It’s nothing new, the Malaysian dilemma of changing our education main language of math and science subjects into Bahasa Melayu or English. It’s not obvious but using Bahasa Melayu have a long term effect such as incompatibility of adjusting to the world (since mostly are in English) and local citizens are more likely to sent they children to boarding school and vernacular schools that can lead to disunity of our Malaysia society. People post about ideal education system and comparing our local education system with other developed countries but these actions seems not enough to make the government to take any sort of action. I really hope the government can see in a more diverse vision and able to make the right move in the near future.
