No guarantee in Constitution

-
I REFER to the letter "Let's work on new roles for vernacular schools" (NST, Nov 11) from Liong Kam Chong.

Liong is under the impression that the Constitution "guarantees" the existence of vernacular schools. There is no such guarantee at all. The Constitution merely states that no Malaysian shall be prevented from learning his mother tongue.

I am not too keen on vernacular schools because they do not use Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction, in line with Article 152 of the Constitution.

The Education Ministry was doing the right thing when it announced early last week its decision to standardise the Bahasa Malaysia syllabus.

I feel that vernacular schools should be absorbed into the national education system. We should not have three systems of education but just one.

All schools must have only Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction in order to help bring about unity in the country. Mandarin and Tamil can be learned in national schools as elective subjects (in line with the Constitution).

I commend Liong for saying that pupils need to master a higher level of Bahasa Malaysia and note his comment that the practice of placing primary school Chinese students through a year of kelas peralihan (remedial class) has a " humiliating impact on the pupils involved".

However, I have reservations about his proposal that "Chinese primary schools should attract and enrol children of other races".

That may only be done when these schools use Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction.

For 1Malaysia to be realised, children should be educated from small in 1School.
When they are still innocent and pure, they should learn to mix freely with all the other races.
Malays can learn Arabic while the Chinese can learn Mandarin and the Indians Tamil in POL classes.
Then only can there be unity and solidarity in M'sia.

Sdr Kembara Politik,

Kata Nazri:-
(http://www.thesundaily.com/article.cfm?id=41741)

"we cannot force other (non-Malay) races to sacrifice their characteristics and become Malays (Malaynised)"

"What we want is a united people and country, not forcing all races to become Malays (Malaynised)."

"Chinese and Tamil primary schools can continue to to exist, as long as these schools teach Bahasa Malaysia as it is the national language with which (Malaysians of) various races communicate and interact with one another to promote unity."

"I am now in Chengdu, China, and because I don't speak Mandarin I feel I am at a disadvantage."

"Malaysia is a multi-ethnic country where the various races enjoy the right to learn their own languages. Multi-culture and multi-lingual are the strong points of Malaysia, something which cannot be denied"

Soalan:-

1. Adakah Perlembagaan dan Rukun Negara Malaysia dicipta untuk me Melayu kan warganya? Kalau begitu, kenapa namakan negara ini negara Malaysia? Namakan negara Melayu sajalah. Bagi saya ada perbezaan ketara di antara "me melayu kan" dgn "berteraskan melayu".

2. Kalau Malaysia ini tidak berteraskan "Melayu" (dulunya Semenajanjung Tanah Melayu), kita nak berteraskan negara ini kepada apa? Cina?

3. Menggunakan BM kerana "terpaksa" dan menggunakan BM "sepenuh hati sebagai warga sejati" amatlah jauh bezanya. Buat masa sekarang, bukan sahaja sekolah vernakular yang "tidak sepenuh hati" terhadap Bahasa Kebangsaan Negara, kerajaan sekalipun apabila terang-terang membelakangi penggunaaan BM di merata tempat dan keadaan. "Semangat BM" itu adalah lebih penting dari "Penggunaan BM" di sini, kerana dgn adanya "semangat", "penggunaan" itu adalah secara otomatik. Tanpa "semangat", penggunaan BM hanya akan tunggu masa utk dikuburkan kerana penggunaan BM itu lebih bersifat "kemestiaan" drp "kerelaaan".

4. Dengan hanya "penggunaan BM" sahaja, tetapi "hati" tetap kepada Cina & Tamil, ini dapat promote unity?

5. Apakah Nazri juga akan rasa "disadvantage" apabila beliau berada di Moskow? Dubai? Paris? Berlin? Itali? Argentina? lalu dia kena belajar semua bahasa-bahasa ini?

Tiada siapa yang melarang sesiapa sahaja mempelajari apa juga bahasa pun di bumi Malaysia ini. Tapi soalannya

Adakah setiap warga negara Malaysia itu SUDAH FASIH dengan Bahasa Kebangsaannya sendiri? Sudahkah ia mengutamakan bahasa Kebangsaannya sendiri selari dengan Perlembagaan/Akta yang ada?

Nampaknya Nazri cuba nak "spin" ke? Atau dia ini tiada semangat Negara Malaysia?

Liong asked, "What roles do these schools have to make themselves more national and more 1Ma-laysia in character?"

The vernacular schools need only to adopt Bahasa Malaysia as the medium of instruction, the same curriculum and syllabus as the national schools - with Mandarin and Tamil as elective subjects. When these happen, more non-Malays are likely to enrol - they can, in fact, be encouraged to enrol in such schools because such schools would then be basically the same as the national schools.

The schools can remain physically intact, the teaching and support staff, the Board of Governors can continue, with adjustments gradually made to cater for the BM medium of instruction etc.

The point to note is that nobody has to lose anything. It does not affect anyone's culture as Mandarin and Tamil can continue to be taught and studied.

When they are multi-racial in composition like the national schools, they would be 1Malaysia in character.

sepadu.

malaysia berkata...

even the railway system in Klang Valley consists of various line. example Ampang Line, Sri Petaling line, monorail, KTM (rwang-seremban, sentul-p. klang)

these lines have no necessary to merge into 1 line. but they can exist in a same time, contribute to the folks.

what we see is vernacular education system can keep implement and it has nothing to do with affect the unity of nation.
