李资政会晤马华领袖 谈新加坡教育制度


内阁资政李光耀昨天在吉隆坡下榻的文华东方大酒店,同马华公会总会长翁诗杰及马华其他领袖会面。据李资政新闻秘书会后透露,双方会谈超过一小时,针对新加坡的教育制度进行了非常坦诚的交流。李资政也向马华代表解释新加坡之所以把英文作为第一语文、母语为第二语文,是为了让新加坡人既能跟广大的世界接轨,又能赶搭中国经济崛起的快车。马华公会是马来西亚执政联盟国阵的成员党,翁诗杰也在联邦政府担任交通部长。昨天参与会谈的马华其他党要包括副总会长廖中莱、总秘书王茀明、马青总团长魏家祥及妇女姐主席周美芬。另据《南洋商报》报道,翁诗杰会后向马国记者形容这次会面为“请益之约”。他说,双方针对马国的政治局势、各族群之间的互动关系以及华社所面对的竞争等课题进行交流,而李资政也坦率地引述往事,让后辈作为参考。
翁诗杰还形容李资政身体硬朗、思路敏捷,双方会谈大部分时间是以英语交谈,间中穿插一些华语。

I think Lee KY must have regreted that he did not emphasize on chinese/mandarin education during his era.
And glad to see that it is exactly what Dr Wee is doing now to fight for the attention and fund allocation for so many chinese primary school.
Wonder is LeeKY commented on our chinese school development?

Dear Low,
You're wrong, Lee did not regret his decision to emphasize english as their main language.

English as the primary language is one of step that allow Singapore to survive at that critical moment.

But, its kind of trade off,
English policy have their own benefit which they attracted foreign company to invest in their country. At that time, they having a Pro-Western policy. To survive, Lee had no choice.

现在新加坡发现中国崛起,已经慢慢开始他们的多语的政策。他们希望新加坡人成为西方和中国的媒介。

新加坡政府,李光耀的团队是非常有远见的。他们要做到的不是现在,他们注重的是未来,是新加坡人的生活,生存。
所以他们必须foresee未来的趋势,走在时代的前面。

马来西亚就像娇生惯养的孩子,
很多时候都是等事情发生了才修补,
国家政策也一样。也因为政府里面没有有能力的人,导致政策落伍。

种族问题也一大堆,
是啊,我们地球人都看到中国的崛起,华语的潜质,但是,我们能把华语纳入教育系统吗?
不能,这种感觉就好像知道明天万字开什么号码,但是不能买。

这个时候政府还一直阻拦我们华人子弟拿华语,尝试同化我们华人。就像印尼,一步一步的同化华人。新政策还想把考试科目限制成10科。什么都限制,那么华人还有“QUOTA”去拿华语吗?

JPA的问题根本就不在考试科目,相信大家心理都知道。

愚民政策一大堆,以为人民不知道。人民心理是清楚得很~

I agree.
Lee has made a right decision based on the situation at that time, the result proven so.

But not agree that "就像印尼,一步一步的同化华人", it would not happen here as long as long as we chinese stay united on this topic. Surely not happening at Dr Wee era.

We, parents are very dissapointed with the drastic decision to reverse the Teaching of Science and Mathematics policy. At least, maintain the Teaching of Maths and Science in English for Secondary School. What is your opinion in this matter. Please revert.
