Updated Sat 7 Dec: In Mickinsey Education System, after telling us that Tony Fernandes has been given TWENTY licences to open private schools in Malaysia, the blogger OutSyed the Box tells Sam Hamid and others fighting for the education system to press Muhyiddin to answer TWO pressing questions ...
The temper-ature at ASPIRES, the FB group created by parents upset with the way politicians are messing up the education system, is rising slowly but surely by the day. You can tell by the tone of the postings, e.g. a very recent statement made by Sam Hamid, the man behind the group: TSMY, we know that you are deaf but you cant be blind as well.

TSMY is Deputy PM Muhyiddin Yassin, a politician who has earned my respect for the role he played in helping end Abdullah Badawi's 5-year reign. As Education Minister, however, the multitude of challenges do seem to have overwhelmed him. What ASPIRES is doing - the tone of some of the postings aside (this is the social media, after all) - should help Muhyiddin overcome some of those challenges.
One of things I like about ASPIRES is that it strongly supports the PPSMI, the learning/teaching of math and science in English. There is no reason why the government should bow to the demands of people like Samad Said and the politicians who had encouraged them to kill a good thing for our children. They are not only in the minority, they are also wrong!
If you are a parent and you are worried about the state of the education system, come join us for PGIP4114.
