Why The Quality Is Down Though The Results Are Up?

It’s great that the government has initiated the New Education Plan. It is also heartwarming to hear that the Deputy Prime Minister has acknowledged the decline in the quality of students today and pledged to rectify the situation. There will be a forum to discuss the New Education Plan blueprint. I hope someone will raise the issue below. I believe it relevant when discussing the quality/standard of students today:


KUALA LUMPUR: A Facebook page has become the toast of students sitting for the SPM trial exams it has “Tips/Notes/Forecast” which have been found to be identical, or almost identical, to the actual exam questions. Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said the ongoing SPM trial exams had been devalued as students had been converging on the page for tips. He said that since the first day of the exams on Aug 29, students found the tips for the Bahasa Melayu papers for Selangor schools to be accurate.

    It’s been like this for ages. Do we still have to wait until election to re-evaluate certain issues? Why not years before?

    I know you realized every year, education is the prime stake holders in the budget funds. But still, through my personal experience, even schools had the cut for facility repairs, whereas, it was stated clearly in the budget itself. But why school heads finding hard times to get those fund as required? Same goes to modal insan. Until then, if not tackled wisely as a whole… more problems and more issues to handle. Too bad we can only speak, but held tightly by others in trying to make that change…

    Thanks for sharing.

      I do believe that the govt does re-evaluate every issues every years. And the Ministry of Education are getting inputs from many parties across the nation. Having said that, listening to all these people (rakyat didahulukan) sometimes can make things even worst. The problem is and will always be finding a common ground to work with. Even in a small PIBG meeting, we can see parents/teacher lobbying for something. As a parents I do notice that the text books keep changing every few years. Even for next year, there will be changes as teaching of Science/Maths will be reverted back to BM. What do we do with old one? Throw it away? Wow rugi la.. There goes your budget for repair works, etc. 😀
      Still, I’m not so concerned about the condition of school in Malaysia. Though much can be improved, what we have here is not bad. In fact we are so much better than many countries around the world. What worries me the most is students social behavior or rather the lack of positive behaviors amongst the student these days. Cheating and absent from schools are just a couple that been highlighted many times before. There are many more serious cases that I rather not mentioned here and yet when we discuss the year end performances of students in this country everything seems to be good and better each year.
      Btw, thank you for commenting in this blog. It’s a pleasure having you here bro.

    walaupun sesetengah pihak defies government effort to elevate the standard of education by saying it just rhetoric for PRU 13 or repeated the same restart menu button.. but at least there have something indication and acknowledgement by the authority to improve the current situation..

    I’m looking forward to have the truly modal insan!

    Sebab sekarang kerajaan mengejar kuantiti bukan kualiti….
    Sebab dah nak pilihanraya, jika kuantiti ni senang org nampak bbanding kualiti.

    Salah satu cara untuk menarik pelajar tetapi ada terfikir akibatnya.
