It is an unmistakable fact now, that Malaysia makes the world’s most dumbass headlines. Check out the article below from TheStar today…
Teachers going mad teaching subjects in English
TAIPING: Some Malay teachers in Bagan Serai are “going mad” as they cannot handle teaching Mathematics and Science subjects in English, claimed a state assemblyman .
Dr Khalil Idham Lim Abdullah (Titi Serong) said the teachers themselves had to take English classes to improve their command of English.
While they are still grappling with the language, they are required to teach their students as well, said Khalil, who was chairman of the Perak Backbenchers Club in the former Pakatan Rakyat-led state government.
“The teachers themselves have a poor command of English. How do we expect them to teach their students?” he asked in his speech after a briefing on the subject at the state PAS headquarters in Jalan Air Kuning on Tuesday.
Some teachers, he said, “have simply gone crazy” because of this, likening the matter to the blind leading the blind. He claimed the minimum passing mark for both subjects were lowered to ensure that only a rosy picture was painted of the move.
Earlier, the gathering was told by Malaysian Translators Association president Associate Prof Abdullah Hassan that a big gathering is scheduled to be held in front of Istana Negara at 2pm on March 7 to protest against the teaching of Mathematics and Science in English.
Prof Abdullah said the argument that the usage of English would provide better job opportunities could only hold water if there were plenty of job openings.
Get this, guys – the teachers are ‘GOING MAD’ because they were asked to teach Science and Mathematics in English, simply because they claim to have a very poor command of that language. And to make the matter worse, these teachers (who have poor command in English) are also claiming themselves to be too fucking dumb to learn that language to cope. What the fuck.
I seriously do not understand why are they generating so much hoo-ha over this. Why can’t these delinquents just do it like part of their job requirements? Like all of us have to do to earn a living? These spoon fed buffoons are trying to blame the system for their own incompetency… and instead of taking the initiative to improve or learn, they’re picketing all over the place and bitching like they’ve been deprived of the rights to use their brain… (the kids learn how to be like that as well in the process, picket and bitch when you face any hurdle in life…)
That tells us a lot about our education system eh? (ministers looking like confused apes when asked a question in English in an interview, familiar?) And people are still wondering why our local education standards are comparable to those filth under a sewage tank…
