Support For DLP Math & Science Teachers
In 2020, Sarawak will spearhead the teaching of Mathematics & Science in English (under the DLP program) in 1026 out of 1265 national primary schools. It's happening whether you like it or not. The Ministry of Education has already carried out the training (costing 11 million fully paid for by the Sarawak government) & the teachers assigned to those classes will faithfully carry out their duties, ready or not. Additionally, district education offices have been empowered as the primary support for our teachers (on top of the tons of other stuff they have to do).
Now, here's the bitter truth: If Sarawak fails, the rest of Malaysia can forget about it. Most importantly, the ultimate victims will be OUR CHILDREN & I cannot stand for that. Therefore, it is imperative that ALL MALAYSIANS do what we can to support this program. Together with a few allies of education, here's our small contribution.
Hey! The least you can do is TAG teachers who might be interested & SHARE like everywhere!
Who?- Teachers of Year 1 DLP Mathematics/Science in National Primary Schools in Kuching
