Would you send your children to the Local Government school?

They didnt! Read up!


Education Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammudin Tun Hussein’s son is doing O’ levels and will be going off to the United Kingdom this coming September to further his studies.

Deputy Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s daughter, Nooryana Najwa has been accepted into Georgetown University in Washington DC to read politics and international relations after doing her IB (International Baccalaureate).

Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s children are academically smart. However, it seems like both of them did not sit for SPM.

Before doing her IB, Nooryana had her education in Garden International School. Najib’s son, Norashman Razak had his education there too.

But Garden International School bases its curriculum on the National Curriculum of England. It teaches the English National Curriculum through Key Stages 1 to 4 and Cambridge ‘A’ Level.

Datuk Seri Najib and Datuk Seri Hishamuddin are cousins. Their Fathers were our former Education Ministers. Datuk Seri Najib’s father, Tun Abdul Razak, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, was the Education Minister in 1955. Datuk Seri Hishamuddin’s father, Tun Hussein Onn, our third Prime Minister, was the education minister in 1969. Fast forward, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak became our Education Minister in 1995-1999.

Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein is our current Education Minister.Well, there goes the saying, ‘like father, like son’ Hishamuddin’s son and Najib’s kids did not follow the Malaysian Education System (so I doubt they sat for UPSR, PMR or SPM) though they come from an ancestry of Education Ministers. Both of their grandfathers were former education ministers, one’s father was the education minister and is now the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia while the other’s father is the current education minister.

So why weren’t Datuk Seri Najib’s and Datuk Seri Hishamuddin’s children following the Malaysian Education System? Were our DPM and current Education Minister trying to be kind to not let the government subsidize their kids’ education by sending their offsprings to a private school instead of national schools?

Or is it that both Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussein do not have confidence in the Malaysian Education System because it is too crap that they had to sent their kids to a private school which follows the English National Curriculum so that their offsprings would not be screwed up by the already screwed-up education system in Malaysia?

Which is which? I do not know but I am apt to think that the latter prevails.

*SIGH* So much for being a kind and compassionate minister. If the Malaysian Education System is not good enough, then do something to improve it. After all, that is under your portfolio.

But if the education system is not crap and of quality and standard like what you and your counterparts have mentioned countless times then why didn’t your kids go through it? Why didn’t your kids go through SPM, then Matriculation or STPM before gaining admission to Uni. After all, matrics and STPM have the potential to produce Quality graduates, right?

How does the current government expect us to have faith in our Malaysian Education System when the DPM and current education Minister did not even put their kids through it?

I think no harm to put your children with government school as they had given the better condition to further their study with the international school after form 5 as well as other matriculation school. If you got money, u can always send your children to oversea. And also, subject that you learn from oversea not much different. They also start with "Apa itu Kimia? - What is chemistry?" The only different was the language. Hehehe.. is the matter on how you apply the concept is. For our ministry cases, of cos la.. they wanna show off that they are effort to send their children to oversea :P eh? Mcm saya lari dari topic oh kan?

Well, Malaysian Education System is a "National Disaster" my hubby said (One of the articles he read years back). And the victims are the children. Local grads? SOME of them were "Kena kasi pass saja, apa pun tidak tahu...alasan tidak kena ajar...", complains from the Managers, Principals I've met.
