school teachers,I am not talking about their abysmal english langguage knowledge,but also in other subjects.Please do you research before speaking up.

I have come across many indian,chinese and even malay students who had studied in vernacular schools,and I never saw they are any less Malaysian.They are all as much Malaysian as others who went to national schools.

With the removal of vernacular schools,will govt sponsored racist institutions like Biro-tatanegara,which brainwashes students and civil servants be removed as well?Will a certain higher learning institute which caters only to a certain ethnic group(a world first),open itself to students of other ethnicity as well?Will a non-malay student with excellent academic result be selected for PSD scholarship?The list can go on.

If you want vernacular schools abolished,then make the national schools attractive to the non-malays.Revamp our school history books,teach tamil and chinese during school hours with a greater emphasis,get rid of religious,political and racial elements from national schools.Hire teachers of all ethnicity and only the best brains.
In this way the vernacular schools will die a natural death.

Most importantly have a unified examination as a pre-university examination,abolish the matriculation system,its a very very unfair system.

So look at the larger picture,the above mentioned facts are the bigger culprits in causing division in our society,a big part of the blame should go to the UMNO led govt.The vernacular school may be only playing a very small part in this so called societal division.

Kalau ada yang mengatakan SK lebih mundur daripada SJK, kongsilah bagaimana nak majukan satu sekolah untuk Malaysia. Takkan nak simpan sendiri. Nak orang lain kongsi, tapi diri sendiri punya simpan sendiri tak nak kongsi dengan orang lain.

Satu sekolah boleh JIKA rakyat Malaysia bersatu untuk mewujudkannya, baik dari segi cadangan mahupun usahasama.

Sekolah bukan gelanggang sepak terajang politik. Jangan politikkan pendidikan anak bangsa Malaysia kita.

I believe his children will not be able to use English like what Rocky can and also will not be able to climb the cooperate ladder as successful as Rocky.

Reasons? Rocky got his education from a system that LKY build up with the goal of achieving world standard where as Rocky's childrens are stucked in a Malaysia education system that build by jealous Ketuanan Melayu who does not have a direction.

Rocky, If I were you I will send the children and school them in Singapore or at least send them oversea to OZ, NZ, UK or US.

While I agree with one school system, it has to be a fair system where all Malaysians are treated equal and reflect the diversity of the population.

Disappointingly, Ketuanan Melayu is the biggest stumbling block for this plan. Just look at how non-Malay or non-Islam activities and culture are suppressed in local universities and sekolah kebangsaan and you'll understand.

If we can't do it at the political level, how can we do it in the education system? Leaders need to lead the way.

Will this type of national school exclude the other languages of Malaysia from being taught? If so, then I don't quite agree with it. A national school system must allow the languages of Malaysia to be taught. A Malaysian Chinese child must be compulsorily taught Mandarin and an Indian child must be taught Tamil. The mother-tongue must be taught. A Malay child must choose either as a compulsory language. The school hours must be extended to accommodate this, which may not be so much of a problem if the current Chinese and Tamil schools are integrated into a new system.

Parents want the best for their children, the best schools. I am in Singapore and you can see the competition.
Schools do not teach racism, it's certain people inside the school that teaches that. Given a choice, I am sure parents wants the children to be conversant in the National Language and mix well with others. Look at the Singapore's system of encouraging the best in teaching or developing students. There is so much grading on excellency, on their teachers and contents. There are so many awards available that even I am confuse ! My child happen to be in the best secondary school with Chinese emphasis, and there is no teaching on racism etc, only good chinese culture of humility, respect, honor etc. I think the rest of the all the schools also taught these values. If someone taught something different, I am sure they will be called up by the Ministry of Education. So don't blame the vernacular schools.
In Singapore, the top schools are fully government schools, with much competiton from a few aided schools. It's how the schools are run, not the language that make them excel and people going after them !

Alex said...

Betul ke tak Rocky? I myself am a byproduct of national schools and let me tell you, there is an even greater chance of being racialist in national schools than vernacular schools.

Every time got fight between Chinese/Indian with Malay, the Malay students will shout balik Cina, balik India (gee I wonder where they learned that from?)

Then there is the favoritism shown by some Malay teachers to their own race which makes us want to puke. They will lecture us on our place bla bla bla.

But of course the majority of Malay teachers are okay, in fact most of my favorite teachers were Malays. Even as a product of national school, I will still defend vernacular schools.

I still think the best is to leave the system as it is today first and make Bahasa Melayu a mandatory language in all schools but with emphasis on mother tongue in vernacular schools. In national schools, English should be made a second medium.

Combining the schools into 1Sekolah is not going to work until racialist politics is rid of first. Otherwise, can you guarantee with your life that racialists will not take control of these 1Sekolah as the many instances of Keling calling attest to?

But I do agree that Dong Jiao Zhong can be a bit dumb and hard headed sometimes, especially regarding the English language issue. So how do you propose we create a 1Sekolah when there are too many fundamental contradictions in Malaysian society that is yet to be solved? And the first way to solve it is to do away with race based parties.

Is UMNO willing to lead the way or is it Ahmad Ismail's way that is coming?

By the way, don't talk cock la Rocky.

Let's not conveniently forget that the most militantly pro-Chinese-education organisation is the MCA-sponsored Dong Jiao Zong.

If KijangMas is so damn serious about national unity, he should first take UMNO to task as the dominant party of BN for allolwing race-based parties to exist for so long, forcing the rakyat to vote along racial lines.

It's time for all these so-called "satu bangsa" proponents to put up or shut up - lead by example la.

Let's put out a clarion call for all race-based parties to be dissolved instead.

Our children are not to be blamed for racial thinking because it is the political system perpetuated at all levels of society by the BN.

Perhaps this UM lecturer will give an insight the BTN blighted mindset that permeates the mindset of the academic staff at our local U (not all mind you, but those who do not share the same aspirations would probably do time in cold storage). I bet the mindset of many staff of SRKs and SMKs, especially in positions of power would not be much different.

Umno supporters sabotaging 1Malaysia and Najib
Stephen Doss | May 18, 09 4:40pm
I was at the Konvensyen Belia 2009 in Malacca recently and had to agonisingly sit through and listen to speaker after speaker doing a big disservice to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.
MCPX

The convention was to discuss ‘1Malaysia' which is the latest slogan to hit Malaysians but participants left with a bad taste in the mouth.

There was this one particular paper presenter who is a lecturer from University Malaya (God help UM) who simplified ‘1Malaysia' for everyone.

He said ‘1Malaysia' is not about equality, its not a Malaysian Malaysia. It's about justice (lol).

By way of providing an example, he says if the recent Amanah Saham Wawasan share issue was distributed equally, ie, nine billion shares for each community, it would mean the Malays by virtue of their large number would each only get to buy RM600, 000 (forgetting that there is cap on purchases available anyway)

Next, the Chinese, because they have a smaller number, would walk away with 1.2 million shares each and the Indians would benefit the most because as the smallest community they would get 2.4 million shares each.

Wow! (The simplistic argument here is that it is the fault of the Chinese and Indians for not procreating to have larger numbers of their kind)

And this, therefore, is why the shares cannot be distributed equally; this is why justice demands that the Malays must get 16 billion shares, the Chinese five billion shares and the Indians two billion shares.

I can safely say that this is why UM will never get into the list of top universities in the world. It can't with lecturers with such simplistic minds.

He failed to point out that practically:

1. Not everyone can afford to buy the shares.

2. As with all such schemes, the ones with the most money from each community will benefit - not necessarily the whole community.

And third, if we are really sincere about ‘1Malaysia' we have to stop thinking along damn racial mindsets. ***

Anonymous said...

Sdr Rocky Bru,

This is the first time I'm leaving a comment in your blog because I find many comments here reflect a lack of understanding of the issues at stake and I'd like to help provide a better understanding of the issues involved.

What is at stake is the future of our country, of our children, grandchildren and generations after them. We must have lasting peace and harmony in order to progress. We must avoid another May 13, 1969. We must reduce to the minimum the feelings of suspicion, intolerance and lack of respect for one another that appear to have increased in recent times. We cannot just wish them away or keep shouting slogans like unity in diversity; that slogan is a misnomer, a contradiction in terms. When we are diverse, going our separate ways, we simply cannot unite. We therefore must try to create a spirit of togetherness, of friendship, of common identity beginning from the young, at their formative age. We can create that spirit in schools. In view of that, the proposal for the birth of a united, strong and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia was made. That proposal incorporates an in-depth, independent study/ review of the current education system and the establishment of Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua.

The intent of the proposal is very clear: the creation of a united Bangsa Malaysia. Perhaps what may not be readily clear is the rationale or reasoning used in the proposal. To understand the reasoning, it is necessary to know (a) the history of our country from its very beginning (b) the circumstances leading to the writing of the Constitution and (c) the pertinent Articles of the Constitution.

1-2 readers mention cultural superiority and the like. There is no such thing intended or propagated in this proposal. Demi Negara talks about giving respect to the ways of those people who have been recognised as ruling this country, then called Tanah Melayu, since even before the Sri Vijaya Kingdom in the 7th Century, all the way thru the Malacca Sultanate and Empire, the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British incursions and colonisation.

Some dislike the special position of the Malays, resent being called immigrants and may suspect that this proposal might lead to an eclipse of their identity. But the facts of history must be accepted: the non-Malays immigrated and some 1.5 million were stateless in this country before Independence. The Malay and non-Malay leaders agreed that the non-Malays be given citizenship and, in consideration of that, the Malays (being economically and educationally very backward at that time) be given a "special position" to help them progress. These were written into the Constitution after we got independence from the British. Therefore, the Malay special position and citizenship rights should not be raised or linked to this proposal and should not deter Malaysians from signing the petition. The proposal is, after all, for the creation of one Bangsa Malaysia and, when a truly united, strong and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia has existed, there would no longer be any reference to "kaum pendatang", no longer any need to identify Malaysians by their ethnic origin, our NRIC and all other documents should bear "race" as "Bangsa Malaysia".

The question of Bahasa Melayu as the medium of instruction for Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua should not be disputed if we accept that it is stipulated in the Constitution as the language of the country. Nobody says that mothertongue cannot be used, but, pursuant to a Clause in the Constitution, it should not be for or in connection with official purposes, including as medium of instruction for schools, as schools are deemed as an official business in any country in the world.

1-2 mention other Articles of the Constitution, for example, on freedom to study mothertongue. Nobody is proposing that it be stopped. Only that it should not be in the context of official business, not in normal school hours. Whether it can be done as elective subjects or not depends on the review of the education system that is being proposed.

The key factor for nation building and progress is that national interest must overide all other interests. That national interest is clearly the creation of a united, strong and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia.

Maju.

I refer to the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2007 results (http://nces.ed/gov/timss/table07_1.asp).

The results for Grade four maths showed the top five countries/economies as Hong Kong, Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Japan and Kazakhstan. Malaysia did not participate in this category.

The results for Grade eight maths (in which Malaysia participated) showed the top 5 as Chinese Taipei, S Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. Malaysia's score was 474 (cf Singapore's score of 593).

For Grade four science (where Malaysia did not participate), the top 5 were Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan and Russia.

For Grade eight science, the top 5 were Singapore, Chinese Taipei, Japan, S Korea and England. Malaysia's score was 471 (cf Singapore's score of 567).

See a trend here?

Some more facts from the TIMSS 2007 report: only 3 per cent of eighth-grade students in Malaysia reached the TIMSS advanced international benchmark in science (cf Singapore's 36 per cent). And only 2 per cent of eighth-grade students in Malaysia reached the TIMSS advanced international benchmark in maths (cf Singapore's 40 per cent).

Another trend?

Any smart alecks out there want to comment on the above?

***Dear Stupid Mut,

The Very fact that the government is giving at all to you freaks is good enough! This Is Malay land not China landlah bodoh. We Malays dont expect this kind of good treatment if we were to stay in your motherland China anyway. Just look at you here. "Dah bagi betis nak peha" (if you dont understand, "the more we give the more you want"). Shut Up and be thankful for what you have! Even Australia dont want your kind there, cause you come and consume everything, never thankful! Don't even bring the Indians into this we have no beef with them. Stupid MUT!!!***

Orang kata lebih baik diam dari menzahirkan kebodohan diri sendiri. Dah terang lagi bersuluh ini mainan politik UMNO.

You must be an BTN brainwashed UMNO supporter. Maybe an SRK or SMK teacher (with apologies to true educationsists)? Too unintelligent to be U lecturer - god forbid. You did not even respond to any of the points put forward in the post. But you lasted one whole paragraph. You think readers here are impressed with what you wrote (which actually amounts to zero contribution to the issue?)

Fact is this is a Malaysian education problems with an UMNO political solution to profit them. I say they won't address the problem if they can't even figure out what went wrong.

This blame game being played by UMNO through the Education ministry is just a another milestone in the descent of our education system into the abyss.

***One school for all is also a racist initiative? I wonder how.

If we shoot down an idea for integration because we thought the idea will only benefit one race which is not ours, that would make us a ____________?

a. nationalist
b. idealist
c. racist
d. none of the above

***

An objective question? Sounds like a trick question or a skewed questionnaire. I prefer:

e. someone suspicious of the "rat fixing the pumpkin"

(translated from the Malay proverb "tikus membaiki labu". This means making an existing problem even worse).

MY opening statement would be to the above question would probably be:

""Wah 1Party for all is also a racist initiative? I wonder how."

We can keep on wondering lah. What would rejection of the above make someone? I guess you can answer any which way; it is subjective.

There will be no shortage of rats cooking up hare-brained ideas in office. The procession just keeps on going. Meanwhile, mind your heads, the slogans keep on coming!

I assume you are one and the same person.

You began by accusing people stupid. I wouldn't do that because I believe in mutual respect, national unity and all.

Youu talked about "priviledges and special rights .. perpetually giving out opportunities in a sliver plate .." Obviously you resent the NEP. But pls remember that the NEP was promulgated under the Clause regarding the "special position" of the Malays that was written in the Constitution of the country. That "special position" was agreed to at Merdeka time by the non-Malay leaders as the consideration i.e in exchange for citizenship for the non-Malays, who were stateless at that time, that was agreed to by the Malay leaders. So, if you resent the NEP, the Malays would resent your citizenship. This would create ill feelings and is not good for national unity and the creation of a united Bangsa Malaysia which we must have for peace and harmony for our children and future generations.

You said you "sent two of my children to SK from primary to secondary .. and they complained that the quality and standard were hopeless and most of the teachers were lazy and not motivated while the teaching were incompetent to say the least." Were these the words of your children? Could they, or even you, make value judgement on their teachers? Nevertheless, this is one aspect that could be included in the study/ review proposed by the Demi Negara people to be submitted to the Minister of Education. As you are complaining about this, you should be supporting their effort.

You aslo said ".. according to my son, the atmosphere in SK are just too racist because of the school administrator.. it is the same divide and rule policies like those BTN programme of the racist UMNO". Again, this is a judgment on a subjective matter by a boy that you are relying on in accusing the school administrator etc of being racist. I'm reminded of the school children in Communist China denouncing their teachers, even parents, during the so-called Cultural Revolution not too long ago. However, I'm willing to concede that the SKs may be wanting. But again this will be covered by the study/ review of the existing education system that is being proposed.

You also said ".. you have 90% seats at the higher level of the school admin going to Malay teachers from the headmaster down to normal teachers, you will have all heavy responsibilities of teachers all given to non-Bumi teachers, you will award 98% of the awards to Bumi teachers and leave 2% to non-Bumi teachers, so on and so forth." These are a lot of damning figures you mentioned. Unfortunately, you have not stated the source, the authority or authenticity of those claims. As they are not substantiated, not even the name of the school mentioned, they would appear as wild accusations. Do get the accurate breakdown figures, the name of the school, the teachers concerned, the administrator etc, and write to the Education Dept or Ministry. You can't say "nothing will move", because you haven't tried, have you?

Then you said ".. the other racist policies are still there, which includes .. NEP". As stated earlier, the NEP was agreed to in exchange for your citizenship right. Tun Tan Siew Sin had said in 1969 that the Malays were "generous enough" in agreeing to non-Malay citizenship during Merdeka and relaxing citizenship rules after Merdeka. With all these, are you not being racist yourself when you call NEP a racist policy and begrudge us for having the special position and the NEP your forefathers have agreed to?

Let's be reasonable lah. Let's give and take a little. Don't link the Demi Negara proposal to NEP and so on. Let's encourage our children with positive attitudes and not negative views about teachers and school administrators. Let's foster a spirit of mutual respect, respect for elders and seniors and build a united, strong and cohesive Bangsa Malaysia.

Who is this Demi Negara anyway? I have gone to his blog and find his writings to be tedious, malicious and rude. Same for his racist commentators who only know how to insult and name call whenever anyone has a different opinion. It's all one shiok sendiri grouping. If Demi Negara is serious in his ideas than let him come out and identify himself instead of hiding his identity. Will give more credence to the whole thing.

And yes, he does selective posting of comments - anything that is logical and moderate, which he cannot insult he does not include. I tested this a few times.

So forget it lah.

If clearly they don't want it - then let them stay in their SRJKs.

It is interesting to read this piece, but I can't help but wonder, if our PM's Satu Malaysia campaign will come a premature death, with this latest twist of Satu Bangsa, Satu Sekolah.

Saya kira diri saya sendiri sebagai penyokong Kerajaan dan saya adalah dari aliran sekolah cina sampai ke tahap tingkatan 6.

Tidak ada masalah bagi saya untuk menerima konsep 'satu sekolah untuk semua' yang dihebohkan disini, tetapi bagaimanakah kita rakyat Malaysia boleh memastikan anak-anak kita, setelah menerima pendidikan sekolah rendah mereka dibawah 'Satu Sekolah' ini akan mempunyai peluang melanjutkan pelajaran mereka di tahap yang lebih tinggi, peluang yang sama rata dengan rakan-rakan melayu mereka? adakah ini bermaksud, pada hari muka, borang-borang persekolahan & kerajaan yang akan mereka isi, tidak akan mempunyai soalan lazim, umpamanya keturunan & bangsa ataupun kaum? sebab mereka ini kan hasil dari sistem 'Satu Sekolah', tidak kira mereka ini melayu, cina ataupun india. dan pada masa depan yang tidak begitu jauh, anak-anak kita ini hanya tahu mengelar diri mereka Bangsa Malaysia, dan tiada lagi mengutamakan latar belakang melayu, cina dan india meraka.
adakah semua ini boleh dicapai, rakan sekalian?

Kalaulah apa yang disebutkan saya diatas memang boleh dicapai, saya tidak nampak apa masalahnya dengan konsep '1 Sekolah' ini.

Satu Malaysia, Satu Sekolah, Satu Bangsa, Satu Hak

A few of us have started a group at Facebook: SATU SEKOLAH UNTUK SEMUAhttp://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=81464198751

Personally, as one of the group's Admin, I have seen a lot of abusive remarks and accusations made against this campaign.

Some people would love to see this as "a racist campaign by Malays against non-Malays". It isn't.

At the same time, all of us also need to listen to the grievances that others have. And there might be better ideas of how to go about things.

As such, we have created a specific post there for you folks to mention what your reservations are. I had written this Welcome note below. Thank you for the space given in this blog.

WELCOME: Let's make this "Untuk Semua" (Monday 18 May 2009)

Dear Members,
Thank you for your interest in this campaign. The fact that you had clicked on the "Join" button shows that, at the very least, the concept is one that you can accept. And you don't mind being connected to this.

Remember that there are many who didn't click on "Join". There are different reasons and they include:

#They don't have any opinion on this. and don't want to learn about the issues, the objectives, the problems, the alternatives and whatever else. That means they have given others the mandate to do what we think is best. They shouldn't complain about anything later on.

#They think this is a "Malay ultra, racist group"... That this is "directed and controlled by Umno"... "are against Chinese, Indians and non-Malays" etc. This is one of the group's duties - We must explain, in a clear and civil manner, what this group is really campaigning for. And to do this effectively, we must learn in more detail about the Who, Why, What, Where and How of the matter

This is a campaign with a noble aim - to eventually create a REAL Bangsa Malaysia. The current system definitely won't ever lead to this - in fact, it's one of the main reasons for the current polarisation.

This campaign is where we REALLY take on the bull by the horns. Expect to meet strong opposition. Listen to what those who oppose plan to do in dealing with the racial problems. Is their plan better? No? Then dig in and keep up with the effort - it's going to be a long and rough haul ahead. But the goals to this are worthy, and we choose to be with the worthy.

This Demi Negara blog use quota system to make decision on publish of comment. So I paste my comment here la.

I think it would be great if Kijang Mas could read not only English and Indonesia national language but also the common language of PRC and India, the all four most common use language in the world. If this is the case then there will be no need to get Alan help to do translation of those blog written in the common language of PRC for Kijang Mas as reference. Take the SRJK boy as example, even without the Chinese translation, most of us can still read and understand the petition.

From a political point of view, both BN and PR need this piece of petition, as they equally want more weapons to carry on their battle to pull in more audience and supporter. I would say the petition suits this purpose well.

From a unity and education point of view, I think the satu sekolah is not a bad concept, but the implementation must come from a new government where justice, trust and accountability is the basis of administration and implementation, which the present government lack of.

I was from the national type school system and I received a good education there. But this was more than 20 years ago. I agree that it is good to have a 1-school system; but the standards must be upgraded to what they were previously. However, I don't like the way the petition is written where it tries to put the full blame on vernacular schools for the racial segregation. This has come about because of the way normal Malaysians are being always segregated by race by the government machinery itself. I also don't like the way the idea is being forced through on those who have a dissenting view. It is pointless insulting people. What is important is to sell the idea such that it becomes something everyone aspires to.

I agree that as Malaysian citizens we should have a strong command of the national language (BM) so that this is a common link and bond; but I also believe that it is important to have an equally good command of English for international and global communication. I am in business and we use English everyday of our lives. Unless the Government is going to change this too, after awhile we do lose some of our fluency in BM - I am a case in point, but that does not make me less Malaysian or patriotic.

SSUS doesn’t mean the abolishment of any or other languages. Other languages shall flourish like any languages of the world.

SSUS also does not mean one race is out to subjugate the others. A provocateur with malice, selfish vested interest and hidden vicious agenda will claim and argue otherwise.

It is a call to the present Malaysians generation to make added sacrifice for all future generations and the beloved country.

It is a restatement of commitment hopefully to be taken up by the authorities, to the struggle for the development and betterment of our spiritual and physical being of Malaysians and Malaysia of the future.

It is therefore the struggle of all Malaysians irrespective of their colour, origin, creed or breed.

Untuk melaksanakan satu sekolah untuk semua bagi saya sudah terlambat. Perumpamaan seperti anggota tubuh badan kita yang sudah diresapi virus canser yang sukar untuk disembuhkan.

Cara terbaik adalah lakukannya cara paksaan. Mana-mana kumpulan yang tidak setuju mereka ada pilihan untuk migrate ke negara lain. Negara terbaik adalah cina dan india ke uk tempat mak bapak dia dulu bawak diorang ke sini. Di sana dia tau lah langgit tinggi dan rendah, di sana memang tak ada sekolah-sekolah rasict ni.

The best way, lancarkan kempen untuk hantar mereka balik ke negara asal. Ini cara terbaik.

Bold move. This is a move proposed by progressive elements within the ommunity - Malay, Chinese,and Indian - for a long time now, but suppressed by idiots within the MCA and MIC, who have been concerned more about their personal future than the nation's.

This brings out the inconsistencies within the BN which have not been properly addressed by the current administration.

The government of the day has to be clear about what constitutes a wise policy for the BN and the nation, and must be firm about the tradeoffs, which should include dropping the likes of Wee, Samyvelu and Kavyeas.

Why should a govt minister oppose the 1Sekolah if it is in line with 1 Malaysia? Why should Samyvelu chide the govt for siding with the Sri Lankan govt against terrorist organisations? What role do parties have in the BN which don't practice democracy?

BN's policies don't seem to be any more coherent than the pakatan whose sole logic is the person of Anwar being in power.

The 1Sekolah brings out clealry the falsity of the the Opposition's Malaysian Malaysia and MCA's and MIC's national type schools policy and should be pushed to it's logical conclusion, with a clearer and firmer BN emerging.

Even now those calling for one school system bastards also proud of overseas tertiary titles and living happily, fondly in United Stated and now teaching us how to manage this country.

it is the mindset to educate, to have critical thinking more important than what language--even China youths nowadays speak more English than their mother tongue, why, they encourage their people to be more lihai(pandai) in 2 --3 languanges.

Sri lanka is the country that implementing satu bahasa and satu bangsa---30 years internal wars to destroy this once has been most beautiful country. it's the mindset of idiot that think about "satu suara" will help the nation.

Sri Lanka Menjadi Sri Neraka-Satu Penginsafan Total

Puisi: Sri Lanka Menjadi Sri Neraka
(Penderitaan 30 Tahun Kerana Ketuanan Satu Bangsa, Keagungan Satu Bahasa & Kemuliaan Satu Agama)

Oleh: Victor Lee

30 tahun yang lalu
Sri Lanka bukan nama asalnya
Yang terkenal adalah Ceylon
Teh Ceylon paling mashyur
Bapa saya paling suka meminumnya
Bersama Najib, Sasasey, Ah Sigh, Pairin & Johnny

Ceylon negara yang paling maju & progresif
Di Selatan Asia, malah di benua Asia
Orang British memupuk pegawai administratif
Untuk dihantar ke negara penjajahannya

Pendidikannya paling baik & umum
Mutu pelajaran dan budaya yang tinggi
Perkembangan ekonomi yang pesat
Rakyat hidup damai, harmoni & gembira

Tahun 70’an junjungan pribumiisme
Junjungan “Satu Bangsa” Singhalese
Tunjangan “Satu Bahasa”Singhalese
Pengagungan “Satu Agama” Buddha
(amat sama dgn polisi Indonesia & Malingsia)

Membawa sengsara, medatangkan derita, menambah kepahitan
Orang Tamil dipencil dan diabaikan
Dihina kerana bukan berbahasa rasmi
Dipandang rendah kerana bukan pribumi
Dieksploit kerana beragama lain

Perang saudara tercetus
Perlawanan yang tak henti-henti
Tiada ampun, tiada maaf
Kerana ketuanan satu bangsa
Kerana keagungan satu bahasa
Kerana kejunjungan satu agama

Teh Ceylon sudah dilupakan dunia
Bapa beta dan kawannya sukar nak beli
Teh yang paling baik dan terenak
Pelancong sudah lenyap sama sekali
Keindahan suasana Ceylon sudah menjadi sejarah
Yang dipapar hanyalah perang yang sengit
Pembunuhan satu per satu……
membawa kebencian yang tak putus-putus
Merekakan balas dendam yang tak ada penghabisan

Kerana ketuanan satu bangsa
Disebabkan keagungan satu bahasa
Lantaran kemuliaan satu agama
Menggadaikan ribuan jiwa
Membinasakan harapan kanak-kanak
Menghancur-luluhkan masa depan dan hari esok
Semua insan di Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka menjadi Sri Neraka
Kerana kejijikan minda pemimpin
Ditolok tambah keegoan intelek
Berpandangan dan berfikiran cetek
Berlagak dan bertopeng
Di belakang layar perak “untuk nusa & bangsa”

Kejijikan ketuanan, keagungan, kemuliaan
Satu Bangsa, Satu Bahasa, Satu agama
Membawa 30 tahun penderitaan
Kesengsaraan di bumi yang terindah
Tanah Ceylon yang maha harmoni, maha bahagia
Menjelma ke medan peperangan
pembunuhan berlarutan yang tak bermakna
menjelmakan nusa tercinta ke nusa neraka

Segala-gala kerana polisi jijik
Ketamakan pemimpin untuk populariti
Kekejian intelek & pejuang bahasa
Yang ego, berotak udang
Keaguhan pengembang agama fanatik
Yang terkobar-kobar

30 tahun tersia-sia
Kerana pemikiran sempit
Kerana masih berminda kolonisme
Berminda imperialisme
Seperti zaman penjajahan Jepun
Memaksa tahanan Malaya membaca
Dan menulis bahasa Jepun
Seperti zaman kolonial British
Mengagung-agungkan bahasa Inggeris
Yang menjadi eka dan satu-satunya

Dunia sudah menjadi kampung global
Pengetahuan bertaburan, berada di mana-mana
Berpandai-pandai menguasai lebih bahasa
Lebih menguntung dan menyenang pergaulan
Disanjung sepelusuk dunia
Ditabik global
Diberi penghormatan, kemuliaan
Dikurniakan pengiktiranan dan penganugerahan internasional

Jangan ulangi lagi penderitaan
Sri Lanka menjelma Sri Neraka
Cintai nusa dengan hati naluri
Bukan permainan satu dan eka
Jangan jadikan nusa menjadi
Malingsia dan malingsial

We are comfortable with the SK, and for whatever weaknesses, will definitely be working harder to push to improve it to higher levels. For better facilities, trained qualified teachers, introduction of new methods and technologies etc etc.

We have nothing to loose..

The 1Sekolah initiative is to let all Malaysian children also enjoy these benefits, it is a blessing that we are inviting with open arms and open hearts.

TAMAU, TAMAU... THAT'S YOUR REACTION?

OK, once again may I remind you to make sure you engrave this TAMAU on your tombstone, because the next 20years, we don't want our kids to be burdened having to listen to your CRIES of discrimination or what not.

JANGAN LUPA, PELAWAAN SUDAH DIBUAT.

Victor Lee Simatupang,

Why on Sri Lanka? Have one puisi made about places closer to your hearts..The struggles of the PEASANTS in Mainland China, the Dalits in India, their life struggles, then and now?

I am sure you will get good and detailed version as most of your decendants were once mainly from these groups of immigrants, before sailing off for greener pastures..

Why waste your time on Sri Lanka?

Victor Lee Simatupang,

Yes, and when I lend in my support to the 1Sekolah call, I read articles related to education;

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/01/international/01CHIN.html?hp

Your name "LEE", I am sure your ancestors were never near Sri Lanka, so why do you need to "JAGA TEPI KAIN ORANG" unnecessarily?

Simatupang -
I give you a 5.0 for your hate-puisi ah. Never mind let you pass wan ok. But sure this is Bahasa ka? Aiya, no wonder la even Msian's can't understand. Ah yes,and a 10 for letting us all know what is the syllabus for the SRJK(C)schools in Johor Bahru is like:))1Sekolah here we come!!

Brother, you're missing itu point la.Awak ni di mana? Where do you think you are? We're talking about unifying Malaysia ,with the NATIONAL LANGUAGE, Bahasa, as the medium and you're talking about what... Indon, China, Sri Lanka. Lagi, lagi? ..aiya how can you forget itu Singapura ma. Eh, so what, why can't people be proud of their tertiary education ah? You got a law/sanction against this ka? Jeles ah.

See, this is what happens when you dont read betul2 ah or I think you didn't even bother to read at all. Who said anything about stopping you from speaking and practicing your languages/cultures/religion? It is even mentioned that English is important. Talk about *mindset*, I can speak, write and read in 5 languages -now can you change yours or not?

If I were you I wouldn't be losing sleep about what the Indonesians may be thinking because I promise you we don't. As much as you'ld love to see us at each other's throat it won't happen. It only help demonstrate to all here just how much of a Malaysian you really are.

Hahahaha - siapa itu Ktoyo ma? Saya tatak kenal. Wah lu manyak tau, ini suda makan sorang2 ah? No worries, fly or sail you will get there lor. So long...

Victor Lee Simatupang,

Jelas sangat awak ni betul benci Melayu. Racist! So what's the big deal about the Indonesians not understanding us if the Chinese in wonderful Msia can't/won't even speak it themselves ah??? How to understand you guys with your pidgin Malay? So jangan susah hati about the Indonesians, focus on learning and speaking the Bahasa yourselves first dong. The concept is very easy my man. See,you guys can't even understand each other's dialects in China and need Mandarin as a unifying medium right? In Malaysia, I'm afraid Victor, you MUST speak Bahasa Melayu,no three ways about it. You can chong-cheng chong cheng at home between yourselves la.

Jangan susah2 hati, we are not bothered about what they call or don't call us. If you are soooo.. troubled by it,problem solved - just migrate over ma! In exchange for one of the few thousands Indon who would do anything to come over. Would love to see you speak it as fluent as your comrades there because if you don't you know what happens ah. Or are you suggesting we emulate them,you cheeky son-of-a-gun. Yeah la Victor, I really do admire them too.They certainly know how to solve a problem.

Btw, have you done anything to help the Sri Lankans yet? No? Puisi benci ko ni tak laku d sana la.Jgan main2 dgn dorang tu, teruk padahnya. Tu la tak tau cakap BM mintak tolong orang Indon tulis jadi macam ni.

Victor Lee Simatupang,

Maybe you should enroll and volunteer to serve in the Dalit Freedom Network for a start? (DalitNetwork.org);

http://videos.desishock.net/index.php?module=item&action=show_item_full&itemurl=aHR0cDovL3lvdXR1YmUuY29tLz92PWszNlhnM3p1Q3VN

Hopefully this will enlighten and help bring you back “down to earth” and learn the true meaning of KESYUKURAN DALAM HIDUP.

In the meanwhile, ask your Indonesian friend to take you for a tour back to his hometown so you can see with your own eyes the true happenings there too?

And don’t forget to ask your grandpa to take you “balik kampong” down memory lane (from which province)and see the goings on in the daily lives of your uncles/aunties/cousin (surely many still living there, right?) from where your parents originally came from.

THEN COME BACK HERE AND WRITE A NICE PUISI ABOUT THESE PLACES, OK?

Watched a documentary. About this one country. A citizen killed an immigrant CHILD. Just because she was an immigrant. The leader of the country were being asked by the journalist "Is there any good that comes out of the child death". The leader said. "YES!". Shockingly yeah. The journalist asked, how so?

BECAUSE THE CHILD WILL GROW UP AND PRODUCE OFFSPRINGS WHICH WILL BECOME A COMMUNITY IN THIS COUNTRY AND SOON IT WILL BE A PROBLEM FOR US TO HANDLE THE SONS OF THESE IMMIGRANTS.

Harsh right? Thank god, the Malays are not like that back then.

But his statement is true. Just look at the problems that we have now. Arguing over which language should be used as the medium of instruction. The Bumis hate to remind the non Bumis that they are the owner of this land, but sadly they have to.

dear all.
i mean all, those who dah posted their comments and all those who will post and read this in the future. So long as the sun and moon existed( I wonder where I heard that annoying phrase)
Anyway,
these arguing must stop. seriously.
What? are you all kids?
Everyone, not matter what race, please try to realise the truth,
and admit your own weakness.
Yes, this land is the Malay's.
But now that the Malays have accepted the Non Malay, can the Malay tolerate them? And the non Malays, can you guys be grateful?
i mean, we all are from the same forefather...
Just that our culture, belief have differed, our skin color are different. so?
I understand the protecting attitude of the Malays, yes, who doesn't protect their own land, ain't that right? It is the Malays right. So the non Malays have to respect it. Same for the Malays, you have given some special status to the non Malays, so expect to respect the status. and vice versa, and so on.
Just please don't argue and cause other problems to arise. Please discuss and honor one another.
Just because the other side is acting like a bastard, doesn't mean that you have too? isn't it?
Please bare in mind that anything that you argue and dispute will one Day be settled, fairly, in the Afterlife. God is the most Greater Judge.
AND FLUSHED OUT ALL THE ATHEIST.

Cikgu Melayu di SJK(C) bersuara....
Kalau anda ingin tahu betapa pentingnya wujud sekolah satu aliran (1 M'sia)di negara kita, put your leg in my shoes! Saya guru KPLI yang dipostingkan di SJKC merasakan seolah-olah diri saya tidak berada di Malaysia setiap hari apabila berada di sekolah. Begitu juga nasib kawan-kawan yang ditempatkan di SJK(T).Anda boleh faham kan?Apa taknya perhimpunan, pengumuman penting, meeting, majlis2 rasmi semuanya dalam bahasa Cina. Kami hanya diberitahu perkara yang dirasakan perlu shj.

Betapa sukarnya untuk mengajar apabila murid-murid Cina kebanyakkannya tidak boleh bercakap dan tak faham bahasa Melayu. Boleh anda bayangkan kami guru BM terpaksa menjadi teacher! Mereka hanya tahu bercakap bahasa Cina dan sesetengahnya fluent dalam bhs. Inggeris shj.Tercapaikah matlamat kerajaan kita untuk mewujudkan semangat perpaduan kalau bertutur dalam bhs Melayu pun tak dapat? Saya bukan ingin menghapuskan bahasa ibunda mereka seperti Cina atau Tamil kerana saya tahu pentingnya bahasa ibunda ini.

Kalau murid Melayu boleh belajar di SK sebelah pagi dan petangnya ke sek. agama untuk belajar jawi dan fardu ain, mengapa sjk ini perlu wujud?? CADANGAN SAYA....

Murid-murid mesti diwajibkan bersekolah 1 aliran seperti SK sebelah pagi dan petang mereka akan ke sek. khas untuk mempelajari bahasa ibunda mereka samada bhs. Cina atau India. Anak-anak Melayu yang berminat pun boleh mengikuti kelas ini tanpa mengabaikan sekolah kebangsaan.Jadi takkan jadi masalah bagi mengekalkan kesusasteraan TiongHua seperti yang dibangkitkan oleh BaganSPU.

Ingatlah kita adalah rakyat Malaysia, Bangsa Malaysia dan perpaduan mesti dimulakan dari peringkat sekolah lagi kerana anak-anak ini masih boleh dibentuk jiwanya sebagai ANAK MALAYSIA!Ibarat kata pepatah 'kalau melentur buluh biar dari rebungnya'.
Inilah pandangan saya...
