I am not sure what to make of this. Malaysia stands at 14th in the world and 2nd in the Asean region for quality of education.How nice if true!
Scrumptious! Suddenly, with the blink of an eye, Malaysians were smarter than the rest of the world.
Here, Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng rubbished the Minister of Education Muhyiddin Yassin for his mumbo-jumbo.
Here, the nerdish Oxbridge fella and Mr Know-It-All also ridiculed the minister.
I am not sure if Muhyiddin actually read the report himself or was spoon-fed by his staffs, who, probably, has little understanding of the reports.I, myself, find it quite difficult to translate some of the report to layman's terms.
It is about global competitiveness and performance.Malaysia came at No.21 on the list, which is not bad for a small country that get rubbished all the times by the opposition Pakatan Rakyat.Read the report here.
Not all reports get the right feedback to arrive at a sensible assumption.I don't believe our education system is of better quality than U.S,U.K,Germany, Australia and Singapore.If that was the case, why are we still sending our students to these places? Read world education ranking here.
Malaysia was not even in the top 30.Where the magic number 14 came from I have no idea. Maybe, Muhyiddin should publish his source to salvage his reputation.
For the honorable minister I suggest he checks his fact first before he says something that could embarrass himself.
