The scrapping of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI) would start in stages, starting 2012 for Year 1, Year 4, Form 1 and Form Four. Form six and matriculation students are not involved.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said both Science and Mathematics would be taught in English and BM for national schools and mother tongue languages for vernacular schools, beginning 2010.
It seems that the public welcome such a wise decision and support it.
Although it is a highly subjective but it is a fair and just decision-making to the affected students.
Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said students sitting for Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) would be provided options to answer questions either in English or BM till 2016.
He stressed that the government would allow the present cohorts of students affected or "trapped" by the change in policy to study both subjects in both BM and English.
